    From memory you need to be there for 12 months before they will start the process but yes all family members can be on the application.

      Starting the process on asap was important for me, so I mentioned this to my recruiter even before I had an offer. She asked me to start the process on go/iwantagreencard as soon as I start

      I started on the second week and got my GC 7 months after moving to the US.

      How long did it take your spouse to get an EAD?

      Perm in process.
      You can start asap after joining, there's a form you fill out and manager confirms job requirements. That's it, then it's between you and lawyers.

      That’s good to know.
      I am actually more interested if this is a easy way to score an EAD for the wifey.
      She’s not really feeling like being a housewife

      After your I140 is approved and you are on h1b, yes.
      Takes 6 months or so to get there.

      Just hope h4 ead doesn't go away by then.😜

      Not on H1B actually... I am on an O-1.
      Does that make a difference?

    Do it right away, or you will regret waiting I guarantee you. It takes forever.

    Related question how does eb2 vs eb3 work at Google? Does manager have full control over the job description?
