Timing of priority date transfer request


Recommended Posts

I have an approved I 140 by my previous employer from 2007. (EB2I)

They would like to employ me again but in a higher position - they are doing the labor certification and I 140 process all ovver again.(EB2I)

Lawyer suggested that we apply for transferring PD after the second I 140 gets approved, instead of doing it at the time of applying for second I 140.

Is there any risk or benefit involved in either approach

The current I-140 form asks for details regarding all other I-140 petitions filed for the beneficiary. One will likely also have an easier time getting a priority date transferred if the request is specifically made in the I-140 filing.

Specific legal advice requires consulting directly with an experienced immigration lawyer.
