View Full Version : Convert employment-based petition to marriage-based petition?

06-07-2010, 05:11 PM
I initiated my employer-based petition back in 2006, and have since gone through biometrics and the medical check up. I believe I am now just stuck at the last stage of the petition, i.e. waiting for the backlog to clear.

I recently got married to a US citizen -- I understand that I am free to file a separate marriage-based petition, but at the same time I have heard that it might be possible to 'transfer' my current employment-based petition into a marriage-based petition (so that I do not have to go through certain steps again, such as the medical check-up, etc.). Is this true, and if so, what are the steps involved?

Thanks in advance!

That kind of cross category porting is not allowed.

Thanks -- I don't mean to question your knowledge or experience, but I did find some information that points to some people having some success in interfiling from EB to FB.

Am I missing something?
