Is it Possible to Submit Another Application for Green Card? 

Dr. William:

I arrived U.S. with J1 visa with my wife on 2001. By 2002 my wife applied for asylum and we all granted political asylum. Then we applied to adjustment of status for Permanent Residence. However, I noticed that it may take more than 10 years to get green card. 

I have a PhD and have been working in an University. I have a number of publications in peer review journals. To expedite my application, I want to apply for EB1-Extraordinary Ability for green card. Is it possible to submit another application for green card, while my previous application for adjustment of status based on asylum still pending? and do I have to hire a lawyer like what we did for political asylum application?


Answer:

Yes, it is possible to submit another application for green card, while your previous application for adjustment of status based on asylum still pending, because the EB1-Extraordinary Ability is in different immigration category from the political asylum. You do not have to hire a lawyer, it is your personal choice. But our Complete Do-It-Yourself Package for Extraordinary Ability Petition will certainly help you, which includes all needed information and samples.
