Today iCERT posted an update to PERM Prevailing Wage Processing Time of September at 90 days to October for 109 days. I suspect 120+ days may be anticipated for November.

The most common form of green card sponsorship through employment is PERM labor certification. The first employment visas to the US are usually nonimmigrant visas. Because they take less time to obtain. We have assisted thousands of people and we file hundreds of nonimmigrant and immigrant petitions every year.

We are very successful in preparing labor certifications and subsequent immigrant visas and green cards for employers and their employees. We prepare many of such applications each year among the hundreds of petitions we prepare. Currently, the Dept of Labor is randomly auditing about 40% of the PERM labor certification filings. Although, we cannot guarantee your filing will not be audited. Our PERM filings are seldom audited by the DOL. Maybe that is because we prepare our filings with the audit in mind as we perform all the steps along the way. Unlike, most firms who only prepare an audit file after they receive an audit notice. We can't be sure, but maybe it's our reputation for paying attention to all the details that results in our lack of audits and PERM Certifications.
