Hi,

 

My OPT ends on 5/13/2017.

I am applying for OPT STEM, starting on 5/14/2017.

My attorney just sent out H1B application this Monday.

Is it too early to start the green card process right after the decision for H1B pick is announced? If it is denied, can we still go ahead and do the green card process? Will it pose any trouble in the future?

 

Thank you in advance.

H visa and GC are two different things. If there is a sponsor who can start with your GC process then please get it started ASAP, never is too early and it doesn't pose any issues.

No, it is not too early to start the process. Generally, there are steps that are required at the beginning of the process, such as prevailing wage requests, that can be started without potentially interfering with your F status.
