You might find this link interesting https://www.hooyou.com/news/news030810wom.html
I remember reading this earlier part of the year, but it took me a while to search for this recommendation. If your attempts to get traction in spite of multiple Congressional inquires are not fruitful, then this could be a shot. It's unfortunate that even the revised I-485 application, doesn't have a field to designation "Cross-Chargeability". Pls keep us posted.

Hi there,
Out of curiousity, did you and your spouse not apply together to benefit from utilizing the CC rule?
Also did your Attorney not provide covering letters that your petition needs to be covered as a case of CC and be charged to Taiwan?

Topic: When exactly is priority date?

First assumption on PD is correct, but it's I-485 that you cannot submit without your Priority Date (PD) being current.
You can submit I-140 irrespective of your PD.

The priority date is the date on which the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) receives ETA Form 9089 (PERM), please see reference here https://www.hooyou.com/lc/perm_priorit...

Topic: When exactly is priority date?

That's a confusing statement. May be you wanted to state when "PERM is submitted" is counted as the Priority Date as opposed to when I-140 is submitted?
If you fall under the EB3, you'll need to go through the Stage 1 (PERM) process and the date the PERM is electronically received by DOL is your Priority date.

What is the response from your employer when you specifically ask to provide you the "receipt number"?

Topic: Recruitment period for EB-2


Does the job description/qualifications need to be exactly the same as what was on the prevailing wage determination for my position?
> This should be the same and shouldn't change during the whole process. Keep in mind this posting is for a "future" position.


Just to confirm with you, with the ad posted on SWA, the rest of the recruitment methods can be done all at the same time and following that is a 30-day waiting period, and finally the PERM can be officially filed? I would imagine PERM can be filed at the end of 60 days as well, and definitely not 120 days.
> That's correct, you can do these in parallel. You would really need to have aggressive f/u with both HR & Attorney. Otherwise, these dates will slip and miss the timelines.


Thanks for providing information on how the whole recruitment process can be even shortened, unfortunately I do not believe my attorney will opt to do this. However, I would like to know whether the PERM can be drafted before the recruitment is completed?
> Your Attorney can initiate the electronic "draft" process of the ETA form 9089, but you cannot submit it without the PWD and the completion of the recruitment process.

Topic: Recruitment period for EB-2

Where was your ad posted? I'm guessing this is with the SWA (State Workforce Agency). If yes and since you have already received the PWD and the recruitment process has already begun, I don't believe it should take you another 4 months from mid-July.

Your employer has to go through 3 mandatory and 3 additional recruitment activities http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employer... & https://www.hooyou.com/lc/perm_ad&re.html Since the SWA AD has the mandatory requirement of 30 days posting, I would suspect that your employer might have started with that. You might want to select the SWA for your State https://us.jobs/state-workforce-agencies.asp and keyword search with your employer name.The other mandatory ads can be run in parallel.
Following this there's a 30-days waiting period to allow for more candidate to apply and for the applicants to be interviewed.
If your Lawyer and HR Dept. are at lockstep all the way, then you should be able to file your PERM application (ETA Form 9089) at the end of the 60 days (beginning of the 3rd month).

Interestingly you can in parallel go through the Recruitment process during the time PWR is being "filed" with DOL. Check the last question on page 13-https://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta.gov/pdf/perm... Also refer - http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employer...
During the time the PWR is filed, all the mandatory required ADs can be placed in different media but after the PWD is received, there should be at least one more mandatory recruitment ad. This could potentially be the one with the shortest recruitment ad (In-house posting/Notice of Filing) for 10 consecutive "business" days, followed by a wait for another 30 "calendar" days to allow candidates to respond (waiting/cooling-off period). Taking this approach in parallel would possibly shorten this recruitment cycle.

Previously PERM with PD 5/4, 5/11 certified and now PERM with PD 5/3 and 5/30 is certified.

The only thing that is predictable about DOL is their unpredictability.
They must be using an internal lottery process! LOLs :-)

Topic: Perm and GC as a future employee

The whole process of GC filing is for a future position (even if you current employer were to initiate GC). So from that perspective, you should be legally covered. However, take a hard look at the overall and financial background of the organization that you're going to join and the number of GC they've filed in the past.

1. Is this a risky option wrt audits/RFEs issued during the PERM process .
> Audits are random. So it is the same risk that you have joining any organization. If the organization that you join has all the criteria to support your GC filing then the chances of the RFEs are comparatively fewer.

2. Assuming PERM goes through without any issues, can the I-140 be initiated without my joining the future employer. If so, would there be tighter scrutiny in case of such future employment and especially under premium processing of I-140?
> As far as I know, I-140 can be initiated without joining your future employer.
While there are claims the premium processing can lead to higher probability to I-140 RFE, there are many applicants who have successfully got I-140 approval without any RFE via premium processing.

3. Are we required to submit current paystubs/W2's while applying for PERM/I-140? If so, is there a provision under the "future employment" category to now provide these for the "future employer" since I would not have joined them at the time (PERM filing or I-140 filing)
> Current paystubs and W2's are required from your existing employer

4. On a scale of 1-10 (low-high), what are the odds of such a case being audited/RFE'd?
> There is no way to predict if your case could be audited. This is a random selection.

5. Any personal experience with going this route and any red flags that I should watch out for?
> Verify background of the employer before initiating process. Talk to the current employees and take feedback on their experiences. GC filing is a very long cumbersome process, so employer support is integral. Be selective on who you join.

Topic: Apply for premium or not

Thank you for taking time to analyze and provide these details. This is very informative!

I had a f/u question...If the PD is current, doesn't it still make sense to premium process I-140 even when the application was concurrently (I-140& I-485) filed?

The reason why I ask is that even if you file concurrently, I-485 will only be processed after I-140 has been approved. Sadly, the "normal" processing time for I-140 runs into couple of months. So "premium" processing will help expedite I-140 processing and therefore indirectly speed up I-485 stage.

I wanted to know if there was a different perspective or a downside with this approach.
