My company is filing for my GC under EB2. My country of origin is India and my wife’s country of origin is the Philippines. I am the primary applicant on H1B and my wife is on H-4. Can I take the benefit of cross chargeability, as my wife is a Filipino and EB2 queue for Philippines is current?


Yes, we have requested cross chargeability in such situations when filing the I-485. The I-485 for husband / wife have to be filed together in these cases, with a request for cross chargeability. This can cut years of waiting time for Indian nationals. (06.Oct.2014)
