Lot of people who were working on H4-EAD and were eligible for H1B, have already changed their status to H1B.
If you can, you should too convert as early as possible to keep your job and income source unaffected.
Should I change status from H4-EAD to H1B?
If you are eligible for H1B specialty occupation visa, we strongly recommend to change your status to H1B to avoid discontinuity due to H4 EAD issues.
But, remember, you can start work on H1B only after your H1B change of status is approved.
Can a Lawsuit be filed against H4EAD withdrawal?
Depending on what rule DHS comes out with, the chances are high and a lawsuit stay can be obtained by H4-EAD groups in their favor, which may take years to reach a decision.
