My attorney received the letter from BEC 2 weeks after I saw my case status as "certified". He told me earlier that the physical approval letter/notice is required to proceed with the next steps and he couldn't proceed with the paperwork only with the online status as certified.

I hope all you guys get your approval letters from the BECs SOON.

But my HR asked Dallas BPC officer and she said that cover letter was enough to file for I140and plus I485(concurrent)

The cover letter is part of the whole approval package.

Is it true...Please confirm.
No...I don't think the cover letter may not be good enought. Most lawyers won't even file.
I got the hard copy two days after I recieved the letter...so you should be getting it anytime now.
When was your labor certified online? If you don't receive it by end of July, go ahead and file with that letter and try.

But I am becoming very nervous after looking at a few responses here saying, it took over a month to get the hard copy by mail. Could anyone tell me the phone number for Dallas BEC to check on the status of the mail?

Thanks

Only attorney/HR/your manager can call this center. You cannot call. But you will not get much useful information from them. You may receive ur hard copy in approx 17 days.

All BEC fellows, prepare your 140 and 485 documents ready so that you will be able to file it anytime. Do not wait for labor approval. At the most you will lose 1K but if you could file, you will gain more.

Additionally, DOLís recent backlog elimination efforts, scheduled to be completed
by September 30, 2007, are predicted to add 70,000 or more approved labor certifications
yielding as many as 170,000 additional green card applications.

Mt labor was certified online on June28..The cover letter was faxed to my HR on friday..Does employer get any kind of copy by mail besides lawyer..Since my employer did not get it..The DBEC says that they have already mailed it..so I guess both employer and lawyer will be getting it by mail..although lawyer will get only copy of cover letter..Am I correct?

In my case, myself and my manager got the cover letter. Don't know what lawyer got. The letter I got says a cc was sent to manager and lawyer. When I asked lawyer, (s)he just said they will let me know as soon as they receive it. Two days later, they said they received the hard copy.

It depends on what were the addresses mentioned in ETA 750. In your case, if HR was mentioned instead of your manager then hr will get the cover letter.

Unhappy Soooo frustrating...

Hi All,
This is my first post as I just came across this site while googling after my GC process got stuck once again. The details of my case are below, basically they finally started moving on labor certification in Dec 2006. All steps were completed and it was sent for approval in April but no word since then. The lawyer says it is on someones desk who is on sabatical or on leave and does not know how long it will be. It makes it more frustrating as more than 5 people in my office started the advertising phase in Arpil and completed labor cert by June.
Has anyone else had a similar problem at this stage of the process. After 6 years I am still not through the first stage of labor cert and the patience is running low.

Jay

This is such injustice!! mightyatom, do consider attending the rally. Even if you don't benefit right away, others after you will. IV rally is the hope to fix this unjust system.

case will be closed if employer or attorney have not responded to the 45 days letter, this could be one of the reason. check with your employer.
