Ask an Immigration Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, welcome to JustAnswer, my name isXXXXX you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
I am unclear on what was denied.
Adjustment of Status
My first stage of filing perm in greencard .
Thanks and Regards
Based on what you are saying I think the case has gone to Audit which takes 2 years.
If in fact the PERM was not certified and the lawyer filed an appeal with the Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals those are taking 18-24 months.
There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING you can do to expedite this or to speed up the process.
This process belongs to the employer and you just have to sit back and hope for the best.

Audit is one which I believe some document is missing or when the case is very complicated.My company attorney told me that this should not take more then 30-60 days for my revised determination.He is sending all the company details and affidavit to
immigration officer.Since he filed me in EB2 category and my case will handle by merit wise.Do you have some more opinion about it.Please give me urs suggestions.
Thanks and Regards,
It is possible that your attorney has asked for reconsideration and that is not an audit nor is it an appeal.
It is a process where the attorney points out an error made by the DOL and asks them to look further into their decision.
If that is what he did then that indeed does take only 1-2 months.
Exactly !!!! He is requesting them to reconsider my application for the wrong dicision made by the DOL. and he is sending all the phone records and no phone message proving for no call from immigration officer.
OK, it appears you have a very good lawyer.
