H1B based upon I-140

Recommended Posts

Hello,

             I have a quick question on my case:

I -140 approved from company X. H1 B with company X expired in May 2020 and then  I stopped working and is no longer employed with company X and company X doesn't withdraw the I-140 petition.

Gets an offer from another company Y in Jan 2021 after 7 months.  Is it possible for company Y to  apply for H1 based upon previously approved I 140  (with company X). Or does company Y needs to apply for a fresh / new / Cap subject H1 in March of 2021 and  I can start working only from October of 2021.

 

Please let me now,

Company Y can use the I140 from Company X in Jan 2021 to apply for a cap exempt H1.  You don't need to go thought the cap again.

From your post it looks I140 is active and old employer did not revoke it. In such case new employer can apply for new H1B any time of the year...

Working with Y on H1 is only possible if the PD from X’s petition doesn’t become current by that time..

So, under the above condition, employer does not revoke I-140 but also not started 485, can that approved I140(of more than 6 months) is still valid and doesn't matter even if employer revokes I-140(here I-140 has been approved for more than 6 months)
