I am in my sixth year of H1B. For some reason my employer did not apply for GC(Green Card) before. There are 5 months left to complete six years. In this situation I just wanted to get information on my chances to get GC. I have few doubts in this regard:
What is the best way to go ahead with GC process at this stage?
When I discussed with employer, as per them I can apply now and leave US when my visa expires. Since I will still have 3 months left by accumulating my previous vacations to India, I can come back to US after extending it after my PERM is approved and after my I-140 is approved. Do you think if this is possible?
What are my other options in case if current employer does not agree to apply for my GC?
One friend feels that even when I am outside US, I should be able to apply for GC. Is that true?
