Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.

Once the petition and green card are approved, you don't have to keep working for the current company but you you need to continue working in the field specified in the NIW petition to continue to benefit the US. Otherwise USCIS could revoke permanent residency.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!

Hi Jennifer. That's my understanding if you self petition for NIW - but I just want to confirm if the petitioner is a company do you have any obligation to stay in your current company after the green card is issued and if so how long do you recommend?
Expert:  Jen Marie, Esq. replied 1 year ago.

If it is a company then there is no legal time you must remain, but it is recommended that you stay at least 6 months in case there is ever a suspicion of fraud. Best of luck!

Hope that helps and that I have earned your positive rating.
