The second step of the employer-sponsored green card process is the I-140 petition. The purpose of the I-140 petition is to demonstrate to USCIS that the foreign national worker possesses the minimum requirements provided on the PERM Labor Application and that the employer has the ability to pay the wage offered for the position.  Once approved, a PERM application is valid for 180 days, and the I-140 petition must be filed during this time.  EIG attorneys work closely with both employers and employees to ensure that the I-140 petition is successful and insulated from negative scrutiny by USCIS.
