Practice Note
Success Story: RN Gets Permanent Residency in 99 Days

Is it real? Getting permanent residency in 99 days?


Yes.  On Sept. 29, 2006, we received an approval notice for an I-485 we filed on June 22, 2006 together with a Schedule A Registered Nurse I-140 petition.  The I-140 has been approved earlier in August, and now the I-485 is approved. 


Since the Schedule A application does not require labor certification from the Department of Labor, but rather the DOL 9089 Form (the labor certification form) to be filed together with the I-140 and I-485 to the USCIS the same time, with the availability of immigrant number for Schedule A positions in RN and Physical Therapist, this has become one of the fastest routes to obtain permanent residency.  Nevertheless, getting I-485 approval in 99 days remains extremely rare.  Certainly, it requires the meeting of several factors, including the pass of security and name check of the applicant.  Needless to say, our clients, both the individual and the employing hospital are thrilled.


Are you applying for permanent residency?  Either it is for EB-1, NIW, PERM Labor Certification, or Schedule A positions, Lin & Valdez is a proven leading law firm in employment-based petitions.  Just give us a call, or send us an e-mail.  As we always say, the help you need is just fingers away!
