Online case status for forms filed with USCIS are different. You can check those if you know the receipt number. The PERM system is a DOL system and only employers have access to the system. The employer even have to create a sub-account for the lawyer to access the system.

Default It seems there no use.

Now EB2 is also stucked at2003 Jan.
It took 11 months to move 8 days. When Eb3 get into retrogressionevery one started filing in EB2. I think if nothing comes relief like SKIL \ CIR better to stay wit EB3 - Mar 2004.


I think with in one year EB2 and EB3 wil get same priority dates.

It is upto you.

Should I wait for the eb3 non rir to get approved or can I go ahead and file the EB2 in PERM from the same employer for a different job opportunity while eb3-non-rir is pending ?


thanks in advance,

Default Is it a good idea to convert traditional LC to PERM?

Hi,

I have an California EB2 RIR LC app pending with backlog center with PD of March 2005. My 6 years of H1B are over and am an Indian citizen.
Is it a good idea to convert this application to PERM - my company lawyers say that there is a risk in that if the application is rejected, there is no back-up + it can take upto 8 months to process under PERM due to the conversion.

Best Wishes
zoozee

It is very true that it might take a long time for the conversion cases to get approved. Mine took 6 months with audit. Your PERM application must be identical (not similar, it should be 100% identical) to your RIR case. They will take months to pull your RIR out from the BEC and compare it with the new PERM and if 100% identical they will approve. It is possible. It can be done. I got mine done. It will take time. It is risky especially when your 6 year limit is over. There are ways to stay in status even if it gets rejected. But are you willing to take the risk?

Default PERM filing while H1B transfer is pending

Guys,
My H1B transfer is pending at California Srvice Centre since Sep 26, 2006 and my current employer has completed the green card process prior to file PERM application. Is it possible to file PERM application while H1B Transfer is pending?
Any advise?
Thanks

Default PERM processing time

Does anyone know what the average time to approve a PERM application is around the Philadelphia area? This is an EB3 application.

Thanks
