Hello,

I'm currently on F-1 visa currently in my 8th year. I have already used my STEM OPT and currently working on a CPT. 
Question1: I like to know if I'm eligible for green card. And if I'm eligible will that solely depend on the employer to sponsor me. 

Question 2: If I have to change the employer in the future can I transfer my pending green card application to the new employer.

It depends on the green card category you are filing under. If it is the normal process for most professionals, i.e., the PERM process, then you will need an employer sponsor and unless you already have an AOS pending with USCIS that qualifies for AC21, if you wish to change employers, that new employer will need to start the process again. If it is a self-petition, a job change may not interfere with the process. To discuss your personal circumstances it is best to speak directly with one of our attorneys.
