Does EB1 guarantee faster green card processing? My wife’s has given her two options. File for GC now or go to a foreign country for a year and come back in managerial position so expedite GC process. Has anyone done this? I myself am in the usual eb2 boat with priority date 2016. Wondering if the opportunity she’s getting is genuine and a better option

Green card stages - when can I actually leave or be layed off without any impact? I’m in a process of getting my perm. In the best case scenario I’ll get I’ll get it by September. I’m a European and I plan to file i160 in pp if it’ll be available at the time. At what time do you think I can lose a job without any impact? 6 months after i160 approval? Only with a green card?

I got my H1B approved last October and am planning to go back to my home country (China) after the pandemic is over to get a stamping. Will there be a chance that they won’t stamp my visa due to the current US-China relationship?

How long does it take for people to find a good job that is willing to do H1B transfer nowadays? I'm debating whether or not I should even try to switch jobs during this period. Is it too risky?

Curious question: Selected in this year lottery but for “h1b change of status cap subject FY2021”. I was planning to change company if h1b is approved this year(oct 1). Does this email subject line above means that I have to wait until next year October(2021) in order for my h1b to be officially approve and to change company? 😰

Deloitte folks whose H1 B visa is denied, if you are leaving the firm in less than 2 years, do you have to return the signing bonus? I'm confused. Technically it's not a resignation nor termination
