I-140 Special Categories
The I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker is used by an employer wishing to sponsor (or petition) for a foreign national to work in the United States on a permanent basis. Some highly qualified alien workers can self-petition I-140. The job must require an advanced degree and you must possess such a degree or its equivalent (a baccalaureate degree plus 5 years progressive work experience in the field). You may be eligible for an employment-based, second preference visa if you are a member of the professions holding an advanced degree or its equivalent, or a foreign national who has exceptional ability. The following Margaret W. Wong and Associates client success stories are a few examples of those who obtained a 1-140 Petition for Alien Relative. Please Contact us today to start your I-140.

Mr. B, of the Ukraine, first came to the U.S. on an H-1B in October of 2008. His employer approached our office to file the H-1B for him.

A Polish immigrant with accounting and business administration skills hired us to help her obtain a Green Card through an employer willing to sponsor her. She had two sons and a fiancé who were also foreign-born. We first filed the Labor Certification in 2001 and helped the employer file the I-140 immigrant petition on her behalf in July 2002.

A Turkish network administrator with a background in Computer Science came to U.S on an H-1B through some other attorneys. He was employed by an Education Center in U.S. When our client’s employer expressed the desire to sponsor him permanently, he wanted to retain our services.

An Indian physician who came on H-1B (Non-Immigrant Work Visa), retained our services in 2006. We started his process by filing I-140 (Petition filed by the employer for permanent employment for employee) in July 2006. Unfortunately, the application was denied in November 2006. We filed a Motion to Reopen within 30 days of receiving the I-140 denial. The MTR was granted. Our efforts were rewarded and the I-140 was approved.
