Planning to Switch Job on I-485 Please help

Recommended Posts


I am a CPA and I am working as a senior accountant for a small law firm. My I-485 receipt notice date is July 31st 2018 and my i-140 was approved as well. My firm is closing down in few months. I might have an offer from a public accounting firm in the audit area. My job responsibilities won't be very similar as compared to my current job. If I switch my job after completing the 180 days requirement and work in audit, would it be a problem?

Well, the new job has to be same or similar duties. This is single most criterion I think to be judged during the interview.

It will be whole new game if duties are far different. Compare SOC codes and try to establish link. Safest bet is to stay on the job till interview. The worst case is to get rejected because you applied with one type of job and switched to another.
