Principle Green Card Applicant to File Without Dependents

I’m ready to have you handle my green card case through both EB1 and NIW. I do not want to file the green cards petition for my wife and daughters at this time due to our financial situation. Is it Ok if I have my case approved first then file for them? Will they still be able to benefit from my approval? Thanks.

While it is possible under immigration law to do what you are requesting, it can be dangerous if not timed perfectly. I understand that an additional $3,030 in filing fees is a lot of money but I would recommend you either 1. File your EB1 and NIW first without any green card application or 2. Borrowing the money or wait until you’ve saved sufficient funds and then file for everyone simultaneously.
