need help on change the postdoc after the approval of I-140


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

I have concern on filling the I-485 myself after the approval of the I-140.

I have applied under the NIW. I recently moved to another postdoc at another university (different from the previous postdoc at the initial university). The topics of both previous postdoc and the current want are pretty similar.

Does this change cause any problem for me? Do I need to make a cover letter and stating this change to the USCIS? DO I need to ask a lawyer to file for me just because of this issue?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Generally, an NIW petition is approved for work in a particular area. And so the approval of such a petition is generally not job specific. However, when someone has a concern about the continuing validity of such an approval it is usually a good idea to consult with an attorney who can provide specific legal advice as such issues can arise and be looked at during I-485 processing.
