Green Card Process Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am on H1B Visa and my employer has started my Green Card process under EB2 Category. I have my I-140 Approved. My priority date is March 2011.

My brother is citizen of United States and I have below questions.

1. Can my brother file for my Green Card process if I have I-140 approved via my employer?

If yes, then

How long will it take if my brother files Green Cards process for me?

Can anyone help me the the expert guidance/advice?

Really appreciated for the help.

Thanks.

He can file an I-130 for you, but it takes 12+ years for the PD to become current in family category 4, siblings of US citizens. And an H1 can not be extended past 6 years based on an I-130, it can only be extended based on an I-140.

See the visa bulletin for current priority date. Employment is generally faster than family. Your employer's petition will not benefit a family petition. You have to get in the back of the line and wait just like everyone else.
