J1 and green card

Postby md96 » Tue Dec 12, 2006 8:13 pm

I'm expecting my green card some time in next year and I am planning to go to the U.S by J1 visa for my residency training. Will I be able to get my green card while I'm on J1? what happens to the J1 condition, returning to home country after finishing J1? Do I still ahve to return to my home country or my status will be changed from J1 to premanent resident?

they wont give you J1 if you already filed for green card.
only H1 visa allows dual intentions, meaning you can apply for immigrant and non-immigrant status.
what's your green card status(eg I-130 pending)?
