Is it true that labor approval has a six months expiration date on it after which it'll expire. My lawyer has communicated this to me.

Thanks!

There was a rule change couple or three years ago that you need to apply I 140 within 6 months of your labour approval. So yes, if thats what your lawyer means by labour expiration.

* The expiration date of an approved labor certification depends on when it was approved.
* For labor certifications approved prior to July 16, 2007, the labor certification expires 180 days after July 16, 2007 – that is, January 12, 2008– unless filed prior to its expiration with the Department of Homeland Security in support of a Form I-140 immigrant petition for alien worker.
* Labor certifications approved on or after July 16, 2007, will expire 180 days from their date of issue, unless filed prior to expiration with the Department of Homeland Security in support of a Form I-140 immigrant petition.
