In order for us to give you the best opinion, it is important that you provide us the best background information regarding your case.  Generally, there are two types of I-140 or immigrant petitions:

1. Immigrant petition with an approved "alien labor certification" (now commonly referred to as "PERM") and in such a case, the I-140 must be accompanied by a certified PERM from the Department of Labor (DOL) first.

2. Immigrant petition without PERM or direct I-140 either because PERM requirement is statutorily exempt (such as "alien of extraordinary ability" or "ourstanding professor/advanced researcher" or "multinational business executives" or the required is waived in "national interest" (NIW).  In such a situation, an I-140 can be filed without the need of an approved or certified PERM.

Please include a detailed description of your case and if you have a pending case with a receipt number please also provide it.  If you have a challenge from the USCIS either in form of a "Request for Evidence" (RFE) or "Intent to Deny" (ITD) or "Intent to Revoke" (ITR), please provide us either a copy of that challenge through email or fax (972-994-0088) so that we have a better understanding of the problems at issue.
