@ PWC - I will leave the answer for "When" to the other esteemed PWC folks but comment on the "expedited" question . The US Govt. is not obligated to take care or even thinks what your needs are . You are in a queue and what dictates how things move in the queue is when you entered the queue . That's the stark reality of this fucked up system called immigration that "Change" and "Hope" could not fix it . Now if you are a rocket scientist you could ask PWC to file under a different category to get you a GC.

I think your wife can get an EAD based on your H1B. The rules changed a couple of years ago.

@D1: not aware of this rule, but I wish it were true. @A1: it is indeed a screwed up system. However, my question was more on the lines of- if I can get the green card filing expedited. How soon can I get my firm to file for it or Is there a defined timeline?
