Green card bond / agreement

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have question on agreement (bond) related to employment based green card.

I joined company 'X' 2008 which is acquired by company 'Y' (Big MNC) in 2010. There was no agreement for processing employment based green card from company 'A'. Company 'Y', drafted an agremeent with $20k penalty if the employer leave the company within one year after receiving the green card. I got green card 3 months ago and planning to leave company 'Y' due to tremendous work pressure.

 

What options do I have?

 

1) Pay $20k and resign.
2) Dont pay $20K and fight.
3) Negotiate the deal to reduce the amount.

 

Please refer any attornies who are specialized in fighting these types of cases. Your help will be appreciated.

 

Patas.

Paying 20K is nuts, Green card is freedom from employers who like to tie around employees.

 

What will they do if you stop performing, it's not like you need visa status to keep working under tremendous pressure. Consult with your state lawyer, won't cost more than 50-100$.
