ThankYouForHelp Posted December 1, 2021 Report Share Posted December 1, 2021 I was with Company A on H-1B for 6 years until 2015 but had to take a work break in 2015 so transferred to H4 visa. I have been working for Company B on H4-EAD for 3 years. I started with Company B as a contractor and converted to full-time for 5 months now. I have my I-140 Approved with Company A for EB2 with a Priority Date of Sept 2012. The Filing Date is current for me now and most probably the Final Action Date will also be current in a few months, as it is already May 2012 now. I spoke with Company A and they are ready to rehire me on H-1B so that they can file for my GC. However, I still have to talk to my current employer Company B to see if they agree to change my full-time position to contracting. I have some questions in that situation: (1) If I change my visa to H1-B with my former Company A, will they be able to file for my GC as soon as my H1-B is approved or will they have to wait for some time before they can file my GC? (2) My current employer Company B will ask me for how long do I have to be with them as a Contractor. So, I want to know approximately how long will the whole process take to transfer from H4 to H1-B and then apply for GC and get GC in hand. Thank you for reading this long post. Will appreciate your inputs! Quote Link to comment
