18 Mar I-140 Petition Approved For EB-2 Biostatistician
Our client came to us with an approved EB-2 PERM labor certification filed for a biostatistician with job requirements of a Master’s Degree in statistics or bio-statistics plus 3 years experience as a programmer, analyst or junior biostatistician and requested that our firm file the I-140 Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker on his behalf. Our client came to us because his prior attorney had failed to obtain a degree equivalency evaluation on his behalf or the required work experience letter prior to filing the PERM case. It is always prudent to obtain such documentation prior to filing the PERM case as when filing the I-140 Petition it is necessary to demonstrate that the foreign national meets the requirements for the position set forth in the PERM labor certification. In addition to proving the qualifications of the foreign national, it is necessary to prove the company has the ability to pay the wage. We guided our client on obtaining the appropriate degree equivalency evaluation, work experience letter and proof of the Company’s ability to pay the wage and filed an I-140 Immigrant Petition with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) which was approved.
