Green card filing query when a couple works for the same company

Recommended Posts


Me and my wife are working for the same company. Currently we are on work visas. We are going to file for Green Card. Should we ask the employer to file GC for us independently? Is there any way to file a single petition for both such that both of us can keep working? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Both a husband and wife can eventually get their green cards based on an I-140 petition for immigrant worker filed on behalf of one spouse. The I-140 Beneficiary is the principal applicant in the green card case. Nevertheless, the spouse can derivate benefits from the case by filing the I-485 applicant together with the principal applicant when their priority date is current.
