My firm is starting Green Card process for me. My issue is that I cannot get an EVL from the previous employer (a US company, worked in 4 years). Is there an alternative option? Thank you!

They won’t even pull a generic one (without detailed job description)? If they at least do that, you can include an additional, notarized, personal affidavit from your supervisor.

yes. If you can one of your ex colleague from that firm to write about experience and you can provide affidavit of that. Talk to your firm lawyers - they will guide you.

Thanks P1 and SA1. Does the supervisor / ex-colleague need to be currently working at the firm? Most of my team is gone after the layoff.

Folks at EY who've applied for GC recently. I joined EY in June, so about 6 months in. I understand there is a 1 year wait on H1B before starting GC process. But have there been cases when this has started faster for new hires? I'm thinking of requesting in the new year by first talking to practice lead. Added incentive is SO is in her third try in 2021 and in case doesn't get picked, would want to keep the H4-EAD option open as soon as possible.
