Exclamation I 140 approved - moving to Canada.

Hi, I have an approved I 140 (EB3) and my priority date is Nov 2007. I have a Canadian PR and my employer has agreed to let me work from our Canada Office. My question is, what should I do when/if my priority date becomes current while we are in Canada ? Should we come back to USA on visitors visa and apply for AOS or should be go for Consular Processing ? What are the pros and cons of each approach ?

Question is why you want to move to Canada. If you want that your Canadian PR does not get invalidated bcoz you didn't stay 3 yrs out of 5 in Canada, then, I would rather suggest, that you work thru your company (Canadian company) in US. The number of days you spend outside Canada working thru a canadian company in US are counted towards your day of stay in Canada. You can check this info.

To ans your question, you can come to US on visitor visa/business visa whatever visa to file for your I-485 but as far as I know, you cannot stay more than 6 months outside US on AOS. So I would rather do a CP.
There are some differences in AOS & CP. In AOS, you get EAD & AP which is as good as GC. If your case is denied, you can challenge it in US Courts in case of AOS.
In case of CP, the consulate will call you for interview & you have to be there on that specified date & time else its curtains for your case. You cannot challenge their decision.

Default Canadian PR

Your first part of the question, so if I find an employer in Canada, then can I work for that company in the US without loosing the PR dates ? Are there are any complications to this ?

What about the spouse and children, can they stay in the US too or do they have to stay in Canada ?

Is the PR years counted only for the principal applicant or for all applicants?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
