L1A EB1 and H1 parallel processing

Chicago, IL |

I am currently on L1A with Company A. As I wasn't sure of the GC by company A, I agreed to a new H1 and GC filing by Company B., My H1 has gone through lottery and they have applied for GC as well (future employee). I believe I will have to go through RFE and it is expected to be OKed by Oct.

Meanwhile, Company A has agreed to go for EB1 GC filing!

Since two different petitions will be going on in parallel - is there any risk? What are the implications.

Even though its EB1, I don't think it will be through by Oct. BY then if Company B H1 is through, is there any impact on Company A EB1 proccessing?

  3. I woud also join of chorus of telling you this -either you still to your lawyer or you change the lawyer and stick to the new one. You need second opinion, schedule a consultation with a reputable immigraiton attorney and have a consultation. AVVO is for general information. It is not a substitute for sound legal advice.
