Default I485 question-Company acquired by another company

Sorry for opening a new thread, Please point me to the thread if this issue is already addressed in some other thread and delete this thread.

I filed my I-485 in July, Still waiting for receipts, Now my company got acquired by another company. My questions are-

Any actions required from my side? What will happen to my I-485 which is already filed, Do I need to re-file with new company?
If I get EAD in next few weeks can I use that EAD after 6 months of filing I485?

Thanks

Default You should be OK

In my opinion you should be OK.

I think since you have filed I-485 you are in adjustee status so you need not even be working for the company that filed your GC.

Since your co. got acquired the new co. will have to do a H1 transfer and if USCIS raises any RFE regarding your I-485 app then the new co. can respond on behalf of the old co. with a letter saying that they have acquired the original filer co.

If you get called for an interview at the time of GC approval then again you can take a letter of job offer from the new co. along with the letter of acquisition and you should be OK.

Default Similar situation in labor

I had similar situation in labor process. The new company attorney mentioned me to do an amendment for labor processing, however I was reluctant and did not continue with it. An year later on pending labor, I received RFE: something like unable to find company. Attorney then sent the company acquisition details. Months later labor got approved.

Talk to your attorney.

Even I am in the same Boat, but i believe we do not have to worry about this, this is what I found it in murthy.com when I googled for it couple of weeks back ..

If an I-140 is pending at the time that the company changes, according to the CSC, "no action is required" until the completion of the I-140 stage. Evidence of the "bona fides" of the Successor should be submitted at the time of filing the I-485 application

The CSC will allow applicants to supplement the file on an existing I-485 by submitting evidence of the "bona fides" of the Successor that shows that the same position and compensation, etc. are still offered. The CSC has confirmed will not require re-filing of the I-140 or the I-485.

In order to avoid having such evidence routed through the correspondence process, the attorney should clearly establish on the cover letter that attached documents are for consideration in connection with a pending I-485 application, based on CSC/AILA concurrence and make clear reference to the I-485 Receipt number

You have two options in this situation.

1. File an amendment to the approved I-140 based on Merger / Acquisition
2. Once you got EAD, invoke AC 21 and can continue with your employer.

I was in your similar situation when my division is acquired and my attorney filed an I-140 amendment, as I do not want to use EAD. [H1 / H4 is duel intent and we can be still protected even if I-485 is denied! When we are not switching companies why to loose this advantage?]

Thanks

I had the same situation when before I apply my GC my company was taken over by my current employer ... there is something called 'successor of interest' .... as I understand the new company will take over ownership of any H1/GC etc that you have with your previous employer ...

this is just my thoughts .. better you get it verified by your lawer ...
