Hello Friends,
I applied for my permenant residency on Feb, 2002 under EB3 category. My PD is 02-DD-2002. As of today my LC and I-140 has been certified. I am from India.

Recently i got a new job offer from another company and the new employer is willing to sponsor my green card under PERM - EB2 category. I understand that its very easy to get the LC and I-140 certification within months under PERM premium processing. In this case my new priority date will be the date i apply my new LC.

If i get my PERM LC and I-140 under EB2 category with new employer, at the time of filing I-485 can i use my old priority date (Feb, 02) instead of PERM LC priority date?

My question is

With new PERM LC and I-140, can i apply for I-485 with my old priority date from the first LC? Please kindly provide your suggestion

The current labor belongs you b/c I-140 has been approved. Secure your current approved LC and I-140 documents and then move on to the new employer's pay roll.

All the best ...

yes you can.
move to the new company and file via perm. when you apply for 485 you can use those old pre-perm 2002 dates.

I got different answers from Khanna and Murthy.

Khanna office saying we can apply for 485 with old priority date(140 will be approved with new pritority date), murthy office said it's better to get 140 approval with old priority date and then go for 485.

check with your attorney.

when you file for the 485 you can use old priority date. priority dates can be transferred if old 140 was approved and you changed the company to restart the process all over again.

Can you use an PD from an old labour application, that was approved but the labour has been used for another employee?

I think not as from your answer it appears , labour & i-140 must have been approved for the same person, just wanted to get it clarified.

Thanks.

that the new 140 gets approved(for which i have no doubt) with old priority date.
then go ahead for 485.
the only point here is to play SAFE, and try to be on H1 until the new 140 is approved

1) 140 MUST be approved for your 5-26-01 application with your old company.

2) With your new company, get your LC approved under PERM

3) While applying for 140 with your new company, use your old company's 140 to port your 5-26-01 priority date.

Good Luck.

PS: Murthy version is reliable compared to Khanna, it is better to apply for porting during 140 stage rather than 485 stage.

I've heard so many variations of this. Does anyone have any experience acually doing this. Is it possible for your new company to sneak in and port your old company's LC/I140 withou them knowing or while you are still at the old company. Obviously you would not want to leave your old company till your new company gets the I140 with he old PD ported -right?
