CASE: I-140 (EB-3)
EMPLOYER: Taekwondo (Martial Arts) School
BENEFICIARY: Korean
LOCATION: Ohio

Our client is a former Taekwondo athlete, who currently studies in the United States. He has a Taekwondo school which was willing to petition him for a third-preference petition (I-140).  Our client has a bachelor’s degree in a related field. After talking to our client, our firm concluded that his potential employer can petition him as a Taekwondo Coach.  Based on our client’s educational, professional and working backgrounds, our office determined that he is clearly eligible for EB-3 classification for his I-140 petition.  Our client eventually retained us on December 27, 2016.

Prior to filing PERM, our firm prepared the prevailing wage request, job order, advertisements, internal job posting, recruitment report, and all other steps which are important pre-PERM filing. Take note that PERM could be filed at least 60 days from the job posting date or 30 days from the last ad. On January 6, 2017, the prevailing wage request was filed.  After we obtained foreign degree evaluation report, our office filed the job order on March 29, 2017.  On July 18, 2017, we promptly filed PERM.  Eventually, on November 1, 2017, the PERM Labor Certification was approved – an EB3 position for the Korean beneficiary.

We then proceeded with the I-140 Petition filing. We submitted the “ability to pay” letter for the I-140 petition application. We included the job offer letter, employer’s tax records, and other necessary supporting documents.

The I-140 Petition was filed on November 13, 2017 via premium processing service. Eventually, on November 21, 2017, the I-140 EB3 Petition for our Korean client was approved without any Request for Evidence (RFE). He can file an I-485 adjustment of status application for his green at any time since his priority dates are current.
