For CP, if it wasn't specified on the I-140, you have to file an I-824 to change to CP.

Same thing for a spouse for the follow-to-join process. An I-824 is required.

Could you share where it is written in the Law? Which clause? 

 

Thanks,

It is the default in the law. The rule that allows changing jobs after 180 days only applies to a pending I-485. With CP there is no I-485, hence you have to start working for the employer who filed the I-140.

@JoeFand/or Friends Thank you very much for clarifying. I have similar situation, but I am currently working from India on US payroll and with same employer who files my I-140. My PD is June2012 (EB-2). So what are my options here? If I-824 is filed in say next couple of weeks, and if PD becomes current (Filing Date), what happens? And also, if dates retrogresses in following month, at the time of processing of the I-824, what happens? I am very new to these kind of things so may be asking stupid questions. I would appreciate your thoughts / comments. Thank you in advance.
