Question
Dear Ajay:
I am currently in the US on a J1 visa ,and I would like to legally migrate to the usa ?how can I apply for an immigrant visa ?
Thank you  

Answer
Dear Ameen,

Your generally need your employer to sign an application for Labor Certification, which is filed with the Dept. of Labor and eventually leads to a green-card. While the Labor Cert. process is pending, you need to maintain valid nonimmigrant status (such as J-1 or H-1B).
