H1B transfer after I140 approved


Recommended Posts


I have my I140 approved in December 2014 with my current employer. But, I got a full time offer from my Client. I have already used 6 years of my H1B. Can I do a H1B transfer to this new Client even if my current employer withdraws my I140. Also, my spouse is on H4 EAD,  Can she continue on H4EAD if my current employer withdraws my I140 ? How safe is it to change my employer at this point?

Your current employer cannot withdraw the I140. The time has passed. Its for you to keep.

You can transfer the H1 based on I140. You will get a 3 years extension. Your wife will also get a new H4EAD valid until your new petition.

However, you will have to redo your GC process from scratch which may take 1-2 years to get to this state with your new employer.
