Unless you have a lot of money you want to spend needlessly, or there are serious problems with your application (which should not be discussed on a public forum like AVVO), it makes no sense to apply through your wife as well. You can only get ONE "green card", so what will be accomplished by spending more money and filing a second set of applications?
File the applications through your employer and be patient. Good luck!See question

Me and my wife live in queens ny and my wife go to college in Ny and I just get the work permit and I found job in Hartford , ct with bank is it will be ok if I go there and go to my wife in the weekend
You can do this, but the two of you may have to work extra hard to prove the validity of your marriage. Aside from that, Hartford is not that far from New York City. I have had clients in the same situation as you, and they have commuted each day. By doing what you are describing, you are potentially creating problems where none have to exist. The process of applying for your permanent residence is hard enough; why add to the aggravation if you don't have to?See question

Your situation needs careful review and analysis which cannot and should not be done through a public website like AVVO. Since it is likely that your potential employer retained an experienced immigration attorney for the H1B, it may be a good idea to consult with that attorney fro advice. Otherwise, I would suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney near you.

Hello, My name is as follows (fictitious name for example): First Name = John, Last Name = Carter. I came to US in 2010 and have following situation: In the first page of my passport : Given Name = John Carter Surname = Empty In the VI...
In all honesty, you should have dealt with this when your passport was issued with the incorrect information. Everything which has occurred since has been based on this error. You may be able to get your country's consulate to correct the name error on your passport, so long as you have the proper documentation to prove your correct name. As to the USCIS documentation, I do not believe that they can be amended. You will have to go to the consulate and explain what happened to the consular officer, and hope that your explanation is acceptable.
I wish you good luck, and I think you are going to need it.See question
Can I marry a person who is from an EU country who is the same sex as me/female and bring her to the US to live? If I can't meet the requirements of Form I-864 because I don't make much money (I make just above poverty level wages), does that mean...
You can marry someone from an EU country or anywhere else; there are no restrictions regarding the citizenship of a potential or actual spouse. If you don't earn enough income to satisfy the minimum requirements for the I-864 (as per the current I-864P), you will need to file the I-864 anyway, as that is required by law. You will also need a co-sponsor who has the financial ability to file an I-864.
You may qualify for no- or low-cost assistance from social service agencies near you. I would strongly urge you to look into this. good luck!See question
Will I be able to use my employment card to show I have withholding status to come back to NY?
Traveling to Puerto Rico is considered a 'domestic' flight since it is within the US. Despite this, there is usually some CBP inspectorial review of passengers. If you are going to travel to Puerto Rico, make certain that you carry copies of your documentation showing the grant of withholding, and remember that you CANNOT take any trips to any nearby non-US islands, territories, or countries. Since it is likely that you had an experienced immigration attorney representing you in your withholding case, I would strongly advise you to consult with him/her before you make any plans.

Hi My question is regarding L1B validity and I94 Validity, which one takes precedence. I came to US in Jan 2011 on L1B Visa. Then I went for vacation for 3 weeks to India in 2013. When I entered US again in 2013 on L1-B,...
There are several factors which come into play on this question, among them being the expiration date of the L1B petition, the expiration of the L1B visa, and the expiration of your current passport. Since it is likely that your employer retained an experienced immigration attorney to represent the company with regard to the L1B, I would strongly suggest that you speak with that attorney regarding this matter.

I have PhD in Computer Science from a university in Canada. I'm curious if this degree is equivalent to Doctorate degree in the US and whether I can mark "Doctorate" as the highest level of education in PERM Form 9089, field J.11?
A professional educational evaluation service would be capable of advising as to this, and the experienced immigration attorney your prospective employer has likely retained to represent the company would normally have such an evaluation done as part of the PERM process. Also, you need to understand that it is the minimum job requirements, not your education, which drive a PERM application.See question
