Default PERM question

Hi,

My H1B expires in November 2011. My current employer started the PERM processing and is filing my PERM in July 2011. Even though I left my previuos employer in November 2010, he filed my PERM in the first week of January 2011 and got it approved in the third week of January 2011.
I have couple of questions:-

1. Would it be possible for my previous employer to file my I-140 as I am not working
with them as my current employer is in the process of filing the PERM?

Reason why I am asking the above question is that if my I-140 gets approved through my previous employer, then the current employer can you the case id to extend my H1B.

2. Can the current employer file my PERM as I already got my PERM approved through my
previous employer?


Awaiting your response.

Yes. Your new employer will need I-140 approval notice to get extension.

Reason why I am asking the above question is that if my I-140 gets approved through my previous employer, then the current employer can you the case id to extend my H1B.

2. Can the current employer file my PERM as I already got my PERM approved through my
previous employer?

Yes. you can have as many perms/I-140s filled as you want

Awaiting your response.
Your previous employer can file for the I-140 if the job is still available for you. But you can not get the H1B extension with the current employer based on that.

Thanks for your quick response.

Once my I 140 gets approved through my previous employer, I need to provide the approval notice/case number to my current employer to get my H1B extended right?
