I-485 Interfile vs Refile New Application? (Employment based)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My priority date is July 2014. I have both EB 2 and EB 3 I-140 approvals

  • I-485 application filed in Oct 2020 under EB 3 with a new I-140 application. EB 3 I-140 approved 7 months ago.
  • My employer has agreed to interfile on June 1st 2022 to move from EB 3 to EB 2 as my priority date becomes current.
  • I am interested in knowing if there are any advantages or disadvantages to filing a NEW EB 2 application in conjunction with interfiling.

I would be responsible for paying all the fees for a new application so I am wondering if it is worth spending that money?

Thank you.
