I-140: Petition for Alien Worker:

  • An I-140 petition, or Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, is filed to petition an alien worker to become a permanent resident in the United States.  The employer must file an I-140 Petition on your behalf within 180 days from the date your Labor Certification is approved by the U. S. Department of Labor. An I-140 Petition may be filed without a Labor Certification where the beneficiary qualifies under EB-1 classification.


    • Completed Form I-140;
    • A copy of your approved Labor Certification;
    • Filing fee of $580 (may have changed – please check) by check or money order made payable to the Department of Homeland Security;
    • Proof of the petitioner’s financial position to pay the beneficiary’s wages;
    • Experience letters from the beneficiary’s previous employers;
    • Other documents such as degree certificates, education evaluations, and qualification letters may be required;
    • In the I-140 petition, the employer must identify whether the beneficiary will apply for consular processing at an American consulate abroad for an immigrant visa or apply for adjustment of status to become a permanent resident within the United States.
