Substitute labor issue with priority date


Recommended Posts

Hello, my employer used a substitute labor to file my green card way back in July 2007. The priority date on the substitute labor was Jan 2005 (My I140 mentions the priority date as Jan 2005). During the visa bulletin fiasco of July 2007 my lawyer filed I485 also. I have been having my EAD and advance parole since then. With September 2016 visa bulletin i see that my priority date has become current. When i called USCIS just to confirm on when i will be getting my green card, the officer says they will consider my priority date as July 2007 and not Jan 2005. Is this USCIS officer correct? He also says that it is upto my employer to ask them to consider I140 priority date? I am not sure what to do now. Any thoughts?
