    Answered . Currently DOL is processing July 2011 cases. If audited the case will fall behind to February 2011- which means that US DOL is currently processing cases that were audited... from February.
    month. Good Luck with filing.

    Answered . My colleague is correct - it depends on whether or not selected for an audit. One to two months with no audit, but can be two years with an audit.

    Preference category (EB-2/EB-3) doesn't impact labor cert processing time at all, or I-1409 processing time really. After I-140 processing time, it significantly impacts wait time before the final stage can be processed.

    Speak with an attorney for further guidance.
