View Full Version : Apply I-485 but never worked for a company

Please help me on this question

I was on F-1 Visa in 2003 I applied for the labor certification through a friend's company- call it Company- A, on the intention to to work in his company as a Network administrator. I got my labor approved and I -140 is approved too. The priority date is december 2003. All these years I was waiting for my priority date to become current.Currently I work for Company B with same job title and credentials. I have an H-1 from company B.

What do you suggest

1) Shall I go ahead and apply for the I 485 from company A (company A is willing to help). Can INS ask for the pay stubs? Becoz I never actually worked at my friend's company.

2) It will take 3-4 months for company B to finish doing my labor certification and apply for my I -140. But it would be too late for the priroty date. (It may retrogress).

3)I understand that once my current company's I -140 is approved i can request to keepo my previous priority date

what shall i do now in july/august.
you think i just go ahead and apply for I-485 and get the EAD card for me and my wife
Do i have to work for the company A later (I can do that)
What are the risk factors involved

Pls help me
