H1B i140 to GC due to Sick Kid

Recommended Posts


I am on H1B and have my i140 approved. I had a baby last year here in US and she was diagnosed with a rare heart defect and had to go through two emergency open heart surgery. She is still recovering and has severely depressed heart function with average of 7-8 therapies during weekdays. 

Sometimes i feel like taking a break of unpaid leave and caring for her but being on H1B makes it hard. Is there any chance that there is a way to get GC faster in such critical health situations?

You can check with an attorney to see if your current situation will qualify you for an EAD under compelling circumstances with an approved I140. But there is not shortcut to GC as far as I know.
