AFAIK, the GC job has to be a permanent full-time position and not a part-time position.

Nothing ever is super-fast. Certainly not the green card. You had your share of waiting. Its just that you suddenly see light at the end of tunnel and before you realize you are out of it. So it feels like a dream.

There have been folks who have got their greens in two years flat. Not because they were the smartest workers around. That is lightening fast.

Congratulations to you.

So much pain we are facing in this process. Hope all see their GCs come through fast.
My attoreny said GC is for full time position and it is very well supported if the employee is working full time with the sponsoring employer. I can easily imagine getting it filed in 3-4 places working part time or not even working. I guess we can run into problems if working part time. There is also a column somewhere in H1B visa application form where they ask "Did anyone sponsor you an immigrant visa". Not sure if that Question comes anywhere in the forms for GC, but if so, what does one write? A list of other employers.May not be a good idea, but its my personal opinion, and I dont have any observation on this

Jimmy,
Did you change employer when you ported from eb3 to eb2, or stayed with the same employer?

NNreddy,

I know what you are going through...man...I am also in the same boat. I have been on H1 since 1997. It is really encouraging to see the EB3 folks getting the Green Cards.

With your experience you can change your job and use it to get Eb2

all those EB3 guys out there waiting for so long you should think about porting to EB2. All the information is on line, lot of discussion has happened, most of the people know the process.. so be proactive rather than examining patience. last thing i would like to see is some EB3 guy comes in and ask for some IV initiative to stream line porting

Good to know, some thiing got cleared at such pace, when USICS is notoriously known for working at snail's pace.

Surprisingly no uscis e-mail and online status is still "initial review"

Our journey in short :

How long in US : 10+ years

First Labor in 2002 . Changed job in three years before approval of labor
Second Labor in 2004 . Approved in 2007
Filed I140 and 485 - in July 2007

Since then I was enjoying EAD / AP with no complain .

I donate to IV now and then , but for some reason only once (for few days) got access to IV-Donor Forum . But always had a faith that IV is doing good work .
From non-donor IV forums and other forums I noticed that USCIS are transferring leftover Visas to other EB categories . I waited to see some thing coming to EB3 but ......nothing came .
My Lawyer told me that I can port to EB2 and it is a normal a process.

1. New Perm
a. Filed in Feb and approved in 10 days ( Prep work takes 3 to 4 months before filing )
b. Requirement : 4 years Engineering + 5 years minimum experience

2. EB2 I140 (TSC)
a. Filed in March - Premium Processing
b. My Lawyer sent interfiling letter along with I140 filing
c. Approved in 7 days (A# and Priority Date retained)
d. Same week got Green Cards and Welcome Notices - Super-fast Approval
e. No email and no updates on USCIS website

Not sure about the USCIS and Lawyer fees . My company paid for every thing.
Hope every one get the desired freedom asap and don't have to wait like me for 10+ years

Wish you all the best ......to everyone who is waiting for GC.


Thanks,
Jimytomy
Congratulations, your hard work and patience have paid off!

You're welcome. Even while we all suffer due to the retrogression, most of which is out of our control, I believe we can still remain positive in areas over which we do have control, like our sense of humor and ability to get along with everyone by agreeing to disagree in a civil manner. Unfortunately this forum of so called "highly skilled" sorely lacks it. Every disagreement/debate becomes personal and quickly dissolves into a shouting match. It's really sad. We need to learn to be happy for others who are more fortunate and sympathize with others who are less fortunate. We don't have to be highly skilled to be that...just human.
