Applying for spouse's H1-B while she is waiting for F2A based GC in India

Recommended Posts


I have a GC and currently residing and working in India with a valid re-entry permit for 2 yrs. I understand re-entry permit is not a guarantee but have travelled twice back to US on business and family related.


I'm planning to apply for F2A GC (I-130 initially) for my wife and child by residing in India in the next couple of months. Eventually planning to return to US before the 2 yr limit. But she is also looking for a H1-B job back in the US. If she gets a job and the employer is ready to sponsor H1-B how would the GC application work?  Can these two be processed in parallel?


What are the complications and what should I avoid to make things smooth? Thanks in advance.
