Default I 140 Approved (Change of Employer)

Hi All,

I am currently working for a company A (Financial position not Good and lay offs are happening) which is sponsoring my Green Card. I am on EB2 priority date (OCT 2009). My PERM and I-140 are approved and waiting for my priority date to become current.

Meanwhile I have got a new position with company B and company B is willing to sponsor my Visa as well as my Green Card. What do i need in order to retain my priority date. I think I can port my priority date to the PERM process of company B.
Also let me know what documents do I need to have with me once I join the new company so that when I file for labor from company B I can retain my priority date as OCT 2009.

I would be happy if somebody can help me with your valuable inputs on this regard.

Get a copy of I-140 and make sure that the company A does not withdraw your I-140

Sorry to hear about your position.

First and foremost is maintain your legal status. Till when is your H1B valid? Ask company B to file for H1B immediately.

Yes, Copy of approved I-140 is very important.
You will have to start all over with the labor process once again with company B. This is in case you have not applied for your I-485 yet. The labor process starting from PWD to approval should take approx 4 to 6 months. Once labor is approved then obtaining I-140 from date of filing for it will take approx 4 months. This is the time you will need your copy of old approved I-140 for "Porting the date"

Good luck!

Hi ,

Thanks for your reply. My H1 Visa is valid for another 2.5 years. Jan 2011 when i went to my country I got the Visa stamping also valid for the next 2.5 years.

I have read about Refiling labor and I-140 from the new company from the beginning as I did not file for I-1485.

Copy of Approved I-140??? Do you mean the approval notice? Please let me know

Yes you need to take your I-140 xerox copy atleast from your employer, then you can retain your old priority date while filing again

2.5 yrs-> you have enough time to clear Labor and 140, first transfer your H1B then you start your green card process again
