Hi:

I was working for Company A from 2000 to 2004. Company A applied for my GC in 2002. However, the company was not doing well until I left it. It was not paying me the salary which came out in PW. Company A continued with my GC processing and I filed for I140 and 485 last year in June. Now received the following RFE for I140:

Please submit documentary evidence that you, the petitioning employer, have the financial
ability to pay the wage/salary you offered the beneficiary. This evidence must show that you
have this financial capability on the date you fied the ETA with the Department of Labor and
cover up until the visa is issued. The petitioner may submit evidence that their net income is
equal to or greater than the proffered wage, evidence that the petitioner's net current assets
are equal to or greater than the proffered wage, or evidence that the petitioner not only is
employing the beneficiary but also has paid or is currently paying the proffered wage. The
service wil also consider copies of audited annual reports of the employer, or copies of
audited financial statements of the employer. Evidence is needed for 2002-2003.

Does anyone have some idea how to get the audited financial statements or audited annual reports?. I know that the company never had any audited reports. I had submitted the bank statements of the company and the tax returns with my I140. However, it seems that they want the audited reports. The company was not doing well in 2002/2003. However, it is doing well now. So any input will be highly appreciated.

sorry to burst the bubble..this is v hard. i'd a friend worked for a small company and was denied 140. if you filed for 10-15 ppl company chances are u will face the prob.

i'd suggest u file a fresh labor. uscis is v strict these days and will scrutinize.
well its all these body shop companies who have created this mess.

I got RFE on 140 asking

all my expereince letter proir to 2002 ( I came US in 1999) and By the time I worked with two companys.

Now I got one company exp letter and other one closed and I couldn't able to get the letter. as per sources and attorney advice I am submitting coleague affidavit.

and also they asked me all w2's where I worked only few months in 2004 and w2 amount is not that great.

I am still fearing how do USCIS take in to consideration when they finalise the case.

Do you think all these are substantiate my case , or they may come with another RFE or denial..

Please advise me what I want to do, I haven't submitt my case yet.

Thanks

I do not think, number of employees matter. I work for a desi company and it has just 2 employees. Labor was breeze and 140 got approved in 4 weeks. Never got any RFE. However, I was in EB-3 despite having 4 years bachelor's degree and 5+ years of experience.

What EndlessWait meant was, more the number of employees in a small company, the chances of RFE with ability to pay will be higher...

You should be okay on the exp letters, but it will be your 2004 W2 that may turn out to be an issue.

If you have been without pay from longer than 6 months in 2004, then you have a serious status issue and you will need to check with a good attorney to handle that..

My recommendation is to get a good immi attorney who has handled these kinds of cases before and have them do your paperwork....

Overall true, just one clarification... More the number of employees that have applied for a GC, chances of RFE are higher.

Am I correct?
