You cannot get an accurate answer to this question. You need to provide facts and details to an immigration attorney who can ask you the questions that need to be answered before providing any advice. Feel free to call my office and we can certainly discuss your options.

Re: Green Card Question

What generally happens is if you no longer have a petitioner (the employer), then the petition will not be approved; this is presuming that the labor certification has already been approved. It is not possible to tell you all the possibilities because we need to know whether or not the employer has an approved labor certification for you already, or whether the labor certification is still pending. If it is still pending, and you get laid off, if the layoff is for a good reason (for example, the economy), the job is no longer available for you. In short, the labor certification is only an offer for a job. Now, if the labor certification has been approved and your employer has filed an I-140 on your behalf, and now can no longer afford to keep you, then the petition is dead. Have you received any employment authorization card? Maybe you can find another sponsor? Any questions, call my office. Good luck to you.

It depends on where you are in the GC process.

I suggest you speak with an immigration attorney.
