Labor filing


Recommended Posts



My H1 B expires in Nov, 2014. My company has started the process. I have a question regarding the green card processing.


Does Labor have to be approved before the end of 5 year period or does labor need to be filed before the end of my 5 year h1 B. Please clarify.



Labor can be filed at any time. It is no way related to your H1 since GC and H1 are different.

Thank you. If labor is not filed by end of 5 yr period, what are other alternatives for me to stay in US?


Nothing..even if your employer files your Labor in the 6th yr..pray that your Labor approves soon and also your I-140 is applied in PP and that too approves sooner...else after 6th yr you'l have to stay outside US until I-140 is approved in order for your employer to extend your H1B (you'll be cap exempt)
