My Opt expires this June and I was not selected for h1b
Last year I married my wife, who is a US permanent resident. We filed EAD (i-765),I-130 and I-485 all at the same time.It was delivered to Chicago lockbox end of Feb and we haven't gotten the receipt yet.
Looks like I need to take an unpaid leave at this rate, but my question is, can I remain in the US as I wait for my EAD?
I was talking to someone and they said only spouse of USC can remain here, and spouse of US permanent resident cannot stay. Anyone on the same boat and offer some insights?
