Job change close to GC approval

Recommended Posts

Hi, I got a new opportunity and am wondering if it is a good idea to change job at this stage.

This is where I am: .......Filed I485 around 7 months ago. PD is still current. Biometrics completed. Did not receive EAD/AP yet. However, I received RFE for medicals. Will send medicals in a week or so.

I plan to move to new job using H1B transfer. As I will submit medicals in few days, it is quite possible that I will get GC just after job change. Will this cause any problem for citizenship in future? Will USCIS consider this as fraudulent intent as job change is possibly very close to GC approval?

Please let me know your thoughts.

Since I-485 is pending 180 days plus, you can use AC21 to change employers. HELP yourself and get an actual lawyer to guide you.

I am in the same boat. Applied 485 last Oct eb3 straight Mar 2014 PD. Joining my new employer around Aug 2nd week. Most likely my PD could become current for Sep bulletin, so i might receive my GC once i join new employer and is it a problem if i get GC before new attorney submits 485J ?
