DNJ .. Congratulations

What were the RFE's for in I-140 stage ?

I am just curious to find out if you got the RFE's in I140 because you used Labor substitution ....

RFE was regarding the salary:

When orignal filed in 1997 the salary was less, but when RFE in 2000 they wanted the salary to be in sync with current (year 2000 - dot com boom salary)

Congrats man.
Can I know how did you answer the query ... since even my salary was also less than LC. Just curious to know and to be prepared for worst.

It is very heartening to see some positive developments. My case also involves usage of substitution of pre-approved labor certification, but I did not get a RFE for my 140.

I was very scared about some kind of hiccups due to pre-approved labor substitution, good to know that your approval came through, It is very re-assuring.

Good going. Best wishes :)

As i said the salary for another employer (for which i substituted )was under 55 K in 1997, and at time of RFE in 2000 my salary was matching the INS/Labor department requirements of salary.

So the attorney replied with the changes in the salary as per requirement !
