Self-petitioning while working for a company with H1B visa



I am interested in your do-it yourself package. I have some questions regarding the package.

1) I am a Ph. D. and now I am currently working for a company with H1B visa. Can I still self-petition?


Yes. Please see USCIS requirements for self-petition and also the free e-book which has answers to common questions.

2) How recent of those examples in the package? I heard that it becomes more and more difficult to apply for a green card, is it true?


The examples in the packet are based on a petition that was granted Green card in 2007. These packets were used by several successful people even during 2011.
