I been in USA over 17 yrs and was seperated by ex husband, who never sponcered me and lied and committed bigamy marrying to another American woman. Being isolated by community as the way Asian community is and culture is back home, I didn't have any idea about VAWA for self petetion to file as battered abused woman. And I found out it was too late as there is statue of limitation of two yrs.
        I allpied for Amnesty 1981 program which was extended until 2003 July as no one can file for green card if person is not sure to ge tgreen card and I filed under Laber certification and VAWA in 2000 in Chicago. As my immigration was money hungry and wanted every two weeks $700 money and I was not aware of his reputation, I late him file fo rmotion to withdraw and he did and at present I am not sure of my Labor certification but my VAWA is declined because of lact of proof and I do have proof bu ttim elimot is a problem. But as I had a real hard ship all those yrs in USA and still I do have many issues specailly can't extend driver licence because of immigraion status as REAL ID ACT was passed by congress last yr and it is very hard to get driver licence and not be able to drive a car and can't work, I feel handicap and not worth living this life as after 17 yrs struggle, bigamist was not punished by law, didn't get immigration and property share in divorce as he did fraud transffering all of hi sproperty on his family name and now driver licence issue and not having family and relatives and friends and I been judged by every one I talked to and same time appling for Indian Passport in 2000 as lost passport paying $200 and giving me different ezcuses to issue me my passport, is hell of a problem in life non stop, as atlist I can get my passport, I can try getting my driver licence. And if soemone have any idea how and what is the best way to apply for my immigraion papers as I don;t have any pationce being here over 17 yrs and my parents passes away three yrs back an dnot seeing them that long and passesed away and being home sick and no one can come visit me as it is very hard form India to get visa is not a joke. I am home sick, can't work, can't drive, been judged when I talked to whoever and getting in a situation I will loose my place as I can' tafford not having a job because of driver licence. If anyone have any suggestion I will really appriciete that.

I filed with the help of my lawyer and my company, but I did a lot of the work. My Lawyer is in New Haven, CT. I live and work in Boston. I am an Architectural model maker with a Batchelor of art in Model Design from the Uni of Hertfordshire in England. The applications for both H1Bs and the Labor cert list me as a "designer". I work for a 25-30 person architectural firm in DT Boston. I am English but not by Birth. I was born in Mexico City but my parents are English. When my paperwork comes back from the USCIS they seem to list me as Mexican but I do all my paperwork through Belfast, Northern Ireland. Its sooo much quieter than the masses in London and Belfast is in the UK so they will do my British citizen paperwork. Thats about it. Again I file labor cert April 28th 04, 45day letter June 2nd 06, final approval 28th Nov06

So I finally got my Labor certification approved. Yeeeaahhhhhh. And there I was thinking it might never happen ;-).
Originally filed April 28th 2004
Got the 45 day letter the same day I got my last visa extension papers came through, June 2nd 2006. Suspicious?
Final approval came November 28th 2006. Along with a tax bill for underpaying.....nice

If your still in the system and you haven't hear much, or anything, have hope. I had given up most of mine to be honest but eventually it can. Thank god! Certainly wasn't helped by the Gov... shhhh ;-)
Anyway onwards and upwards now. Next stop Green card phase 1. The I-140 and another $1500. :-( Man they make you wait for ages, and then there's just another bill. Its not like we're not paying for this and it sure seems to be keeping a whole bunch of Americans employed doing my paperwork.

Good Luck to everyone else in da system.... Keep ya chin up. Still upper lip and all that.
Happy New Year! Hope 2007 is your year.

I Applied for Labor certification @ chicago regional centre in Nov 2004. Then received the 45 day letter and responded back. Labor petition sent to Dallas back log centre in Feb 05. Approval notice received on 4/14/06.
I heard that now they are trying to speed up the process and I sincerely hope that is true!

Hi Everyone:

Just to share my experience / problem:

I got my Labor approved in SEP 05 for and Accountant with Systems Skill Set and for the next stage the I-140, my lawyer rightfully adviced that on my current salary is much lower that was required at the time as prevailing wage. Now, my sponsoring company's Tax returns also show inadequate Funds for those years to support my application (salary).

Has anyone survived this situation and if so how?

Pls write to me - much obliged.

Sai ram,

Sunil

Ps - if anyone can help take over my approved labor Cert., with me, that would help.

My company send the Labor Certification Dec 2005 using Rapid recruitment. Until now we don't know anything, we haven't received the "45 letter"

This country don't make easy for the people who want's to do the rigth way... That's one of the reason for over 12.000.000 with not legal status...
