Hey, our Green Card, Employment Based Category 3 (EB3) priority date is September 2009, we have seen for the last three months the immigration has been jumping 2 months, 3 months and now this month almost 9 months, meaning very soon we'll be current. After we apply, will the GreenCard come with the 2 year condition like other green card categories or how does it work with EB3???
ALSO, how long does it take to get the approval after we apply?? and how Much does it Cost, apart from Attorney fees???
Am so sorry so many stupid questions, but this is really bothering me, Please help.
Thanks and God Bless.
Hello Janet. No such thing as a stupid question when it comes to immigration. Please note that the EB-3 category is quite backlogged. And it does not necessarily jump by a month or two each time a calendar month goes by. The category can also "retrogress," meaning it can also go backward. This is because the cutoffs date prior to your must be cleared first and often the visa bulletin does not properly relflect your true wait time. Once you do get the green card, it will not be subject to a two year condition. Make sure you have an experienced immigration attorney to help you. Regards.
CIS usually takes 4 -6 months after filing but may take longer. You will receive a 10 year card if approved. The CIS filing fees are $1070 per applicant, minor children have a reduced fee as of today.
