Work in USA without any sponsorship and Green card processing time in EB2 category
While looking for options to apply for green card, I came across your website. It sounds very interesting and helpful.
Well, although I do not intend to settle in US but because of funding issues and short term visa extensions, I want to apply for green card. Do you know for how long once I apply for green card I can work in US without any sponsorship or visa?
Green card self-petition application has two stages I-140 and I-485. Once you apply for I-485, you can stay as long as I-140 or I-485 are not denied. If both are approved, you will be a permanent resident and can stay as long as you wish.
The documents that you suggest ordering are dated 2008. I was wondering if there is any change in the procedure or forms since 2008?
We keep our packets (forms as well as petition) up to date. We heard of two approvals last month using these packets.
Do you know generally how long it takes for green card processing in EB2 category? What if my case gets rejected? I understand that you may not have answers to all my queries but surely would know better than me so I am asking.
Thank you for your time and help.
I-140 approvals are fast, typically 3 months or less. If you are from India/china there is a long wait for I-485 application. Once applied I-485 processing and green card approval typically take 3 months or more. You can legally stay and work in the US after I-485 is applied.
There can be several scenarios in the case of rejection depending on your visa status. Please let us know your nationality, current visa status that you intend to be in during I-485 application to provide a better answer.Sincerely
