The Second Stage of the Employment Based Green Card Process

Second stage of US Employment Based Green Card Process

At the Law Offices of Tina Sharma, after we have completed the first stage which is the perm process, we move on with the second stage of the US employment-based green card process.

Once you get through perm and you have a certified perm case from the Department of Labor you are ready to go into the second stage of the US employment-based green card process which is Form I-140 Petition for Immigrant Worker.

What is Form I-140 Petition for Immigrant Worker?

At the I-140 stage, it’s important to remember that any details regarding the job requirements that were set on your perm case, including the degree, the number of years of experience and any qualifying requirements in terms of technologies that are required for the position must be proven with documentary evidence.

For example, if a job requires a bachelor’s degree plus five years of experience and that is set forth as the minimum requirements in the perm stage, at the I-140 stage, the individual being sponsored must be able to prove that they have the required bachelor’s degree and that they have the required five years of experience.

Usually, we prove the work experience using letters signed by previous employers and copies of the individual’s diploma and education requirements are used to prove they have the required education.

The Form I-140  is submitted by the petitioning employer and signed by an authorized individual at the petitioning employer on behalf of the employer.
