Hi experts,

 

My H1B started from Oct 1, 2013. I did my M.S. in the US, and was on STEM OPT before that. Just want to know when we should ask employer to file for GC? Is there a specific time/period we have to remain on H1B before employer can file for GC, or can we ask employer so file for GC once we are on H1B?

 

Please let me know.

 

Thanks.

That's employer's wish. If he is willing to hire you ask future employee then he will.

An employer is not supposed to file your GC, everything depends on the employer whether he wants to or not.

Here is an answer (rather than a moral judgement): There is no time limit. Yes, you can request your employer for GC, it is not illegal to do so. Your employer can file even on October 1.
