I am on L1-A and my visa is valid for another 3 years but petition is expiring in 7 months.
My company has applied for Green card in EB1C category and I am waiting for the I-140 approval.
Do my company has to apply for petition extension even if we get i-140 approval before petition expiration date?
What is the immediate next recommended step to do after i-140 approval?
How soon can I apply for EAD and advance Parole after i-140 approval? Can we apply before dates become current?
The soonest an I-140 beneficiary can apply for green card with EAD and advance Parole after i-140 approval is when the priority date is current for green card filing.
