Default Skip EB3 if spouse has master degree

Hi All,

I heard that applicant can file EB2 directly(skip EB3) if your spouse has master degree, is that true?

Thanks for your answer/reply.

You cannot skip to EB2 even if you have masters degree. The job must have a requirement for an individual that has a masters degree your having one does not make you eligible.

I think it's time for our community to show a little humility, stop being so vain and try not to use the term "highly skilled" at every available opportunity. It just makes us look like jackasses. Even rocket scientists don't go around saying they are rocket scientists all the time.

Default The answer is NO

Here are somethings you need to understand. Who is applying for green card as primary you or your wife. The reason is the dependent person's qualification does not matter in GC. So even if your wife a PhD in Science with lots of patents to her name and she is filed as dependent on your GC which is EB3 (based on job requirement & your qualification) she is counted as EB3. But if your wife gets a job where her employer files her as EB1 you will automatically be added to EB1 ( as dependent on her application). I guess your confusion is based on GC criteria used by Canada & Australia where they award points based on qualifications of both spouses. In USA it is not the case. I hope that answers your question.

Thanks for your answer/reply.
you can do whatever you like..only to get rejected. C'mon...

The fact that you can use your spouses country of birth at 485 stage is gud enough...
