Thumbs down Got the Pink slip yesterday

So.. yesterday I got the pink slip from my employer and I was let go.

I need help from experts to avoid making the situation from bad to worse

1. I have H1B and EAD. I was working with the company on H1B. Now the company gonna tell the USCIS about the lay off and revoke H1B. Does it impact me in anyway or GC application?
2. Do I have to inform anything to USCIS?
3. What do I have to do if I have to work on EAD.

Looking forward the reply soon.. searching for the job as well.

I am very sorry to hear this. My best wishes for your job search.

1. Is your I-140 approved? If not you may want to request your manager / HR to not revoke the application. If your employer revoke your unapproved I-140 that will cause big problem to your GC
2. No
3. Nothing special. Find a job and start working with out hassle of H1-B filing etc.

Default That's perfect

That's your solution - join the company which is carrying out your GC and nothing else needs to be done. That is the ideal situation for you to be in . Now just go out and get a job ( if you are going to be working as a consultant for your GC filing company) . Best of luck

I also Got laid off last Feb 19, 2009. Tried to look for Job. found 1 or 2 openings but hundreds of resume are flooding in. Chancei are very slim with all the competition out there.

Application info:
Priority date: Sept 2006
I-485 pending- 1 year had passed.
EAD valid for 2 years (Expiry Dec 2010).

Im under EB3 category - Country Philippines:
Travel State Bulletin Visa for April 2009 - Employment Base Category-- March 2003
USCIS- I-485 processing under Texas service center --July 2007

My Question is:
How does the Travel state and USCIS processing differ from each other? I understand Travel state tells us if there are visas available and USCIS is about the processing of 485.

Now, what happen if 485 reaches the date that USCIS recieves my application (August 2007. Current processing July 2007) .But there is no Visa available under travel state. (currently March 2003. My Priority Date is Sept 2006).


Thanks for your input.

Default working for the original employer is the best option

Considering that USCIS is having the RFE fever now a days, it is best to stick with the employer who filed your GC.

The DOS (Department of State) issues and regulates the number of annual visas for both immigrants and non immigrants. The USCIS determines who gets them.

If your priority date (PD) becomes current (current visa bulletin under your category meets your LC approval date if you are LC based, I-140 if you are not), then your I-485 can be approved (congratulations -> greencard) or denied.

Default I am in the same boat

I am in the same boat. I got laid off last month. I have applied to hundreds of positions but had no luck so far. My I-140 was approved in 2006 and I have a photocopy of it. I already started using my EAD last year. My question - if USCIS approves my green card in the meanwhile (slim chances), would that be a problem?....Also, if USCIS issues an RFE to check whose my employer, would that be a problem?

Yes it would be a problem. Talk to a lawyer soon to figure out what options are available to you.

So, my I- 485 cannot be process if there are no visas available under DOS. Is that right?

If they send green card interview then you can postpone it for 6 months and in the mean time you can get a job. But I do not know how to handle if they send RFE.
