7th year extn based on approved PERM ??

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I learnt from a friend that his 7th year extension was approved, based on a certified PERM-LC through his previous employer, which was filed 365 days before his max out, his attorney was able to do this, while waiting on a PERM-LC decision through his current employer.

Person ABC was working with company A & got his PERM-LC certified, then switched job to company B, where the GC process was delayed & now his maxout is approaching sooner, his current employer managed to get his 7th year extension approved based on a certified PERM-LC through his previous employers, which was filed 365 days before the maxout, Is this a valid option, as I'm going through the same phase, with similar scenario. Kindly advise. Thanks.

My info
PERM certified with Prev. Empl     - 09/2019
Max Out with recapture                 - 05/2021
PERM Filed with Current Empl      - 10/2020
Expecting it to be certified             - 05/2021 (with current timeline)

I'm in the same case with one employer.


My Info : 
PERM Certified                    : 12/2019
PERM Expired                      : 06/2020
I140 Denied                         : 02/2021
Max Out with recapture     : 04/2021
I140 Re-applied                   : 02/2021


Can I apply H1-extn based on the approved PERM and Pending I-140 receipt in order to get the 7th Year Extension? Can you advice here?
