After Filing 485
 
Hello,
I am wondering if I leave my current job after 180 days of filing 485 (140 approved) and leave the country will it disqualify me from being eligible for GC or after 180 days of application all bets are off?

Did you say you're planning to leave your company after 180 days and then leave the country as well? I think it will disqualify you from getting your GC because if you want to invoke AC21 portability, you have to be working with the same job qualifications that you have on your petition and you cannot do that if you are outside of the US.

yes thats exactly what I meant. Due to some uncontrollable circumstances non work related I might have to relocate back to my country of origin and was curious if I could still be eligible for a GC.

Employment Terminated after 60 days past filing I485 and before Receipt
 
I am in severe trouble, my employer said he would terminate my h1b and GC.
I have I140 Approval copy with me
My I485 was filed on July 2nd 2007
My priority date is June 2004

I have not yet received any receipts for I485
My checks are not cashed.

My H1B is valid until Nov 2007

I am drop dead, what should I do now.
I am looking for
option1: a new employer to transfer my h1B
option2: I was doing my MS, so chnage status to F1.

But what will happen to my GC, Priority dates , I140

Please, tell me what is my best option to continue staying in US.

Hello Friends,

I need some help and advice from all you experienced and learned people. I very much thank you in advance for your responses.

I will be able to apply for I485 in Jan 2013 (missed the July 2007 :( ). My company is based in California. Request you to please advise as follows:
1. In how many days after filing for I485 can I expect to have the Green Card?
2. While I485 is pending and if company shuts down, will it affect me any anyway?

Thanks.

It varies from case to case but typically around 3 months (on an average), Provided dates dont retrogress.

Thanks Indigo10.

I will appreciate if someone could please reply to the 2nd question:
"If I485 is pending approval and in the meantime company shuts doors, then will it affect the I485 application in anyway?"

Thanks in advance once again Gurus.

I apologize for hijacking this thread, but I will appreciate if I could please get some inputs from you learned and experienced IV-ans to the below question:

While I485 is pending approval and if company shuts down, will it affect in any anyway?
Normally how long does it take to get I485 approval after applying?

I will be able to apply for I485 in Jan 2013 (missed the July 2007 :( ). My company is based in California.

Thanks
