Hello,

The original labor approval is lost by Attorney, how ever he has the copy of the approval. He says we can file I-140 with copy. Any one has had this situation ? What is your experience doing this ?


Thank You

I think you can apply for I-140 with a copy. As far as I know, you cannot use premium processing though.

OK. Thanks. Doyou know hwomuch this will delay the approval. I mean the fact that orginal is not sent and we have only a copy.

Check the I-140 tracker at ..

while you are there post your details to the priority retrogression tracker

Internally, NSC or TSC will get ask for confirmation of your labor from DOL. Most of the times there are no issues. The biggest factor to begin with is that instead of being able to do Premium processing and get your 140 in 15 days, now you are looking at a period of 4-8 months in normal processing and there is nothing you can do to speed up the process.

I am also in the same boat, 140 was filed in March 07, file at TSC. The attorney never received the original LCA. Could not do premium processing for 140.

NOW the big question is, can I apply 485 since my PD is current now?
