Yeah I realize that but I may have to change my job before I apply for the green card... cos I don't want to be stuck in this shitty job during the application process, which probably takes what.. 3 years??

Well if you can file PERM, that will give proof that you have an LC on file, then you can extend your H-1 passed the six years, once a year for a year at a time. Alltogether right now its probably taking yes somewhere close to 3 - 4 years. But yeah, you want to be at a job you like because once you transfer to a new job you have to start the process over.

Yes its pretty new. We've only filed a few cases so far but they've all been approved. Here is some basic info http://www.twmlaw.com/resources/perm_memo.html

I'm not an immigration officer I'm a legal assistant for an immigration lawyer. I prepare and file H-1B visas all day long, working for/with the software companies/employees.

LC is what... labor condition? LCA?

But you have to reapply only if you change jobs before your GC comes thru, right?

What if I bite my teeth at this job and wait till I get my GC. Then I can change to wherever I want I guess.

LC - Labor Certificate (1st step of GC process)

I-140 (second stage)

I-485 (last stage)


If you stick it out at one job and get your GC you can then go work wherever you want.

Well, I hope this process isn't as nerve wracking for me!

But I'm hearing good things about how the speed of processing is getting faster and that the govt is doing a pretty good job at clearing up its backlog!

Hope thats true!

Lesser wait times!
