Default Need advice with GC

I need some advice. I joined a bank and they promised me that they will take care of my GC. They were trying to file labor last year but they got 20+ responses for the job posting and they decided to redo it in 2009. Meanwhile they got acquired and now they published a policy that “due to implied restrictions of TARP they will not do GC for any team member”. My 6 year H1 completes on December 2010. I need advice on what I should do. I could think of two options:

1. I leave my present job and find something else, one who is willing to sponsor GC.
2. I keep on working with bank and try to find a consulting company to do my GC as future employer and join them, after I get laid off or visa expires.

I am inclined for second choice as I am at a good package and will definitely have to take a pay cut and miss out on severance payment when I get laid off, which could be soon.

Gurus do you think it is even possible or worth trying to find an company who is willing to do GC without joining them? Also what would you do, if you were in my shoes.

Thank you very much.

Now a days consulting companies are canceling H1B visa for their employees on Bench. Most of the people who are working in the consulting companies are getting RFE's in their green card process.

If you can find some company to sponsor future employee green card, then that is a very good option.

Also try for future green card option till November this year, If that didn't works out for you then try to find an alternative before 13 months (You labor needs to be filed before 365 days.)

PS : You can claim exception for the days/months while you are out of the country in this 6 years of h1 time. (May be you will have couple of months time from this)

Thank you very much NRK for your quick reponse. I didnt knew that I can the days aprox 4 months, so I am good even if I apply labor till April 2010.?

BTW, typically how long does it take to file for labor once I join a new company? I am trying to calculate backwards the last day I need to resign if I am not able to find anyone to sponsor GC as future employer

Sk,
I was in similar situation back in 2004. The key right now is that your H1B will expire in Dec 2010. In order to extend it beyond the 6th year, your labor must be filed for at least 1 year. Hence, you MUST file your labor before Dec 2009. Time is running out...you only have another 3 months or so to transfer your H1B and file a new labor. Good luck.

According to the law the labor advt should be 60 days or so. (This might change according to the state. i am not sure about this) But talk to different consulting companies and see if they could file your labor on the day you joined in the company (or with in the first month by using the existing job advt's)

My guess is time is running out. Better take a decision by October at most. In case if you need to wait for couple of months in the new company for your labor petition.

Sk,
Also check if the new company has had any recent layoffs. If so, the labor may be rejected for obvious reasons.
