PERM Status - Applied in July 2019

Hello,

My PERM was applied in last July and it still shows pending in the status. The lawyer told me they dont have any audits.

What could be the reason?

Thanks

It happened with me in my first perm application. DOL not sent any response, but after 6 month my attorney raised the request/query to DOL about the status and DOL told it is already denied. My attorney and company never received any communication before raising request.
