I-140 Request for additional evidence

  1. My I-140 and I-485 was filed in September (I have all documents, visascreen and everything). My EAD was approved in October and I worked in hospital (my hospital has a Union)in NYC using EAD. Last month my lawyer received the notice of Request for additional evidence. She said that it's about the prevaling wage She asked a new prevaling wage and sent it out to INS. This week I check my status online and found the INS sent a new notice of Request for additional evidence. I contact with my lawyer and she didn't receive the notice yet. I just worried about my I-140 case. If my I-140 were denied, my I-485 and EADs would also become invalid since they depend on the I-140, and as a result of that I can't work any more. Does anyone have the same experience for Request for additional evidence? Does anyone hear about Schedule A I-140 denial?

    Since the immigration office has asked for further evidences twice, I'm just wondering if it is normal for Schedule A application? Any suggestions or advice which may help me feel better?


    Thanks a lot

    Maybe they received already the requirements sent by your lawyer but did not update your file yet.

    Approval of the I-140 is not automatic as many have found out. And they do get denied for whatever reason.

    If the rate on the prevailing wage agreement is too low, then the I-140 is put on hold or even denied. Or if the document was not filled out properly. A good thing in your favor is that they are asking for more information and not just denying.

    Hi

    I guess your hospital must be hiring other foreign nurses.
    As long as they are OK,I can not find the reason with I-140 that your case is denied.I have heard that people were denied because of visa screen.But I have never heard of this case.I hope you will be fine.:spin:

    My wage is not low at all. it's even higher than average wage in NYC. I also have all documents ( visascreen and everything). I thought my stupid lawyer made something wrong.

    Chances are that the attorney left something out, especially if your salary is higher, or by any chance, are you at a union hospital? If so, they may not have submitted the proper docuements required from the union.

    And I-140 is job specific, it has nothing to do with the nurse passing the English exams.........remember that they Visa Screen Certificate is not needed until interview date, or submitted whn asked for it in the US if not available originally. The English is grounds for not getting the green card, but has nothing to do with the I-140, the AOS, or the EAD.
