I have 3 years degree and 10 plus years of experience. I am on EAD with EB3 PD Jan, 2007. I have started my masters in May, 2011 and about complete my two courses out of 12. Can I use my completed courses towards my educational evaluation and make qualify my case for EB2 filing with new employer?

I heard that even if my master is in progress and I can use my completed credits towards my educational evaluation and make it equalence to US graduate program.

Please let me know your advice.

I am frustrated and would like to file EB2 and move with life.

Thanks,
Matt.

Forget about legality for a second, look at the number of consulting companies getting busted every day!

Just a precaution, nothing against anything!

Don't misinterpret, please use in proper context, the question was employer is not willing to file EB2 and one of the reason could be expense,hence my point asking to pay from your packet to avoid any burden on your employer. Eventually it needs to be filed by company itself

All it boils down to a good lawyer, a good lawyer wouldn't even file your EB2 perm without evaluating your credentials, so you have nothing to lose.

I think 3+3 is equivalent to 4 year degree anyday, you can ask any good lawyer or evaluate your credentials yourself

Risk, seriously! what risk? You must know EB2 filing has absolutely nothing to do with your existing Eb3 case,so on contrary, the actual risk would be to do nothing and waiting for miracle.

Not only filing, Employer need to pay for it too. Anything short of that is illegal

3 + 3 (3 year bachelor + 3 year master) is not equivalent to 4 year degree but it will sail through EB2 if the job requirement says Masters

Congrats ek_akela on your EB2 140 approved with old PD of 2003. Is your I485 also approved same time and NSC or TSC?!

Today I am glad to inform you that I got my EB2 140 approved with old PD of 2003. I work for a small consulting company and during this process no questions/RFE asked and end-to-end it took slightly less than 5 months(Of course, I filed premium processing for my Eb2 140).
So i would advice to folks with pending 485 of EB3 PD, this is the best option you have, you have nothing to lose(except your sheer laziness) go for it :-)
If you have any questions in this regard, let me know

My friend - you obviously are oblivious of facts and the law. Just because your case didn't fall under the radar doesn't mean you should go out and advice people to follow your way. Do you realize that if someone takes this info and files a complaint you can be deported and also your employer may have to close its shop. You cannot pay for any of the PERM/I-140 cost, that's the law..Period. Both you and your employer should be held accountable…..

Risk No. 1 --- Paying for the PERM process is illegal. If it get busted , both you and employer will suffer

This is correct

Risk No. 2 -- If you are applying EB2 with the same employer, you are essentially saying the EB3 job does not exist anymore. If CIS finds it (and there are enough people to report that), your EB3 will be gone.

Actually this is a very open to interpretation. Applying for a new Eb2 job does not mean the Eb3 job does not exist it just means that you are applying for the EB2 job. The company can still have the Eb3 job can can fill it later with another suitable candidate.

Let me explain it more, lets say I as a company has an open EB3 job and I sponsor some one in Eb3 for that job. Later I have two open jobs one Eb2 and one Eb3 and I am sponsoring someone for Eb2 now, while keeping some one on Eb3. If these are same candidates it only means that they are qualified for both and nothing more.

Actually this risk is the most feared and most baseless, not sure who came up with it but it is based on wrong interpretation.

Risk No. 3 -- You will be wasting time and effort. A 3 year Bachelor (with no added qualification) will never sail through EB2 .. particularly in today's world[/quote]

a bachelors is 4 years degree in US and nothing else. IF you have only a 3 year degree you will not qualify for Eb2 does not matter what job you have and how much experience you have. ( I work for a fortune 10 company and my lawyer was very clear on that front)

Partial credits, few courses without a degree/certificate does not count and you have to show a complete second degree to qualify.

Again as the thread starter said there is no risk in starting Eb2 except your laziness, if you have a 3 year degree getting a MS in next 1:1.5 years and going for Eb2 is way faster than any other thing.

I live in CA and have met both senators and congressman here; we are below illegals in totem pole of power and nothing will happen on regulation front. Actually Dianne Feinstein is fiercely against legals and only support illegal immigrants.

PS: All views above are mine and not a legal opinion

This is an intresting thread...

Let me put in my 2 lines...

I have an EB-3 March 2003 I-140 approved and I-485 not filed...

I initiated Eb-2 process and got ym I-140 approved, but my old PD was not amemded in my newly approved I-140... So there it stands...

Attorney is sure that I cannot apply for I-485 without the dates being current... meaning the date should be corrected....

I applied my I-140 in premium and my lawyer sent an email to TX processising center to update the dates as soon as they recieved the approval email...

My employer recieved courtesy notification but with the new dates... I am not sure even if TX processing center will entertain email communication after I-140 is approved.... MY logic is... if case closed.. communication closed.... But my Attorney is of the view that they will rectify and send the new I-140 soon... I did not want to go into a arguement with my attroney as they are whom my employer has employed... and also i am not sure if i am correct...

So here I stand even after having 2 I-140's approved and unable to file I-485...

I have come to the point that... I dont need a GC now... atleast EAD/AP so that i can travel incase of emergencies...

Having said all this, I did not involve in any mal-practises.. My employer has been fair and responsible towards my employment and welfare... My Attorney was correct to 100% in her line of work and my representation...

Give me your input guys... It will help me...

BR,
McLuvin
