I have been on H1B less than 1 year (was on F-1 before that) and was thinking of asking my employer to start my green card process, otherwise I would look for a better paying job if they don't agree.
I had the following questions for the experts -:
1) Do I need have a certain number of years on H1B to be eligible for green card filing ?
2) I work for a very big hospital (academic teaching hospital, they are under the academic h1b quota), if I am eligible and the employer agrees, how much time can I expect it will take to get the card ? (I have heard stories of people waiting more than 6 years)
Thank You !
