My wife needs to apply for H4 EAD and my green card processing is yet to start. Usually how long does it take to reach the I-140 stage in this process?

      How about with premium processing?

    My perm was filed in May. Got my i140 approved in premium in first week of September. So ~4 months.

    Mine was pretty much the quickest it could be as I went through shared recruitment for perm. I140 took 3 to get approved once the premium processing petition was received by USCIS.

    Edit: all in all 6 months if you count the start of the process internally at Amazon.

  • Currrently perm is taking just 3-4 months and prevailing wage determination which is the first step is taking 4-5 months. You should be able to get i-140 with premium processing in 1 year

    Premium is only available for I140, and the PERM will take a long time, usually

    No premium processing is applicable.
