Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.
As far as the consul processing of your visa stamp, you do not need any copy of the new I-797. The consul does not rely on paper copies or originals because they are easily manufactured.
Instead before you come to the interview the consulate staff goes into PIMS = Petition Information Management System and reviews your immigration history in the USCIS electronic files which shows all petitions filed and the supporting documents and the action taken by the adjudicator.
You do not need the I-797
The original LCA is retained by DOL and they send out an electronically certified LCA to the employer. By law the employer is required to provide you a copy of that on or before the start date listed on the LCA.
With regards ***** ***** end client letter, other documentation is acceptable and if the implementation partner provided a letter that was acceptable for petition approval then that is all that would be needed.
I am eager to make this a positive experience for you. Please ask follow-up questions if my answer is not clear.
I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. In the future, you may begin your questions with “FOR JUDITH” and I will be your personal immigration expert.
