time limit to file I485

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I read that there is a new rule that says one needs to file Green Card application "within" 1 YR of date being current.

Because of some unforeseen circumstances I could not file 485 with my old employer. My priority has been current for the last 3 yrs now...

The employer is ready to help me now and they also kept the I140 alive.

Can I still file my 485 with the employer using their I140 ?

Thank You,

Rakesh

Its a fairly dated article on Murthy but believe it still applies as USCIS has no such limitation mentioned on their website

If there is any such new rule, please publish the link where you read this 1-year time limit for everyone's benefit
