I-140 premium and job change


Recommended Posts

Need help with some basic question. I have come to US in 2011 on L1B, had to leave US due to denial of extension in Aug 2014. Fortunately, had applied for L-H conversion, got through lottery, came back last month on H-1B, is valid till Sep 2016. Meanwhile, my GC application was filed in EB2 in March this year, got PERM approved last month.


1. Should I file my I-140 in normal or premium (I will have to pay for premium)? What is the benefit for me to file in Premium.

2. Change of Job - will I be able to change my job after I-140 approval or does I485 also needs to be filed before I can think of job change? As I understand, I cannot apply for I-485 till my date is current, which could be another 5 years....does that mean I cannot change my job till then?
