Audit cases are getting more focus in the last few days and I see lot of approvals for June 2010 filers who got the audit. This is as per the cases on the other tracker website.

Manijos, did you file for PERM 365 days before the 6 years on H1B ended? If so, you don't need to wait for 140. Based on pending PERM, you can keep getting 1 year H1b extensions.

Been there. Done that.

Mine is a tragic case, I had filed my first PERM in 2008 and it was denied in 2010 and went in to appeal in BALCA where it was denied in 2011. I was able to get H1 extn after 6th year based on my earlier PERM. Now I am in 8th year and have re-filed PERM in Dec 2011.
That is the reason I need to get my I140 approved to file for H1 extn.

this is crazy but DOL has released the PERM factsheet as of 2/15/2012 and they are still reviewing October 2011 cases.the denial rate has gone up to 20% and approval rate is about 74.5 %. Also looks like they are focusing more on audit and appeal cases then standard cases. really frustrating.
