My wife has an H1B visa and lives in Pennsylvania, USA. I have an H4 visa, but still live in Germany. Her employer would like to sponsor her an EB3-Greencard. The PERM-Process will (hopefully) be approved shortly and the immigration lawyer involved is preparing the I-140 right now. Originally it was planned that I enter the country before the I140 is applied for and we then file an H4-EAD.
Due to the current developments in the US labour market by Covid-19 (=26 million new unemployed people), we now want to do the consular processing for me.
My questions: When my wife has received her green card, how long will the consular processing procedure take? And: do I have to submit any documents for me already in the I140 process (for my wife)
