New H1 with approved I-140

Recommended Posts

I am in sixth year of H1 but my current employer not filing GC. I have a I-140 approval from my previous employer on EB2 category. It was approved on May 2012 but I left the company on oct 2012 which is less than six months period. 


My questions are:


* Will I be able to obtain a new H1 with a new company X providing I-140 approval from my previous company Y?


* Six months association after I-140 with company Y is mandatory? where it helps?


* How do I check If my previous company Y did not revoke my I-140. I check the status in USCIS today it still shows that the approval notice sent on May 2012 statement. Does that mean it was not revoked?


* will I be able to join the previous employer Y and continue the GC process?


Please advice.

Yes, you can get 3 years extensions beyond 6 years on H1B with employer X using an approved I-140 from employer Y.


Looks like it is not revoked but confirm with employer Y.

Yes with an approved H1B petition.

1. Probably. Talk to a lawyer first.

2. You are talking about some urban myth here. There is no obligation to ever work for a company that just sponsored you on I-140.

3. That's why you need to talk to a lawyer.

4. If they take you - sure.

1. You can get 3 year extensions if the I-140 is not revoked by that time.


2.  Not mandatory or required.


3. Possibly. Best way is to ask them.


4. It is up to Y and hence you should ask them.
