LCA and permanent labor certification


Recommended Posts

1. Can the LCA associated with H1-B and the permanent labor certification be filed at the same time? Or is only the permanent labor certification filed in such cases?


2. If one switches to another employer after the permanent labor certification is approved, I suppose one has to have the new employer file afresh for a new permanent labor certification. Is this correct, or can one have the new employer file for I-140 within 180 days of the approval of the permanent labor certification filed by the previous employer? How long does one need to stay with the employer who files the I-140 in order that the process need not be repeated starting from either filing of the permanent labor certification, or filing of a new I-140?


3. At what point may one step out of the country for a while (say, for about one year) without jeopardizing one's case?

@Satishroy - These are very generic questions and answers to these are readily available on forum like this or even on USCIS's website, please take some time to ready and understand the process, as this will help you in the long run as GC process as it stands today is a long grueling one. And the knowledge will go a long way.
