Advanced Ability-to-Pay Issues - Recording (.MP3)
An essential component of filing the I-140 petition is the employer’s ability-to-pay the beneficiary’s proffered wage. If the employer currently employs and pays the beneficiary, at minimum, the proffered wage, then demonstrating this can be straightforward. However, in many instances this is not the case, which brings up unique challenges in establishing ability-to-pay. Our panel of experts will discuss advanced issues relating to ability-to-pay, and examine what practitioners should consider when preparing an I-140 petition.
