Hi guys,

here is another hypothetical situation,

File 485 only (no EAD/AP) before Aug 17th 2007. 140 approved
Lay-off sometime in after than before 180 days passed since RD of 485.
Can we switch to another company on H1 and retain the AOS application from previous company given they will not revoke the 140??

If laid off before 180 days, then you are safe if the employer does not revoke 140 + your 485 does not get adjudicated within those 180 days.

If laid off after 180 days, your employer can revoke the 140 or not - does not matter anymore.
