Make sense. Thanks. We are kinda in same boat. Though, My journey was not as easy as yours. I am glad you didn't have to go through all these. I see you are helping quite a few people here. I am one of the unlucky person from october PERM filing whose PERM got stuck for a quite while without even audit.
I think you are waiting LCA to be approved and I am waiting for hard copy of the I-140 approval at this time. I think they have filed my H1 today itself (efile) and will send documents once they receive the I-140 approval. It is very weired my attorneys have sent them FedEx return envelope when they intially filed I-140 petition in PP but the envelop has not been tendered till now. we received my I-140 email approval yesterday around noon.
I hope you got the I140 hard copy.. everyone waits in some queue or the other in this system. :-) I waited in the PWD queue for 170 days. So if I had got my PWD in June or July, my PD could have been July or Aug instead of December.. how even one single day can have an impact on lives!
My PWD determined in 30 days but entire recruitment process still took 6 months(damn.. state job bank!!!!) to complete. As you already know, Perm process also took 6 months. We have received the hard copy of I-140 on Monday but I think the attorneys have used email I-140 approval notice in my H1b extension. We have asked consular processing for this H-1B petition.
I agreed with you that everyone will have to wait eventually in some kind of queue in this system. BTW, Good luck to you for your LCA and next H1 petition!
Marantha, I have my perm approved. ( I have 4 years bachelors + 12 years exp) Please find below the details from PERM and kindly let me know if this qualifies for EB2. Thanks in Advance.
4 Education: minimum level required: Bachelors 4-A. If Other is indicated in question 4, specify the education required: 4-B. Major field of study Engineering any, Computer Science, Technology or related 5. Is training required in the job opportunity? No 6. Is experience in the job offered required for the job? Yes 6 - A. If Yes, number of months experience required: 60 7. Is there an alternate field of study that is acceptable? No 8. Is there an alternate combination of education and experience that is acceptable? No
9. Is a foreign educational equivalent acceptable? Yes 10.Is experience in an alternate occupation acceptable? Yes 10-A. If Yes, number of months experience in alternate occupation required: 60
14.Specific skills or other requirements - If submitting by mail, add attachment if necessary. Skills description must begin in this space
Any suitable combination of education, training or experience is acceptable. Travel to unanticipated client/job sites and or relocate throughout the U.S.
This looks good for EB2 except for the line "Any suitable combination of education, training or experience is acceptable." The Kellog language is needed only if your qualification do not meet the primary requirements, i.e. primary requirements is Masters and alternate is BS + 5 and you qualify based on the alternate requirements. But I think it should not cause a problem because H8 is clearly stating that alternate combinations are not acceptable. So just ensure that the employer letter that is submitted along with your I140 contains clear requirements as US BS or foreign equivalent + 5 years and how you qualify. Good luck!
