Same question here! I'm hesitant to do it myself because of all the documents that are required. Debating between a lawyer and EY Law. I am honestly yet to hear good things about EY Law but they are free.. i am willing to pay for an attorney unless the costs are too high. Would gladly hear if anyone here had EY law assist them through the process.

I think EY law is good for immigration. EY has one of the highest approval rates after litter selection

I did it myself. Deloitte lawyer said they don’t help filing marriage based GC unless the spouse is a citizen (my spouse is a GC holder). Called an external lawyer to get his advice on risks etc. but the application seemed straightforward enough.

Applied a few months ago. Already had an employment based GC application underway (I’m India born so it’s a long wait time). No RFEs on the marriage based case yet

Do you have someone to marry tho?

funny

Yes... My boyfriend of 3 years

EY told me that they wouldn’t sponsor the marriage based green card

Just to clarify. EY does not SPONSOR your marriage green card. They may HELP YOU file the paperwork. Your spouse is your sponsor.

Did EY say they would sponsor it for you?

No

Can someone explain very simply in their own words what the steps of going from H1B to GC is? I googled it myself but just confused about the forms associated with each step (I-140, I-485, etc.) and the approx time of each step. So far my firm has extended my H1B a month ago and while doing so asked me to briefly describe my job duties for the PERM labor certification application. Does that mean the GC process has been started? My h1b is till late 2024. What kind of timeline am I looking at?
