I have been living in the States for 5 years, working for 2 different companies as executive director (I had e1 visas).
The visa expired in 2012, and I currently living in Italy, where I am originally from, but I would like to get back to the States to live with my wife.
The latest employer I had is willing to take me back to work for him and start a process of asking a green card for me.
I have read about a consular process since I am living in Italy.... do you think that I have any chance of getting the green card? The job for which I am applying is specialized and my previous jobs and studies are related to the job.
Furthermore the company is italian and needs me specifically for this job.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Thank you for the high expectations you carry about AVVO. You want an answer and a precise one right here on AVVO. Correct? I do not think so. Consult with an immigration attorney in private and pay for the consultation. THis is not a general question but a consultation for quite some time.
Only a private consultation with an attorney could answer your question, and this might depend as much on your employer (and if they have a lawyer ask that lawyer) as it depends on you. You may have several options available, even outside of your employment, but to explore them fully you should consult an attorney since your individual circumstances play into that advice.
