How can my organization apply for green card on a L1A?

I went to the US on a L1B in 2011 and converted it to a L1A in 2013. Presently it’s being stretched out to 2017 and my organization is applying for my Green Card. Can they do it in EB1C? What is the timetable for this procedure? As I understand it, they apply for an I140 and I for an I485 – is this right? When an I140 is endorsed, it it enough? 

Answer: The subject of whether both you and your boss meet all requirements for appealing to you for stable situation under EB-1(c) ought to be postured to your boss, and his movement legal counselor, since just they will know all the essential realities of the organization, your position, and so on., and so on. We are not conscious of your record/case here.

By and large terms:

  1. On the off chance that the business records the I-140 appeal to asking for “Premium Processing Service”, then USCIS should return to the business inside 15 timetable days with either an endorsement (to a great degree uncommon); a RFE (in all likelihood, i not for all intents and purposes ensured) or refusal (uncommon without a RFE or two first).
  1. Yes, you can apply for the I-485 simultaneously with the I-140 if your need date is “present’, which is quite often current in EB-1.
  1. If not documented PP, then CIS takes 6 months + to arbitrate the I-140, and your I-485 can’t be affirmed without the I-140 being endorsed first.
  1. Yes, you can be advanced while I-140 in the process. Won’t modify anything.
  1. EB-1 is still “current,” notwithstanding for locals of compelling Hindustan.

Mr Behar is a brilliant immigration attorney. He was very accommodating in scheduling my husband and I for a urgent consultation. He gave us honest and direct advice on what options we have, as well as the pros/cons of the path forward. He is a creative thinker and clearly has an in-depth knowledge of not only US immigration but international affairs as well.
Thank you Giacomo.

Best Asylum Lawyer
I highly recommend Tatyana Edwards, she did a great job with my asylum case. My case had been pending for almost 8 years since 2015 . She took a look at my case, and managed to place it on on the standby list not on the waiting list which would have taken longer. Last month, I had an interview notice, did my interview, picked up my decision ( granted).

It's nice to deal with professionals
My friends who also had a positive experience working with Tatiana Edwards recommended this lawyer to me. My case was very complicated, the trials lasted for several years and the judge extended the hearings because of the large amount of information and documents.
