EY people - does the firm do anything to help with marriage based green card applications? I got an email to start working on my PERM stuff but if I plan to get married anyway, isn’t it faster to go that route?

Marriage route is faster and it will take you 9-14 months to get your green card. Would take you the same time even if you are from a country that has a lot of backlogs. I just hired my own lawyer to do it, it's not super expensive. A lot of people also files on their own.

EY Law did offer to do marriage GC for me. My husband and I just did it ourselves without EY Law. I had a bad experience with EY Law during my L1 process and didn’t want to re-live that. For marriage GC, it’s pretty straightforward and you need to gather lots of documents

Hi All. My H1B with my current employer is valid till Aug 2022 and they are filing for an extension later this month. However, i just accepted an offer from another firm and they will be filing for the H1B transfer later this month as well. My question is, would it be possible for the new firm to file for my transfer + extension in one shot? Also, this is the end of my 6 year H1B cycle and my I140 with current employer is valid with a priority date of May 2019.

Question about H1B visa transfer: I currently am working on a H1B work visa on C2C and I have a ongoing amendment (Address change - Moved to another state) which has no update and is in process. Now, I am looking for a job change and if I get a new job with a new employer, they would have do a H1B transfer so my question is; Would the new employer be able to start a H1B transfer while I have a ongoing pending amendment? Has anyone encountered this situation? Any leads would be appreciated.

Asking for advice please. I’m making 57k as a Finance Coordinator (2 yrs). My work is a hybrid role: 1) Exec assistant for a C-Level exec, 2) Financial Analyst. I cannot become Analyst now due to an on-going visa application that is going to take about 1-1.5 years. I am very grateful that my company is willing to help me with my visa (around 10k) this year. But I am thinking about asking for 70-75k since living cost in LA is pretty high and sometimes my bank account can be negative. What to do?
