I-140 approved under EB1EA. I-485 in process. Switching job.

Recommended Posts

My situation:

I-140 approved under EB1-EA on Jan 23,2013

I-485 has been filed at Texas service center for my wife and I in week of Feb 25

USCIS has encashed my checks today (March 4) so I know my case has been received

In Feb I interviewed with a firm in California and got a job offer from them. I have not accepted the offer yet.

I am not able to make a informed decision if I should move from Texas to California for job while my wife continues with her MBA at Dallas. I am concerned about impact on I-485 process that just got started.

It will be very helpful if you can advice me. Here are some questions in my mind:

- Should I wait for EAD/GC and then switch job?

- If I switch, can my wife and I be in different cities (She-Dallas, TX; I - Santa Clara, CA) during I-485 process?

- If I switch, what paperwork I need to send to USCIS?

- If I switch, will my case move to some other service center (Currently it is filed at Texas service center)? If so, where?

- If I switch, will my wife's case continue at Texas service center or will it move to same service center as mine?

- Finally, Am I risking my GC by switching jobs during I-485?

I really appreciate your inputs.

Thank you in advance.

Update: Got ASC letter today. Biometrics appointment - 3/25.

I hope to receive EAD by second/third week of April. Is it safe to quit job after EAD and before I get GC?
