    EB1 or EB2(urgent help)

    I have a PhD with two first author publications and several hundred citations. I hold a director level position in medical communications and I am in the top pay bracket of my field. After submitting all of my paperwork to a law firm, my law firm determined that I am not a good fit for EB-1. I am now processing through EB-2. I am telling you this because the standards are super high. Only a law firm, after carefully reviewing your evidence package (be prepared to collect an evidence package) can tell you if your particular credentials qualify. Don't let a lay person tell you, it just wastes time.
  2. If I am currently on a O-1 visa and my I-140 (through EB2 process) is approved, would I be eligible for 3 year H-1b extensions? My specific case is I was in H-1b for 5 years. In my sixth year of H-1b I moved to O-1 visa. In the first year of my O-1 visa my I-140 was approved (I did a EB-2 process through my employer). Am I eligible for 3 year H-1 b extensions even though I am in a O-1 visa? Thank you so much!

    EB1 category

    EB-1 is determined by two steps, first you have to meet at least 3 of 10 criteria which is set by the USCIS. You can find these 10 categories in the USCIS website given below http://www.uscis.gov/eir/visa-guide/eb-1-extraordinary-ability Having a patent will help, but you will need strong evidence for 3 of that 10 criteria The second step is, the USCIS will determine the merit of your evidence. For example if you say you have Nobel prize, that is of the highest merit. If you say you have a patent, that is good, but has a lesser merit than a Nobel prize. So they will make this merit determination for every piece of evidence you submit. Please know that the government is very stringent on this merit determination. If you clear both step 1 and 2, then an EB-1 extraordinary ability will be granted. Please consult with an immigration lawyer who can review your particular lists of evidence and advise you on whether your case is viable. A patent alone does not mean approval

    I-140 is approved , when I can get EAD ?

    You will not automatically receive a EAD just because your I-140 is approved. You have to file your I-485 and then you will receive you EAD. And you can file your I-485 even if the priority date for your country is not current. But the approval of I-485 will only happen when the priority date for your country becomes current.
