I would do it in either one if you’re in ROW. Up until 140 approval I don’t think spouse and dependents matter much, but when filing 485/131 make sure to include spouse and kids, whomever gets there first.

I was/am in the same situation; my EB1C application is in concurrently filed, non-approved I-140 stage and my wife has her EB2, but still in PERM phase BUT she won the DV2021 lottery. I was told that it is not a good idea to have two AOS applications running and USCIS will make you abandon one of them. I would proceed all possibilities up to approved I-140 but then choose the one for which you will file the AOS. If AOS fails, you still have other I-140s or DV lottery as backup. What you CAN do with lottery is file that with department of state (so consular). I was told there is no harm to have an AOS with USCIS/DOHS and one with DOS.

Anyone ever dealt with a green card legal fee expense repayment, I.e. clawback by an employer? Is it normally enforceable under NYS/NYC labor law? Repayment is required 24 months after receipt of the green card.

Good Morning. Here's my dilemma. I have an approved H1B application which got picked up in 2019-20 lot and approved in Jan 2020, before the world went into lockdown. The stamping process was initiated but it couldn't complete as the USCIS offices were shutdown die to the pandemic. I have watched patiently about all the regulations Trump Administration brought in to deny any entry to H1B applicants who weren't already working in the states or who were waiting to return.

Hi All, a new analyst in Deloitte Advisory. Deloitte told me they will apply for H1B next year. But for Green Card sponsorship, my seniors told that I would be eligible in 2 years but i140 is only submitted if I become a Senior Consultant. My seniors told that I it would take upto 5 years of consistent performance to become a senior consultant, so my question is that if I get my H1B visa selected next year and it takes me 5 years to become senior consultant would that be OK for GC?
