  1. It’s your choice. https://www.mmhpc.com/how-long-must-i-remain-with-the-employer-that-sponsored-me-after-getting-my-green-card/ I’m out. Good luck!
  2. If you switch companies too quickly, you could get into a world of hurt with USCIS trust me particularly if the company chooses to be vindictive. As someone pointed out, hang on for at least another four months. It’s a small price to pay in my opinion however you’re entitled to do what you choose. Good luck!
  3. He wants to eat his cake and have it. Continue staying illegally while his petition makes its way through the system then voila when it’s well cooked he goes back home for it quickly. Sorry, no free lunch for non-immediate relatives. He’s looking at a solid 15 years outside the good ole USA 🇺🇸. All the best.
  4. There’s a lot of speculation going on in this thread. It could be one of a zillion things and speculating to me is just going to get us nowhere. What concrete things can he do that could expedite the case? OP, good luck!
  5. The more important thing is getting in with your permanent residency intact however partly because of Covid and traveling restrictions they’ve been very lenient. With you just having a baby (and you could argue you couldn’t return because you were pregnant etc and didn’t want to vaccinate) I expect them to be very lenient and overlooking your relatively lengthy stay abroad without a returning resident visa.
  6. Nobody needs your sympathy. I fully support any immigrant who has gone through the trouble of applying for and obtaining a marriage visa following through and coming to America even if the American spouse changes their mind about coming. Immigrants are not sacks of potatoes to be cast aside according to the whims and flakiness of the American spouse. Quitting one’s job, preparing to migrate, notifying one’s friends and family etc and then being told don’t come is not trivial.
  7. Is this the gentleman we previously advised? Welcome! Pulling a gun on you? That’s crazy crazy crazy!
  8. I don’t see it the way you do. How does the consular know you have a strong desire for Canadian residence? You’re not going to get any meaningful answer because your situation is unusual and cannot be mapped to another to make any meaningful conclusion. Just apply and let the chips fall where they will.
  9. Your petition has been denied and being returned for revocation. What makes you think that a second interview will be just passport submission? Things don’t work that way. If you’re going to get that approval, it’s going to be the hard way. The hard way, the only way.
  10. I am not as optimistic about his chances at retaining the green card as most people seem to think. I found the reasons given for being out of the country this long a bit weak, he filed nonresident taxes which is an almost cardinal error, and after the SB-1 denial has waited another year plus to make a move. Right now he’s been away 3 years plus. Ironically I am convinced if he had just tried to return without filing the SB-1 he would have entered with few problems. I’ve never been a fan of the SB-1 when one has an unexpired 10 year green card. Always prefer taking chances with an immigration judge and fight one’s immigration case from within the USA 🇺🇸. I guess we will find out how it goes. Good luck!
  11. Why can't he come for a short holiday to obtain his green card and then return to continue his education? You can file to maintain his green card while away from the USA for two years, and then file again for another two year period. Alternatively you can do what @Family is suggesting.
  12. You have a difficult case ahead of you which is problematic on at least two levels. I wish you good luck, you will need it.
