Default help on NIW adjustment of status

Dear friends,

I got my NIW I-140 approved on March, 2009. The priority date indicated on my I-140 approval letter is August, 2008. So I can't submit my I-485 yet since the visa bulletin is not current. Is that correct?

My question is: Can I accept a job abroad and work aborad while I'm waiting for the visa bulletin to become current?

Thanks a million for your help on this.

Thanks for your reply.

What would be the process look like? When the priority date becomes current, what should I do? Where should I subject I-485?

You can file 485 only from within USA. So I believe you will be back to USA before filing 485.

Morchu,

Thank you so much for your help. Really appreciate your help.

So basically while I'm waiting for the priority date to become current, I can legally work aborad for several years without any harm to my GC application at all. When the priority date becomes current, I'll just need to come back to the U.S. to file I-485.

Is that correct? Sorry for keeping asking. Just want to make sure before I make this major decision.
