When to ask employer to file for GC?

Recommended Posts

Hi experts,

 

My H1B started from Oct 1, 2013. I did my M.S. in the US, and was on STEM OPT before that. Just want to know when we should ask employer to file for GC? Is there a specific time/period we have to remain on H1B before employer can file for GC, or can we ask employer so file for GC once we are on H1B?

 

Please let me know.

 

Thanks.

You don't ask! They would file when they want to. Moreover you have not even completed 1 month with them on H1b..asking them could be risky for you with even job loss.

That's employer's wish. If he is willing to hire you ask future employee then he will.

An employer is not supposed to file your GC, everything depends on the employer whether he wants to or not.

you mean an employer IS SUPPOSED to file for your GC.

Did I said that??

The way OP was asking for help, I think he might be thinking that employer WILL file his GC.

Oh ok...probably I misunderstood.

 

between the employee and employer..its the Employer who is supposed to file GC...that was the point I was intending to make :)

Do they question in future about what work did you perform in first opt from start date to until 9th month because i was started work after 9th month.

Here is an answer (rather than a moral judgement): There is no time limit. Yes, you can request your employer for GC, it is not illegal to do so. Your employer can file even on October 1.
