Immigration Issues/from H1B to a Green Card

Question
Is there a way to apply for a Green Card directly from H1B or H1B has to be transfered to something else first?
Thank You,
Natalija Jovanovic

Answer
Nataly,
You can be on H1 status and also have a pending adjustment of status application.  Prior to this you have to obtain either a PERM approval or if eligible you can overcome the labor certification process by other means.
Good Luck,
