Question
Hi, I am applying a green card, and I have Hapetitis B.  Does
having Hapetitis B prevent me from getting Green Card?  What is
a normal time-table for apply green card through PERM?  Thank
you.

Answer
If you are not legal in the country now and had nothing pending with Immgration before 4/30/01 you are nto eligible to get a green card in the United States unless you came in legally and marry an American.

If you are legal in the country, a prm filing green card  will take about 5 years for the whole process - the Perm part  and I-140 part are quick but the I-485 filing takes a while.

Regards,

Robert
