IMPORTANT:

Becoming a Unites States legal permanent resident based on an offer of permanent employment is a two part process. The UTMB Office of
International Affairs is responsible for preparing only the first part, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services “Immigrant Petition for Alien
Worker” (Form I-140.) You are strongly advised to hire a private immigration attorney to guide you in preparing the second part, the application for
“adjustment of status” (Form I-485 and associated forms.) You have three options for filing this paperwork:

1.   UTMB Office of International Affairs prepares and files the I-140 and supporting documents separately (may be necessary if employment based
     immigrant visa numbers are not immediately available; see State Department “Visa Bulletin” for employment- based immigrant visa priority
     dates at http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/bulletin/bulletin_2631.html )

2.   UTMB Office of International Affairs prepares the I-140 and supporting documents to be filed with the I-485 materials prepared by your
     attorney (referred to as “concurrent filing”)

3.   Your attorney prepares the I-140 for the signature of a UTMB International Affairs staff member, and files the signed I-140 and the I-485 for
     you (referred to as “concurrent filing”)
