When is the earliest and reasonable date or month to ask my employer to start my green card process?

Asked about 1 year ago - Madison, CT

I need to ask my employer to start a green card process under EB-2 category for me. The problem is that I haven’t done my master degree yet. My master degree will be sent from the University by this December. In order to start a green card process the employer should work on a prevailing wage and other stuff which it usually takes a long time before I come into the picture. I need to get my green card as early as possible...Thanks!!

    EB2 will require a change of jobs AFTER you have obtained the Master's degree

    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.
