Default I-140, transfer of Case

My situation is as below:

a)My 6 years H1b will be over by May 07 and my I-140 case is in-process and we have used Premium Processing, once that gets approved, I would like to transfer my case from current attorney. What are the other steps involved once I-140 is approved.Is it safe to transfer the case to another attorney as this attorney is too lazy to respond to any questions.

b)I have couple of offers and I would like to take the benefit of 3-years H1b extension(after I-140 is approved), what precaution I should be take and what risk am I going to encounter.Shall I request these couple companies to sponsor my GC & H1b?

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Thanks in-advance,

Once I-140 is approved you then wait for your PD to become current in order to file I-485. However as you intend changing employers you will need to restart your GC process.
I believe you can transfer your case to another attorney if your current one is not providing excellent service to you. Make sure you have copies of all forms he submitted to USCIS as well as all receipt and approval notices from USCIS.

Make sure your current employers file for and obtain the 3 year extension before you leave them. If possible, make sure they will not revoke your 140 in order to keep your PD. And of course, your new eployers will have to restart your GC process as well as file for your H1.

Quick question, I he joine another employer and work for a number of years until his priority date becomes current then he goes back top his previous employer would he be able to file his I-485?

What would be the cae if he work part time for the original employer and full time for the new employer? would he be able to file I-485 and to heep his PD?

THE ABOVE BASED ON THE FACT THAT THE ORIGINAL EMPLOYER WILL NOT REVOKE I-140 AND WILL CONTINUE EMPLOYING THE EMPLOYEE ON A PART TIME BASIS.

Since job is for future employment, yes he can technically leave the employers or work part time for them (will need to resubmit H1B LCA and get new H1B for new full time employers) and then submit 485 when PD is current as long as the underlining 140 is not revoked.
