Default PERM Filing - wage issue

I am planning to file Labor in EB2. My Attorney sent job requirement which needs Master's + 1 year experience. But my current salary is almost 20k less than prevailing wage (level 4) for senior software engineer. But currently my salary equivalent to wage level 2.

I think i may get query at i140 , But Lawyer suggested Employer would need to be able to demonstrate their ability to pay the difference between actual salary and the prevailing wage at the time of the I-140 filing .

I am unable to get clear picture on wage levels. If i mention Level 2 , will this qualify for EB2?

Any suggestions on this.

Thx

What you mean by "Becareful..lot of screening is going on in PERM"?

You mean in ALL PERM or in EB2 PERM.

My lawyer is very scared to file my new case under EB2 PERM. His opinion is we may get an audit.

I have already EB3 PERM/I-140 approved. And now looking to file EB2 PERM with Bachelors+ 5 year Exp. (due to degree evaluation issues I am not able to file under Masters + 6 month exp).


Ok, I also have one Tradional LC (from Texas) and one RIR case (from MN) pending in BEC.

So the new case will be my 4th case.
