I am still at the job posting stage and my visa is expiring on March 2021. I’ve been following-up with the lawyer and they don’t seem pressured with the timing. I just feel that I am in a tight situation considering new visa regulations from Trump’s administration & wondering if I am overreacting. If anybody is on the same boat, do you think that I should be worried & should continue to follow up frequently with the lawyer?

OP can you extend beyond March 2021? Because that may be the case they are not stressing out. How is your Firm dealing with NOF posting during office closure?

Also, definitely follow up with your lawyers regularly, but at job posting stage there isn't much you can do to accelerate the timelines. The role has to be up for 30 days, followed by a cooloff period of 30 days. You can try to push them to prioritize building your ETA 9089 after those 60 days and not waste precious time, but that's about it.

Which firm? I

It is Fragomen who is working on our firm’s visa procressing.

@KPMG1 they told me that DOL allowed job posting outside office even if it is close.

Thank you @kpmg1! I should be able get the i-140 before my visa expires
