    Portability = "Same or similar occupation" and 180-day rule. Not enough facts to adequately give you an answer in re: portability BUT - There is no requirement in the statute that states that a beneficiary MUST be employed with the same employer after he/she receives a green card.

    Having a bona fide marriage with a US citizen should allow you to change status from student visa to that of conditional permanent resident if you and your spouse file the appropriate forms with USCIS. Timing will depend on where in the US you are. Should take approximately 6 months once your forms are filed and you should be allowed to remain in the US until a decision is made by USCIS on your adjustment of status application.
