EB2 Green Card
I have a Masters degree from US and based on the forum and Q&A I think I'd qualify for EB2 category for GC. I am with company A and am contemplating if I should go forward with GC processing or change the job. I am completing 4 yrs on H1 by this month end and would like to make an educated decision given the companies are not eager to hire on H1 if it is completing 6 yrs soon. Can you please let me know how long the process may take if it has to be initiated now? I would be interested in premium processing of I-140, adjustment of status and EAD.
For people born in countries that have an EB2 backlog, times can vary greatly from 3-4 years to longer depending upon a number of variables. One big advantage of getting at least to the I-140 approved stage is that you can carry your priority date to the next employer and get H-1 extension beyond six years.

I have a concern regarding EB2 application in my current employer, I will complete my 5 years experience next year and they are willing to promote me as a Clinical Specialist to count my 1 year and 1/2 as a staff/lower position with them to complete my 5years experience. My question is, is it possible that they could sponsor me for EB2 after they promote me as Clinical Specialist even if my 1 year and 1/2 experience with them?
Under the current law, it is possible to use the expience gained with the same employer if the labor certain job is more than fifty percent different from the earlier positions held with the same employer. Only a competent lawyer can help you assess the chances.
I want to know whether I am eligibile for EB2. Following are the key information. Is it a requirement to have 5 years experiences outside of US ? I have combined experiences of 6 years (US +India). Education - B.Tech (Electronics) in 2004 from India Experiences - 6 Years ( 3 years in India and 3 Years in US)
With a four-year Bach. Degree and more than five years of post Bach experience, you should be able to have a shot at EB2.
I am an OT practicing here in the US and came from another country. I graduated with BSOT and had an OT VOLUNTEER work for 2 years in an adult setting back home. Would that count as a part of the 5 years experience? And from that 2 years, I was not yet licensed OT for the first 6months.
GENERALLY speaking, for EB-2, there is no requirement that I know of mandating paid experience. Volunteer experience could potentially be used.
I have completed my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science Engineering (4yrs) and working as a Subject Matter Expert in US on L1B visa with a work experience of 4yrs. I have completed 2 Microsoft certifications and AICPCU certifications. Will I be eligible for processing Green card on EB-2 category ?
You will need 5 years of post-bachelor's experience. Certifications do not usually help.
We just did recently receive our US Green Card (EB2) for both my wife and me. Keeping all those melodrama apart, in short, is extremely pleased and has no words to express ourselves. We want to thank everyone working with Law Offices of Rajiv (Immigration.com) and especially Mathew, Suman-Ji, Bharathi, Anna, Rita and last but not the least Rajiv himself. On a true note, they are extremely professional and super prompt in answering any of your stupidest questions on Immigration. Rajiv is extremely desperate in taking cases through to positive destiny using and interpreting every piece of immigration law that according to me, a lot of his competitors would try and avoid.
In last 6-years they have done our multiple successful H1B/H4 renewals, this Green Card case, and hopefully would be the one helping us on our US Citizenship process, about 5-years from now.
All of you guys out there, if you have any immigration issues, and want a little piece of mind, please do not wait. schedule an immediate appointment with them and be happy from thereon.
Just for information, our US born baby girl is about 2.5 months old now. Once she grows up a bit, would surely want to pay them a visit. We wish them all the very best as of now and in future.
