17 Jan Getson & Schatz, P.C. Client Receives Green Card Upon Priority Date Becoming Current
Our law firm had filed an EB-3 Labor Certification for a client. The labor certification was approved, the I-140 Petition was approved and the client remained with the same employer that filed the labor certification application. The client was able to extend H-1B status past the 6 year maximum in 3 year increments while waiting for the priority date to become current. The priority date became current in January 2011 and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, which actively monitors priority dates, approved the green card application for our client and the derivative beneficiaries. While immigration waiting times can be long and the wait can be frustrating, all priority dates are eventually reached.
