Thumbs up I-140 Approved EB3 NSC 540 days

My Friends,

I just wanted to share my good news with all of you on the cusp of a New Year. I am ecstatic to announce that my 140 got approved after a nerve wracking 17 months.

I have been rewarded with this blessing at the end of an absolutely horrendous year, to say the least. It started with being on bench for 5 months, to a 2-month contract in another city on H1-B through 3 layers, working hard as a mule whilst at the same time thinking positive, praying and believing in myself. Then extending contract by 3 months, abandoning H1B to use EAD due to ridiculous treatment by my H1 employer of 8 yrs. (it was the proverbial last straw on the back). Finally after this effort, contract extended through 12/31/09 culminating just yesterday by the approval of my 140!! "Hoped for the Best but prepared for the Worst"!

It came at a moment when I was almost ready to give in, throw up my hands in despair and start the tedious process all over again. But I always believed there was a silver lining in the clouds for me and it has just now opened up.

I want to thank everybody for reading and providing a fellow immigrant support and answers throughout this arduous journey. As a token of my appreciation for IV, I will contribute $140 towards our campaigns for next year.

And lastly - Wish You a Happy & Prosperous 2009!! Be safe everybody.

Default Happy for you

Some of us went through the backlog centres of labor that took 24+ months. So we all understand the trauma associated with the wait.

congratulations after all the hardships you had to wait for. Me too had to wait 4 years (48 months) just for my labor to be approved Hopefully 2009 should really be a Happy New Year if we all work hard together!
