    Couple of months later, both the H1B and EAD got approved. We received both the EAD card and the H1B I-797 approval notice with I-94.

    She has currently got a new job opportunity which doesnt support H1B transfer. However they are ok with her EAD. How can she use the EAD which is already approved few months back? Can some clarify some of my questions below.

    Is a change of status from H1B to H4 enough? SHould we submit a new EAD application once moved to H4. Or can we use her approved EAD card after applying the COS from H1B to H4?
    Should we wait for the COS approval or just the submitting application is enough to start using EAD?
    What will happen to her H1B. Will she be able to use the H1B again if needed. She has a lot of years left in it?
    Confusion is regarding her current status, H1 or H4. I would suggest booking an info pass appointment with USCIS and confirming. Or leave US and re enter on a valid H4 visa, no need for a new EAD application.

    This is my opinion not legal advice.
