When to file I-485 after I140 approval


Recommended Posts

I have two months before the expiry of my 6th year. my PERM is certified and I140 has been approved. I asked my employer to file I485, but he says I need to wait for the availability of visa. Looking at the visa bulletin for EB2 the PD is nov2004, Should I wait until my PD gets current to apply I-485(EAD) ?

Yes, only when your priority date becomes current I-485 can be filed. Till then with an approved I-140 you can get 3 years H1B extensions.
