Change Of Employer (COE) with Employer A’s approved i140 before 180 days, to Employer B scenario

2 posts in this topic

Need Clarification on below:

1.      In Change Of Employer (COE) with Employer A’s approved i140 before 180 days, to Employer B scenario:

a.      If the i140 remains valid for 180 days, even after quitting A before 180 days and then revoked/withdraw by A and still covered by AC21 Portability Act(Jan’2017 Amendment) & extension granted based on A’s i140 will still be honored?

b.      If the i140 got revoked before 180 days, still the Priority Date(PD) will be portable to B?

c.      Even, if B dint process GC or moving to Employer C,A’s approved i140 (even after revoked, but remains active for 180 days) can be used for unlimited H1b beyond 6 years extension with B or C, until the PD become current?

d.      What are the other legal implications of COE before 180 days with approved i140?

e.      Is there any travel restrictions, till we get new i140 from B?

f.       Is there any possibilities of queries/RFE during i1485 stage?

1. Yes

2. Yes. Retention is the word.

3. ??

4. H1 status allows you to travel and return with the visa.

5. Not because a new employer filed your GC. You have the same chance as anybody else to get a RFE.
