ETA-9089 Signature Page Lost in mail


Recommended Posts

My ETA-9089 sigature page was lost in mail. Our Attorney has applied my I-140 through regular processing, requesting USCIS to get the duplicate ETA-9089 from DOL.

Has anyone gone through this hassle? How long does it take for the I-140 approval in this scenario?

I am confused as to how much additional time will this add up to the regular I-140 processing.

Thanks in advance.

Hi longwaitforgc,

I filed my application via regular processing on Jan 24th. There is a huge trail on this topic in ******** I-140 forum. Check it out. The latest exciting news is that a person(ID: zebnyc) just like us has upgraded his regular petition to premium after 2.5 months and got approved within 2 weeks. I guess we can follow the same path - wait for 3 months and upgrade to premium.

Does anyone know of a similar case - missing labor; filed through regular and upgraded to PP?

It had happened to me back in 2010. My original PERM approval was sent to me by attorney alongwith the documents I needed to sign but got lost in the mail. The attorney applied regular I-140 requesting duplicate, if required, from DOL. Mine was regular processing and got approved in 1.5-2 months. Never had any issues or delays because of missing original. Hopefully the same happens on your case too. Good Luck.

I might be applying in premium processing as it is 3 months. Just wanted to take a chance. Hopefully nothing bad happens if not good. No idea at what point USCIS requests the copy of labor from DOL. I saw the processing times were updated to 4 months now for TSC and approvals from feb are also seen in some forums. Wish mine is also approved without any issues.

Unfortunately my premium request was rejected by USCIS as there was no original PERM. Hopefully my regular I-140 is approved sooner as it will be 4 months (as per TSC processing timeslines) in another 3 weeks. I dont know if my case falls under regular processing times as the original PERM is missing. Even after 4 months, Can my attorney open a Service Request?

Any thoughts?
