About a year to get to PERM, current state is about 6 months for PERM approval. Then as uk citizen, You can file 140 and 485 concurrently. Assume your lawyer can file those in a month...then the USCIS takes anywhere between 8 months to 55 months depending on which center You are using. I'm hoping for most people the approval is about a year...so You are looking at slightly under three years

Good luck. Hopefully with the pandemic fading away, processing time is faster

oh following

One important point not mentioned above is your GC timeline is dependent on your country of birth and not based on your citizenship.

My background check is taking forever and now they are asking me to provide my letter of separation for a job I held 7 years back. This is making me anxious since I am also in the process of H1B transfer - I just want them to tell me if I passed the check or not before I resign. - Anyone have an experience with a spotty background check and how fast/tedious it was. For ref for both my last jobs (in US) it was seamless.

Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.

If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?
