I'm not clear on your answer, this part is already know to me.
I need to know if emplyer is not willign what I can do to apply for Green card.
Is it possible to hire lawer and file the GC privately if my company is not willing to spend? if yes, how to proceed...please provide details.
Sorry for dragging this, I think you might understand my question now.
Thanks in advance.
Green Card Through Investment Green cards may be available to investors/entrepreneurs who are making an investment in an enterprise that creates new U.S. jobs.
Green Card Through Self Petition Some immigrant categories allow you to file for yourself (“self-petition”). This option is available for either “Aliens of Extraordinary Ability” or certain individuals granted a National Interest Waiver.
Green Card Through Special Categories of Jobs There are a number of specialized jobs that may allow you to get a green card based on a past or current job. All of these require a Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant, and are described in Section 101(a)(27) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (see the “INA” link to the right):
In some cases, you may be able to file the immigrant petition (either a Form I-140 or I-360, depending on your category) at the same time that you file Form I-485, known as “concurrent filing.” For more information, see the “Concurrent Filing” link to left under “Green Card Processes & Procedures.”
I'm inquiring about the d it yourself kind of process, since my employer is not ready to file GC.
Please confirm again.
