Memo Amends on Form I-140
Memo Amends on Form I-140. On 09/14/09, USCIS issued a memorandum amending the Adjudicator’s Field Manual (AFM) on Form I-140 Issues (AFM Update AD07-26). Various issues relating to labor certification applications approved by DOL and filed in support ofFonn 1-140 petitions. USCIS processing time for an I-140 Petition is typically four to six months. However, for an additional filing fee, the USCIS will adjudicate the petition via “premium processing” (15 calendar days). You can check the status of your Form I-140 online through the USCIS website using the “Check Case Status” tool. USCIS should adjudicate your green card application in approximately twelve to eighteen months, assuming your priority date becomes current. If approved, you will receive your green card in the mail about 30 days after approval. USCIS will issue a corrected EAD normally within 30-45 days of receiving the EAD that contains the error. Although it’s true that the State Department does not provide a way to go back and change an already submitted DS-160, you can go online to submit a new, corrected DS-160, print the new confirmation page, and bring that to your interview at the consulate or embassy.
