Agree with M1, D is toxic...

How do you have your current work authorization, i.e. what visa are you on?

Yes, for countries that do not have backlogs. Folks from these countries could receive their green cards before a STEM OPT expires.

Was talking to this girl ( arranged marriage ) over the past couple of months(jun-sep) and things were progressing towards in the correct direction. During our inital conversion in the early stages, I had mentioned everything about my status (h1b. with early stages of perm,i-140 stage) and told her how she won't be able to get EAD immediately after coming the US) All of sudden she said(oct) she now does not want to come to the US as my status does not allow her to work immediately in the US.
