Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.

With expectation that date of filing might get current for 2018. I am not sure what to do. Should I talk to old employer to see if they will hire me or should I push new employer to at Start GC asap? Please suggest what’s ideal approach here.

I mean EB3 and not EB2

Can you do both? What were the circumstances of your separation? Was it getting fired or getting laid off?

It was a laid off due to COVID.

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.
