Greencard with another Employer

Recommended Posts


My friend is working with Employer A but that employer is not ready to file GC so he has filed Greencard with employer B. Is it possible ?

He told me that Greencard is for future Permanent Employee not for Temporary employee, still i am not getting this..anybody have some idea abt legality of this case ?

Your friend is correct. The H-1B governs a person's current status while the green card application is for a future job. Most employers are not willing to sponsor an individual for a green card unless the person is already working for the employer. However, it is not a requirement that the person be working for the green card sponsor while the application is pending. Please note, however, that the employer is required to show that it has the ability to pay the proffered wage from Priority Date continuing until the green card gets approved. Also, the person will need to join the green card sponsor pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Labor Certification/PERM and I-140 petition upon approval of the I-485 application at the latest.
