  • Help! now what? H1B Green card marriage new job

    Ok, here is the deal

    I am on my H1B visa expiring on 3/2008. That is my last extension. I am already married to an US citizen back in 07/2005. We have a family together and our child is about 1 year old. I just recently got a job offer for another company. They told me they are willing to pay for any immigration fees. What should I do now? Shall go ahead and proceed with the green card application thru marriage or transfer the h1b visa? I do not want to make this to a bit hassle that i might lost my job offer ...

    what the next step i should do?

    1) transfer h1b? 1 year a couple months left

    or
    2) I 380, EAD, and I485 ?

    I want to start working with them asap...what the next step?
    Thanks

        If one doesn't mind absorbing the cost personally, the 2nd choice will usually be the best. H1-B will limit your ability work only for said employer, I-765/EAD wouldn't. In the long run, marriage based GC usually have faster processing time than employment based (providing your employer willing to go that route).

        Considering your situation though, I would ask the employer to transfer the H1-B, since EAD processing would take awhile, and you can't legally work without an EAD. Once you left your former employer, you lose the status that will allow you to work legally in the US, necessitating the transfer.

          From what you saying, the safest route/fastest/cost saving to go right now...is

          1) transfer my h1b visa thru new employer
          2) proceed with the GC app thru marriage once I started my new job
          right?

          Thanks

            Yes, but do #2 right now. No need to wait until starting the new job and new employer transfer the H1-B.
