Default Porting the Priority Date (PD)

First time I applied Labor Certification (LC) in 2004(pending, not approved or denied) and second time I applied on PERM without porting the first Labor application date with same company, same catagory(EB3) and same job description which approved with PD Feb 2006. I applied 485 on july last year when all PD were current.

Question: Can I port my PD from the first Labor application date now.

You can port PD only by sending in the previous approved 140 with the new 140 and request for interfiling!

gurus will correct me if i am wrong!

Yes. First I-140 should be cleared for you to port your PD to the second I-140.
I struggled a lot with this stupid PD transfer. Hope this helps.

My first LC did not get approved or denied. So i did not applied I-140. I guess my only option to wait and to see what the brain dead congress action is.
