This April, my employer filed h1b but seems it is not getting selected in lottery (still narrow hope). I will be in CPT work authorization until May, 2014. In this situation, Shall I make request my employer to file Employment based GC EB2 as I have 7 years experiences in my study field. I have read in internet, there are some students who had applied GC direct from F1 while in OPT without H1b. If so, shall my employer can file GC for me? If denied or rejected, will I lose F1 status? Thank you.
Whether an EB2 is possible, depends on the requirements of the position. In any event, an EB2 will take a minimum of eight months and more likely more than that.
Your employer needs to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise them, and handle the case. Your employer can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
