Hi,

My employer filed my i-140 petition under EB2 category,I competed my bachelors in 2006 and my priority date is jan 31 2014 so i had around 7 years of experience with bachelors degree qualifying me for EB2,My final year marksheet (2006) along with final printed degree certificate indicates that i completed my bachelors in 2006 but the final degree certificate was dated with date of 2008(issued late as usual due to backlogs in india),USCIS issued RFE taking 2008(degree dated date) as my bachelors completion date and issued RFE that i have 4 years 7 months of experience based on degree dated date(2008),My employer replied with response stating the facts that i completed my degree in 2006 itself and i also provided expert letter confirming the process in India and that i did completed bachelors in 2006,But i see that USCIS denied my I-140 even after providing details,What are my options now even if its a total mistake on their part,i dont want to loose my priority date by filing labor again and going for long wait again.
