J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
In theory this means you "may" be eligible to apply for your I-485 on an EB-3 basis since the priority date is now current on the visa bulettin BUT, I do not know all the facts. So, you should consult with competent counsel and/or the employer's attorney who filed the PERM and I-140 or bring your file to a third-party attorney for review. Good luck.
You are speaking of an I-140 Approval (EB-3). You cannot do anything unless there is a visa available. If you are in the United States, you would file I-485 should you qualify. If you are outside the U.S. you do consular processing again if you qualify. Speak to an experienced immigration lawyer, it is very important.
