Hi,JA: Hello. How can we help?Customer: I have an immigration related question in regards ***** ***** wife's green card applicationJA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I am in NYJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Hi,I am a PR in the US for a little more than 3 years now and i have just filed for my wife's Green Card (Both of us are Indian citizens). As per the current visa availability, her priority date is in 1 year 10 months. She already has a 10 year multiple entry B1/B2 visa from last year and she has visited the country already in June 2016 for an educational conference, but at that time i had not applied for her Green Card. Our marriage was in India, in September 2016. She is currently doing her Doctorate studies (PhD) in Singapore.Will she be able to come to the US on her B1/B2 visa while her Green Card is under process? We do not intend for her to overstay her visa. She still has about 1.5 years left in her program in Singapore. If she might be allowed to visit the US, is she eligible to come for visiting me, or is it only for conferences or such (which was mentioned in her B1/B2 visa application request) that she would be allowed to enter?Also, is it okay for her to do job searching online in the US while her Green card is under process?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have seen that the fees for the lawyerr varies by urgency and etail. What is the repsonse time in general for different priorities?
