Approved i140 from 2014, no I485 filed.. Job Change?


Recommended Posts



Couldnt find anything in regards to situation where i140 is approved and approved since 2014 (over 2 years now) PD being feb 2013.. My employer did not file i485 since date isint current.


I have the approval notice(thanks to foia) - My employer wont share any details on date with me as he is trying to hold me by saying I will cancel your 140 once u leave etc.. 


My question:


My i140 is approved since 2014 (over 2 years) - passing 180 days

I485 is not filed.

I am planning to make a transfer and go a big consulting firm (pwc) and hoping they can get 3 year extension..

When they start my GC process and everything is clear.. can we use old approval date here? Everywhere I am getting details like only if you have both i140 and i485 filed this is possible.. no where i saw that if you only have approved 140 you can do it!


Any advice?


Thanks for your time.
