Consultate for CP will be Mumbai, India.

I have a couple of questions pertaining to GC.

My LC is approved 2 days back (Filed - May 17, Approved - May 25) I didnt know this happens so fast. We have not yet received the cetitified documents from the department so I dont know whether its EB2 or EB3.

My lawyer says it is upto the department to decide whether my case comes under EB2 or EB3? Is this right?

Now we plan to file the I-140 in June 07. Should I go for premium processing right from the first time? My company is ready to do this. But someone said on one of these websites that this creates a suspicion in the minds of the department. I dont know how true this is?

I am thinking to opt for Consular Processing. What do you recommend on this?

I have read that we can also file I-140/485 concurrently. What does that mean? I was under the impression that first I-140 needs to be approved and only then we can file the other papers.

I read in one of the posts that the 485 and EAD were approved becore I-140. How is that possible?

Now the main thing that is bothering me is the financial situation of the company. They have good money and they can afford to pay me well, but the old accountant messed up big time and filed all wrong taxes and di not maintain proper records etc. So on papers its not such a great company, but they have money for sure. How can this be a hurdle?

All your help will be highly appreciated.

Thank You.

First things first:

I485 can only be filed if a visa number is available. what is the Priority date on ur lc and what is the filing category?

Same applies for CP - You cannot go for consular processing unless ur PD is current. You can apply for i140 anytime, regular or premium - but 485/ead cannot be filed along with it unless u have a visa number.

For Indian nationals the current visa availability is for priority dates of apr 04 for eb2 and jun 03 for eb3.

Default Urgent Question: I-140--> little short experience in 1 skill out of 7

My approved PERM Labor had requirements like: MS + 3 years experience in SQL Server Administration, C/C++, Visual Basic, Java, C#, HTML, and ASP.

I have a total of 13 years experience after BS degree (8 years after MS degree). Out of this 13 years, last 3 years is with my current employer. If I do not count any experience from current employer on that language, I have little short experience in one programming language C# (item no 5 below). All other skills are more than that needed.

My employer is a State University and I got my labor approved in 10 days. My Lawyer says, my I-140 may be in trouble as one of the programming language (C#) experience is less than 3 years. Is it true? If so, please advice me what I can do for it.

A. Following is my skill wise expreience breakup (not counting last 3 years)
================================================== =====

1. SQL Server : 5 years 4 month
2. C++ : 7 years
3. VIsual Basic : 5 years 4 month
4. Java : 5 years 4 month
5. C# : 2 years
6. HTML : 5 years 4 month
6. ASP : 5 years 4 month


B. Following is my skill wise expreience breakup (including last 3 years exp):
================================================== ======

1. SQL Server : 8 years 4 month
2. C++ : 10 years
3. VIsual Basic : 8 years 4 month
4. Java : 8 years 4 month
5. C# : 5 years
6. HTML : 8 years 4 month
6. ASP : 8 years 4 month

Thanks for your time for reading this.

Default 140 PP - 60 days needed after RFE is answered?

My Company applied for 140 in Premium Processing mode and I got an RFE in a week for Company's ability to Pay. Attorney responded back with necessary documentation and status reflects that USCIS recieved the same...

In the USCIS status - It shows that a decision would be made in 60 days...Mine is a Premium process & USCIS should take a decision in 15 days..is n't it?? Its already 10 Business days in between and my file was not even updated.....

Do you think this 60 days part of the message is true or just a mistake????

As per the PP rules, USCIS should make a decision within 15 days after receiving RFE response.

Sending the same stuff fax by 12000 desis will overload senators faxes and might irk them, the effort should include this but more constructive approaches like lobbying may work better.

I have done my part....

Default Don't worry

If it's possible for you to get a letter from your previous employer stating your c# experience, you would be fine. If that's not possible, you can get it from your former colleagues (that colleague doesn't have to be employed by the same previous employer, he has to attach an affidavite). Good luck to you.

Default But C# is new!

Explain to your lawyer that C# is a new programming language and has not been around long enough for you to have more than the years of experience that you currently have. I think your 140 is approveable.

I don't think it should matter if you have little less experience in C.. But I am not lawyer..

If you have a min could you send web-fax and also invite at least one of your friend to join IV...

I am sure somebody will give their thoughts on this soon.
