EB2 visa - primary - Indian, derivative spouse - Iranian.
I am in the PERM stage right now.
We want to take advantage of cross charge-ability. We got married earlier this year but have been in a relationship for 7 years. We met in grad school. My spouse works in Philadelphia and I work in Boston. I fly there whenever I can (several times a month) and she flies to Boston occasionally.
We do have separate addresses although I am a cosigner on her lease , and we have joint bank ac, health insurance, life insurance beneficiary, car insurance etc etc
Is it worth it for me to Philadelphia(I have the option available at my firm)
and re-start the PERM process all over again(will set us back by ~ 4 months)
