H1b 7th year & 140 approved: Employer change options
Here's my situation:
H1b: 7th Year (valid through Nov 2009)
Priority Date: Aug 2007
485/EAD: cannot file due to retrogression
I have a permanent employment offer from the employer where I am contracting, right now for the same job. Following are the questions I have:
1. Can I change my employer?
2. Can I retain my Priority date?
3. If the new employer files for transfer of H1, what does it mean to my extension beyond 7th year?
3. No issues. You have approved I140, and using this you can get 3 year extension. But be careful to be discreet about the job change, because by any chance if your current employer revokes the I140, before your extension approval, you will be in trouble. (Because the basis for approval of beyond 7nth year extension is your approved I-140.)
First PD : EB3 May 01
PD->EB2 DEC 03
LC Approved OCt 2006
I-140 Approved Mar 2007
