Filed the i-140 with a master in management and finance achieve in 1998 in France.
Received a copy of a second master achieve in 2012 previously lost and not attached to the file.
Can I add it to the case? My first master was in an old accreditation overseas system and the AACRAO edge database might conclude that it is a Bachelor.
My second master is a state diploma (from France) in Corporate Finance, no doubt it will be accepted as the equivalent of a US master.
It really depends on what the position requires and what the PERM application listed as the minimum requirements for the position.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
First you need an educational evaluation from a professional company.
Then, if the lawyer that prepared the I-=140 agrees that it will help the case, he/she can send it in.

If the masters degree from 1998 is insufficient you can add the other 2012 masters degree provided that the latest degree was issued prior to the filing of the PERM. Your employer's immigration attorney should be reviewing this issue with you.
