"Solving Today's PERM Puzzle"
One of the panelists indicated that a PO Box for the employer may result in a denial. The employer registered with an address and then a PO Box on C. 2 Address Line #2. Since this is a pre- fill line on the Form 9089, should the employer revise their address or can they?
Should a paralegal be the user on the account or the attorney. One of the employers registered our paralegal as a user so that name is prefilled under attorney section. The form does allow you to change the name. Is this okay?
#A. 1. Regarding using the priority date from the previously filed labor certification. Our Romanian client has a son aging out in July, 2006, so we need to file the I-140 asap and thus the client is electing to file for PERM. He has a pending labor certification in Dallas and has returned the 45-day letter. We are assuming we answer the #A.1. "no" since the priority date is not an issue for Romania now. Would you agree?
Answer by Steven A. Clark:
1) Only employer can change this.
2) I recommend registering attorneys only for this reason.
Answer by Ron Klasko:
1) We would suggest revising the registration. The employer would have to do this.
2) Only the attorney should be listed as a user.
3) If the new filing is "identical", the answer should be "yes"; otherwise, "no."
