Currently on H1B and employer wants to start the green card process.
The time frame to complete the entire GC process (i.e. filing of PERM, I-140, and AOS) for EB-2 preference category will depend upon your country of birth. PERM and I-140 can be completed within 9-11 months (if really pushed), but the timing of filing for AOS will be governed by your priority date and the country of birth. If you were born in a country, other than India and China, I would say you have a pretty good chance to get the GC in 16 months, assuming priority dates don't retrogress and the USCIS keeps the rate of adjudication consistent.
