Family Based Green Card Processing

Recommended Posts

I am on H1 visa and my employer is going to start green card processing for me.My real brother is a US citizen.So can i start my green card processing both ways(employment based and family based)? If yes then will it speed up GC process. I heard that family based GC takes 8-9 years in case of brothers and sisters.Please advice .

Thanks for your reply.

Can I apply both ways(employment based and family based) at the same time?

If yes then is there any benefit of doing so like will it be of any help to get Green Card Faster.

I am from India so if I only apply employment based ,how much time it will take for Green Card Processing...?

H1B is dual intent so no problems. However, B1/B2 is unlikely to ever be granted since it may not have immigrant intent.

You must keep your status on own (H1B) in order to remain in US until priority date. This is easiest processed via employer sponsored extensions.
