No, at this moment, I still did not get the firm offer from the new employer. Once I accept the offer (should it really materialize), my current employer will no longer sponsor me. I will have to transfer the H1B and apply again for the green card.
My question is, whether it will be better for the new green card application (sponsored by the new employer), not to have filed ETA form 9089. Or whether it might be advantageous to have filed the form ETA 9089 already as part of the current application process. Or maybe, there is no difference at all.
I hope I have been clear. Please, let me know.

OK, great. So I will go ahead for now. Iwill send you another question before I do though.
Just a quick one. What would be if I was close to the 6th year? I presume that is the 6th year of the H1B.
Thanks and regards.
