    If you can get the EAD, it will not be revoked, and you can continue to work with it. Unless, you become in violation of one of the rules for it.
    How long can we work with EAD, I mean did EAD have period of validity?
    thank you

    :santa5: ead has an expiration of 1 year, you need to renew it 90 days before it expires, but if you receive your green card before the expiration date, no need to renew. i hope this helps...

    What about not using the EAD say like until half a year has passed? Would it still be valid providing the employer does not mind?

    EADs only good for one year..........in a normal situation, you have the green card in hand before the EAD expires. What usually holds up things is that the nurse never completed the English exams.......and then the EAD is not renewed.

    USCIS is now actually asking for documentation of the previous EADs to see if this was the case. Many times, nurses just left that employer and went to another and restarted the process, illegal, but they did it. Now immigration is clamping down on it.
    ----------------
    As far as not starting for the first six months, it would be strictly up to the employer; remember that there is no guarantee that the job that you want woudl still be there........employers hire based on what their needs are then, if going the AOS route. That is why there are many that do not want the CP processing, as they need, or want, to have the nurse begin much sooner than that.
