Default PERM applicants Atlanta Center

I filed my LC in May 2007 EB2 and received audit letter and replied in October. Since then there's no response. Its over 8 months. I understand this is common at the moment. PERM is supposed to be 3 months.

I'm wondering whether there's other member here who are in the same situation?

Are you with a desi consultant? they infact really play foul with labor.
Infact if DOL audits , 90% of Desi Consultants would have done some blunder.
Normally it should be 3-5 months , i suppose.

This is my personal view, and this may be wrong

I had my labor filed in June 2007 and recieved audit letter in October. I asked my lawyer to contact DOL at the end of December 2007. Instead of receiving any reply, we received approval on January 4, 2008. Why don't you ask your lawyer to contact DOL?

Do you know what method your lawyer used to contact DOL?

My lawyer told me they sent several emails to DOL but the reply he receive is the standard email everytime. He's saying all the EB2s with master degree are being audited and they have about 11 cases in the smae situation as mine.

My case is pretty close to your's. My employer filed for my LC in May 2007 in EB2 at Atlanta Processing center, received an audit in October 2nd week and replied back to their requested additional info with in less then 2 weeks (end of Oct 07) and no news as of today....

Since its PERM process and I don't have access to check status on my A# case number, and as per my recent inquiry with my company attorney here is what I was told when they contacted this processing center: they are working on FIFO ...

Yes, it is frustrating to waiting for so long and no word and no progress.

I suspect since majority of processing centers are already back logged with applied I-140 (Eb2/EB3) and I feel these PERM processing centers are deliberately delaying our cases and may be they are waiting until applied 140's que clears up!!

My lawyer contacted DOL though email. There is no definitive proof if DOL approved the case because my lawyer sent an email. All I know is that my lawyer sends an email on Friday and we get approval by following Wednesday. The whole thing could also be a coincidence.

Thanks, I contacted my attorney and he said he'll be sending another email to DOL over the weekend but not to expect anything other than a standard reply.

I guess not many in this forum are effected since you're the only one replying. I'm a little worried that after many months if they deny then I'm back to zero.

Kodi, please let me know if your attorney receives any reply from DOL.

Default In the same boat

PERM filed on Aug 8, 2007 in Atlanta, audit received in Oct 15 and responded Oct 25. No news till now. My lawyer says they are seeing audits for lots of cases and that seems to be slowing things down. It doesn't help that Chicago approves cases in 3 days.

My Company filed PERM at the end of October/07 and got an audit for business necessity by Jan 13/08. They are preparing the reply.
Lawyer told me that around 44% of the cases in Atlanta are being audited...

Who knows if that is true
