Should I change job if I-140 is just approved?

Recommended Posts

I am on H1-B visa and will have I-140 approved shortly. I have another job offer which will also start the GC process immediately. Here are my doubts:
1. Would I have to go with recruitment/PERM/I-140 process again? Or some steps can be skipped/sped up?
2. If I don't get my new I-140 approved within 6 months, would I lose the priority date? 
3. If I don't get my new I-140 approved within 6 months, can I continue extending my H1-B visa indefinitely?
4. What problems can I face if my current employers cancel the current I-140 immediately after I switch?

Different websites are giving different answers on this subject - perhaps also because of different years of writing.

In general, I see people advising not to switch jobs in this stage, but the salary difference is really high and I am wondering if it's worth the risk. I have 2 years left on H1-B. Any advice is appreciated.

Thank you!

can you tell me your experience.

were you able to retain the PD when you move to new employer in less than 180 days after 140 approval

I have only one year left on my H1b.
