    Yes, USCIS and NVC will still process your papers. But you will only reach up to Packet 3 and then your papers will lie in wait until such time your priority date will become current and you will start the last leg which is waiting for the interview date and interview.

    I am sorry, I am only familiar with CP( consular processing)and not familiar with EAD. You can pm JonRNMD, I think he is familiar with it. Give it try.

    Good luck!

    a friend of mine who is an immigration lawyer told me that EAD can still be given... well i would have to confirm again to my lawyer... she gave me an affirmative answer but i will talk to her again....

    my lawyer also told me that I can get my EAD as long as I-140 and
    I-485 is already filed. the downside is I can not get my immigrant visa until the Visas are current again.

    If that is the case and its true then its good because you can work here while waiting for your PD to become current again.

    Yes, the PD is the date they filed your I-140. They will process your DS-230 forms but they won't send your Packet 4 until your PD becomes current.
