I-140/I-485 Approved Following PERM Labor Certification for University Professor
Following approval of a PERM Labor Certification on behalf of a University Professor in the EB-2 Advanced Degree Category, we filed an I-140 Immigrant Petition on behalf of the Professor. The Professor, who is not Indian or Chinese and therefore not subject to any visa backlog, simultaneously filed an I-485 Application for Adjustment of Status. With the I-140 Petition filed by the University our law firm included evidence of the University’s ability to pay the wage set forth in the PERM labor certification and evidence that the Professor met the minimum requirements for the position as set forth in the PERM labor certification. Both the I-140 Petition and I-485 Application were simultaneously approved approximately 3 months after filing.
