Topic: Employer refuses to provide Receipt Notice for I-140

To lucasb:

In your case, I am not sure if it's advisable to "fight" your employer (FOIA) who's doing what many employers do. My recommendation is to ensure your management full support. They are the ones who can ask on your behalf, exert pressure, keep you truly informed, and keep you employed.

Based on my experience, your case sounds pretty typical. Lawyers are paid by the company and are naturally on their side. Mine would not even mention the word "Premium" to my supervisor, who supported it once he heard it from me. Also depending on the inquiry, lawyers will not respond to you without talking to your employer first... they may be actually waiting on your employer/supervisor, or acting according to employer policy - and they are deadline operated, so won't do much until they absolutely have to. For what's worth, my company (Fortune 500) doesn't share I-140 file numbers either, and take several months to file because of red tape (nothing against the employee).

From a company/lawyer view, there is no need to rush your I-140 or do I-485 concurrent. You and I don't think that way, but the employer is sponsoring you to keep you after your L1 is expired. Again, management support is key.

Topic: RFE - Submit employment letters not in PERM?

Trackitt Gurus:

I got an I-140 audit questioning whether I have the required the years of experience in the industry (6 years as defined in the PERM). I have 10+ years.

I am addressing the RFE re: one employment letter. But I do have another letter from a previous employer (relevant experience/industry), but the company was not listed in the PERM because it happen so long ago, it is not mentioned in my Resume for years, and didn't think it was even necessary. From years of experience perspective, it could even "replace" the one that is being questioned.

Is it admissible? Should I include that additional employment letter in the RFE response?

Thank you !

Topic: RFE on my I-140

As in my audit, it seems your lawyers didn't double check for consistency, adding to the PERM a requirement in a field you don't "meet", at least at first glance. Which is not quite logical, since YOU are doing the work today...

In my case, the lawyers added as an alternate field Master in ENGINEERING (vs. just Master) for a 100% Marketing role (nobody in the entire mkt department has such a degree :)). So even though I have master in administration, we could not use it and now we are solely focusing on # of years of experience.

Continue working with them in demonstrating the match.... Good luck to both of us in the audit :)

Topic: i 94

I had a similar experience. I couldn't find my I 94 record because the Immigration officer made a typo in the entry (didn't know it at that time).

See CBP response: https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/169...

I called the CBP in San Francisco for more information, thinking I had to personally go to their office. To my surprise, the first person who answered was able to find my record and fixed the typo in a matter of seconds - with my name, date of entry, passport #. After a few minutes, I was able to retrieve my I-94 online.

Good luck.
