Default AC21 Multiple Times

If this is a duplicate thread, I apologize and admin please close/delete this.

1) Many of us have already used AC21, The current economic condition might force us to switch job on EAD, Can we file AC21 multiple times. Has any one done this.
2) If I do not file AC21, with new job and can we leave with the 1st employer as for future employment, Join the original employer we filed AC21 upon approval of GC, In than condition, an offer letter from the employer hold good in case of RFE.

Default

I have used AC21 twice. I did send a letter to USCIS for my first move. i have not sent any letter for my second move. Most of the attorneys i consulted are saying it is not necessry to file for AC 21 unless you feel the employer can jeopardise your green card.

There is no rule for filing AC 21. If you get an RFE, they will request the specific document they need. If you are following the rules, then you should be able to provide whatever they request in the RFE.
