Hello Shawn, my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.Unfortunately, you lawyer is not giving you correct information. There are no visa numbers available for fiscal year 2016 and 9/19/2016 is requesting petition approval for a fiscal year that has no visa numbers available.Your lawyer can try to send a request to amend the pending petition immediately by Fedex saying that the start date is a typo and should read 10/01/2016.It is a long shot that USCIS would allow the petition to be amended while pending but it is the only option available.I don't understand why the lawyer is telling you it is not a problem. Hopefully he has the LCA start date as 10/01/2016. If he put the wrong date on that then it will most likely be rejected.I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face or 3+ starsIn the future, you may begin your questions with “FOR JUDITH” and I will be your personal immigration expert.Judith
