Hi thank you for providing this service in such difficult times for all.

What are the risks of starting the PERM process in the current scenario given the high unemployment numbers? I am a dentist working in a health professional shortage area working for a non profit on  a cap based visa, I’m worried if I start the process and a citizen applies I may loose my job. What can I do to improve my chances of not getting displaced? Ps: I’ve got big student loans to pay off.

Hello,

Do you think Green card processes will pickup speed now?

There are many parts of the process, and the answer depends on the category you are referring to. Generally, processing has slowed since COVID-19 became a factor. However, other aspects of the process are giving hope, such as premium processing returning for I-140s, and due to the consulate delays of interviews, more adjustment of status cases may be able to be filed if priority dates move forward more quickly.

Generally, you are correct, there may be many unemployed U.S. workers at this time that may apply to the advertisement. However, your employer must recruit for the position based on his minimum requirements, and not all individuals may qualify. To discuss the process and your employer's options, it may be best to speak directly with an experienced U.S. immigration attorney.
