J2 visa to EB2 through employer

Published Feb 27,2018 By Sudhanva

Hi,

I am a post-doc on a J1 visa. My wife works for a company on her J2 visa and they would like to sponsor her Green Card. I have applied for the J-1 waiver and my application is being processed by the USCIS (have already received Favorable recommendation). My question now is, with our DS2019 expiring 28th February 2019, can she apply for an EB2 without converting her J2 into an H-1B? Does she have to maintain either a J or an H-1 status till the processing is complete? Also would that affect my chances of applying for a Green Card later through my University? Please let me know.

Thanks

Sudhanva

Hi Sudhanva,

Before answering, what is your and your spouse’s country of birth?
