My brother is a partner in a U.S. company. Can that company file a PERM case for me? Would the fact that a family member owns part of the company increase the chances of it being denied?


If the sponsoring company is owned by someone related to the foreign national being sponsored, that definitely can lead to a denial in a PERM case. In order for the case to be approved in that situation, the employer must be able to demonstrate that the foreign national had no undue influence over the process.  (09.Feb.2023)
