I am in L-1 status and my company is proposing to apply for my GC in the EB1 category. I have five more months of stay in U.S. Is it advisable?


The answer depends on the strength of the EB1 case. If your employer is filing the EB1 based on the Multinational Executive / Manager Transfer category, premium processing is not currently eligible for that category, which means that you will likely need to concurrently file the I-485 with that I-140. If the I-140 is then denied, the I-485 will also be denied. It would be wise to consult with an immigration attorney to evaluate the strength of your EB1 MET case.  (11.Aug.2014)
