Professor on a J1

Published Jul 7,2017 By Diana

If I am a professor working on a J1 and decide to self petitpon to a Green Card, what happens to my current visa? Can I continue working? What if they want to extend my J1 after I’ve applied for the Green Card?

If you file only I-140, then you still have the J-1 and can continue working. You may not be able to extend J-1 later though. If you file I-485 together with I-140, then your J-1 will not be extended and you cannot reenter the U.S. on current J-1.
