Please help ‘initial review’
A friend of mine has an update online status. 17 months ago that saysh

‘Case approval was certified by USCIS.

‘We certified the approval of your form I-360, petition for amerasian widow(er) or special immigrant. And send it to the appropriate appellate office.

That office will send you a final decision.

(Does this mean an approval of the case)


She filled I485, I360 and 765 all together. Has 3 prima factia and work and travel as well sending now for 3th renewal. (Filled everything in summer 2019)

Thank you in advance

Question regarding refilling of H1, PERM and I40
We are planing to change the state within same company but with reduce salary and same position with different team and location. Will it affect on h1b, PERM and 1-40 file ? Do I need to redo everything again ?
If I want to maintain it then can I just file addendum?
Few months back I applied for EAD in EB3 category... does the move impact that too? Has anyone moved and would like to share their experience or give suggestions in terms of impact of salary change on immigration? TIA

Hi, I recently joined full-time with fortune 500 payroll company headquarter in New York. My H1b is approved and now i'm filing for my GC starting with PERM application. I am supposed to work at my office location in Virginia as per my H1b petition, but i work mostly from home in different state(TX). Now legally i'm not supposed to work more than one day per week as per my company policy. But due to nature of work and since i'm on good terms with my manager, He doesn't care where i work from.

So when filing the PERM i initially given work location Virginia, and my home address in TX(Own house). But later i realized this may be an issue since work and home location are totally in different states. And i can't add my home address as secondary work location as per company Immigration team since they assume i only work from home on sporadic basis. But i work from home most of the time and travel to work once in 3 months.

So since i can't use home address as secondary work location, i need to use local Virginia address(Friends home) for home address in PERM application. But my question is if there is a SITE VISIT from USCIS and i'm working from home that day what kind of trouble will be in? What are my options then?

I was told the USCIS doesn't give prior notice all the time for site visits. If there's a notice then i will make sure to be in office. Please let me know for any suggestions on how i can proceed further and what happens if i miss any SITE visit verification.

Prevailing wage not shared by the Employer

My company is sponsoring the Green Card. The Perm is approved, as well as the I-140. My priority date is current, so my company submitted the I-485 (Adjustment of Status) already. I went for the biometrics back in June. Hopefully I will get my Green Card soon.

The reason I am posting this message is because my company is refusing on sharing the prevailing wage with me. So seems I am not able to figure out if I am being payed fairly, underpaid or overpaid based on the Prevailing wage determination from the DOL.

Do you know if there is a policy that protects companies from sharing the Prevailing wage?
