A Welcome Change: Faster Employment-Based Green Cards
Good news for foreign nationals trying to obtain an employment-based green card. On July 31st, the INS announced that they will now accept simultaneous filings of the I-140, the underlying petition for an employment-based immigrant visa, and the I-485, the permanent residence application if the visa number is available. In addition to new applications, I-140s that are currently pending fall under the new concurrent filing rule. However, the alien must include proof of the pending I-140 petition. A copy of their I-797, or Notice of Action, must accompany the I-485 filing. Learn More
