    Hi

    I am on my H1B visa in USA since Jan 2006.I got married to a Permanent resident in US while I am on my h1B.

    1) I would like to know if I could start my green card processing through my husband?

    2) How long can I stay on my H1B and when should I get my extension of H1B?

    Thanks Much!

    You may file adjustment of status BUT it will take about 5-6 years because your husband is not US citizen. So during this waiting period, if you are in US with other type of visa, you must maintain your legal status until the petition is approved.



    2) How long can I stay on my H1B and when should I get my extension of H1B?

    Normally H-1B has 2 yrs term with possibility of extension, so go for it if you want to maintain legal status while waiting.


    Thanks Much!!
