USCIS recently announced that an EAD (Employment Authorization Document) renewal cannot be filed more than 120 days before the expiration of the old EAD.  Previously, it allowed renewal applications to be filed up to six months before expiration.  Since processing of the EAD normally takes three months or so, this new limitation could create problems for those who rely on the EAD for continuing employment authorization.  If there is a delay in the EAD processing, applicants run the risk of having their old EADs expire before their new ones are issued.  This new limitation makes it more compelling for those who are eligible to remain in H-1B status while their applications for adjustment of status (I-485) are pending.
