Recent L 1B questions

Guillermo, and I have asked you questions before. I have

Hi Guillermo,My name is ***** ***** I have asked you questions before. I have some follow-up questions, and to remind you my situation-I'm currently in H-1B status, my partner is in L1B. His company is in the process of sponsoring him an EB3 Green Card, where they recently got his labor certificate approved. The next step will be filing the I-140/485 (his PD is current). We are about to get married, so I'll be listed on his I-140 as spouse and we'll file I-485 concurrently together.1, If our I-485 are approved, will my green card be conditional? (I know that if you marry a US citizen/green card holder, you can only get a 2-year conditional green card first.) Will my green card be marriage-based, or employment-based?2, Since I get the green card as the spouse on his EB3, in the future, if our marriage doesn't work out and we get divorced, will my green card still be valid?3, If we get divorced and years later I marry another foreign person, will I be able to sponsor him/her a green card? (Provided both marriages are bona-fide)4, If in any circumstances, his green card gets revoked (like, leaving his sponsoring employer too soon after AOS is approved, committing a crime, etc.), will it affect mines? I basically just want to know, will my green card be a regular permanent green card, or one that always associates with him.)Thanks so much!

Hi ,I completed my 6th year H1B visa on March 16th 2017. (would have additional 3 months as i was outside US). My employer applied for H1B extension in March 2017 for 1 year based on my pending PERM which was filed in April 2016.However my PERM request went to Supervised Recruitment in December 2017 and now my employer has withdrawn my PERM application.My H1B extension went for an RFE and since my PERM will not be processed further, my employer is now telling that they are not going to respond to my H1B RFE and that the maximum period i can stay in US is till June 1st 2017.Please let me know what options do i have now.1) My employer is willing to process another VISA category L1B for me. Can my employer raise L1B for me at this point?Is there a cool off period before my employer can request an L1B for me?2) Will there be any problem with my new L1B request due to the PERM being withdrawn.

J. Senmartin. Guillermo, i've consulted with you in the past

FOR Guillermo J. Senmartin.Guillermo, i've consulted with you in the past a bit but let me recap.i'm currently on an L1B visa, that expires on July 2018 (after 5 years).i've started a PERM process with my current employer and my labor certificate was approved a few weeks ago.My partner is Chinese with an H1B visa and we were wondering if it makes any difference to get married before i file I-140 and list him as spouse or i can do that later when filing I-485?Also, if i file the 2 forms concurrently does it shorten the overall time it would take to get a green-card?I i file I-485 after I-140 is approved, what's the worst case scenario in terms of the overall time it would take? Assuming it will finally get approved.Thanks.
