What is the typical steps for I-140 application?
An I-140 petition is the second step in the employment based Green Card process. Once your PERM Labor Certificate is approved, your employer will file a Form I-140 (known as Petition for Immigrant Worker) on your behalf.
After the USCIS receives your I-140 petition packet, it will issue a Receipt Notice and assign a file number to your case. This is an acknowledgment of receipt. If USCIS accepts your petition then an Approval Notice will be issued. This means your I-140 has been approved and you can move on to the next step in your GC Process.
If your PD is current, you can also file I-140 and I-485 application at the same time.
