Default Time for GC process

I know this is not a good question as there is no time frame for GC process?
But please share your experience;
How many years it could take to get GC if it is started with in Aug. 2008 for
-EB2 category
-EB3 category

I am trying to understand the time (years) difference between two process.

Thanks,
Sanjeev.

Default Depends

If you start now and if get ur labor in 2-3 months chances are good for Eb2 that dates will be close to current by end of next year. So u can have EAD.

If congress passes HR 5882 then Eb3 should be current. Depends on company I 140 is not taking more than 1 year average for non concurrent filling.

Assuming some relief to EB community Eb2 will take 2-2.5 years and Eb3 may take upto 4 years. Everything is based on assumption here.

To get GC you need to be in line sooner or later then why not now..

EB2 takes X number of years
EB3 takes Y number of years
X >= Y In most cases.

I think thats the most accurate estimate anyone can give you. By the way...I'm not kidding.

Do you have 3 year degree? If so, getting into EB-2 is going to be little tough.

Good Luck.

Instead of asking such questions, go ahead first and file something as soon as you can, because there are other people who are filing in EB1, 2,3, family based etc etc etc... while you are just posting....

Always eb2 better than eb3, some of my friends who filed in 2002 eb3 have still not got GC, if you file in 2008 may be you will get it in 2015-2016... wow a long time.......

No, you can not. As one must have a single degree that is the "foreign equivalent degree" to a United States baccalaureate degree

Please refer to similar case
