    (a) I am currently in L1 and have a priority date of May 2004 and I am in EB3 category

    (b) I have an approved I-140

    (c) My 485 has not been filed yet

    (d) I just got my H1 approved and it would be effective from Oct 1 2008

    So, if I change my current job from Employer A to Employer B and if Employer B agrees to take over my Green Card Process,

    1) Should I re-file my I-140? (I presume the answer is Yes, but don't want to be a smart a**, wanted to get it clarified to the maximum extent possible)

    2) Will my current Priority Date be carried over? That is, can I re-file my I-140 with my new Employer B with the same priority date of May 2004?

    3) If I can move from Employer A to Employer B and file my new I-140, should this be done asap and before Employer A revokes my current approved I-140?

    4) How much time does it take when I file I-140 with premium processing? (I can probably find this from USCIS website, but wanted to know real-time experiences)

    5) Within how many days of joining my new Employer B should I file my new I-140?

    6) I understand that the Employer A can revoke my I-140 and use my approved labor for any other viable applicant, but I also know that the Labor Substitution concept ceased to exist from July 2007. What is the benefit for my Employer A to revoke the I-140?

    7) Last, but not the least - Should I file for a new labor where I will get a new Priority date and go back to that (god forsaken) square 1?

    Thanks in advance for your time and I am finding it difficult to assimilate the answers from various posts.

    1. yes, you should refile your I-140 . In fact you should start from labor ( to your Q# 7)

    2. You cannot directly file I-140 . you should start from labor, but you can port your eariler PD
    3. Revoking earlier I-140 has noo bearing on new labor / I-140 app, since you are not in I-1485 yet.
    4.there is no premium processing yet for I-140
    5.It has no bearing. Its upto you.
    6. Even if it cannot be used for another person, one genuine reason why employers would want to revoke is to avoid RFEs regarding "Ability to Pay" for other employees they are still sponsoring. By not revoking your I-140, their ability to pay will be reduced by that much amount.
    7. See above

    this is all based on my knowledge of a friend who has gone thru similar process. Please validate with an attorney.

    Hi Stirfries

    I have asked about whether I need to wait for the AP, but my lawyers have said I have to wait until the fingerprinting is done and I have the travel document before I leave..!!! Maybe I need to ring the immigration department again and confirm once again. I keep getting different information from different people..!!

    Thanks for your response, there might be light at the end of the tunnel..!!!

    I don't understand why are you raising this issue in a forum specifically designed to address immigration issues.

    If you need to find a good desi consulting company then you would have to do your own research. After all what would you expect from the A is good and company B is bad!

    You are not going to get a definite answer from this forum! Also, please understand that there are many members here that may not work for desi consulting companies or are desis for that matter. Do your own research and find a company that works for you without soliciting opinions from a forum not designed for such responses!

    My humble 2 cents!

    After years of struggling and 25k down the drain i have decided not to loose my Canadian PR card ( i have been out of canada for 21/2 years out of 5). so to maintain the card i have to be in canada for the next 2 years. so... right now i have an approved I140 based on which i will be filing a
    h1. once i get an approval ( 3 years extension) i will move to my other office in Canada.
    The question i have is, can i come back into the country using this stamping after 2 years staying in canada ? and let us say i dont apply for my h1 but when the SKIL bill (if and whenever it becomes law) can i apply for I485 even though im in canada ( i dont think i can)

    Any help is appreciated

    Should it be the date you last received a valid I-94 at the POE or the date you entered from canada or mexico using AR?

    I guess I should agree with Jerrome because I am going to India 2 weeks from now and My friend who recently had been to India mentioned the same. I have asked the same question to my immigration lawyer, I will post it when I get a reply.

    In mean time I have another question, My flight is from Chicago to Delhi, but I have to take a loacl flight from Miami to Chicago, all my international baggage check in's are at the Miami. My question here is should I surrender the I-94 at Miami since I am doing all my International baggage check in's or should it be in Chicago.

    Please let me know if anybody had this situation.


    Submit the I-94 when you board the flight that leave USA, in your case, Chicago, Not Miami, It is always not advisable to sumbit when you are boarding a connecting, non-Internation flight. For example, what if the International flight is cancelled or you missed, you will be in US, but have already returned your I-94 Also always have copies of all the I-94 for records.

    Hey everyone,

    I am from Florida and just filed my I-485. I went to the DMV yesterday to renew my drivers license and something unexpected happened. They took away my old license and gave a temporary one valid for 30 days. They also said they will have to verify my immigration status and once this is done they will mail my new drivers license. Has anyone had such an experience? How long did it take to get your new license?

    Glad to see your initiatives. But our focus should be different.

    The Economy is in very bad shape. Unemployement is rising. At this moment any bill that ask for GC number increase won't pass. We need to wait for atleast few months.

    In the meantime as a temprory releif we should push the "Country quoto elimination bill" that does not increase GC numbers.

    Also please take a look at my plan that I presented couple of weeks earlier. It is a compromise bill and I feel it has the best chance to pass during lameduck session. My plan gives at least some releif to people waiting for 7 years or waiting for months with PD current.

    Please keep the spirit alive. Thanks.

    You are right. I guess GC for House concept may fly. Guys, think over it!

    The applications that were sent between July 2 and July 17 have been transferred to other service centers. the applications reached during this time period is taking a little longer to process.

    I had 1 year contract for employment and I was not paid regularly. Also they were deducting money for health insurance which I didnot receive.

    So I left company and they didnot pay me money. I had one year contract or 10000 USD fine.

    iI donot work for them since 2005. I have time sheet signed by client and email from vendor to confirm that they paid my money to employer.

    Can i go to labor and complain ? Will they ask me to pay back 10k ?

    Read this case

    You certainly can recover your salary. They cannot ask you to give back 10G because such clause is unlawful and is null.

    So USCIS will never see the flowers becoz they are boxed.. and they will never get delivered becoz they are being routed from the airport itself. No major news media covered the few deliveries at USCIS.. What was the point of the campaign again?

    For those of you who is interested in one line Q/A

    "Is the flower campaign working? Yes"

    "Are we good enough with what we have done? Not 100%"

    What happened

    We were at the loading dock by 10 30 am ( Delivery estimate was between 11 am and 1 pm) and DHL appeared to
    have already delivered around 50 boxes once around 9 am. All the flowers we sent are boxed . The visuals will
    be boxes and not flowers in the evening when the youtube video will be uploaded. UPS delivered nex. We got the
    video of the whole delivery and so did the CNN-IBN/Voice of America folks. There were around 30 boxes or so from
    UPS. Next Fedex delivered and there were around 10-15 boxes coming out. While we were doing the recording one of the
    officers politely told us not to capture federal buildings and we told them that we were only capturing the delivery of
    flowers. After this what ever truck was coming in, they were reversing and pushing back into the dock so that the
    delivery cannot be taped. CNN-IBN reporter asked for permission to go inside the loading dock and she was promptly
    denied any permission. Then We had a down pour for almost 20-30 minutes and we had to leave the place.
    It appears that the S&H dept now knows that most of the flowers are being delivered by DHL/UPS/FEDEX, they are taking
    care of the diversion at National airport it self.

    In the future if any one wants to do a flower campaign, Please select 2 local florists
    (only two florists, in that particular city) and have people call and place orders/online. That way
    we can talk with 2 florists and track their delivery easily for picture/video. Every one who tried to call
    FTD/proflowers had alot of trouble getting any thing out of them. Actually, we cant blame them because they
    are not doing it locally,instead they are putting their orders via national carriers.

    Where do we go from here

    If people really want to go out and get the main stream media attention, DC is the perfect choice. How ever,Don't plan on a weekend. If we do it right, we could be live on TV and the whole country will ask whats going on, along with the law makers. That will offer a platform for solving the issue at its roots.If you really want to do this, Dont come up with reasons like I dont have time off for a day or I have a project due. I can understand if 1 or 2% of our active members say it, but when 98% of our active members say that I can understand what it is. May be its time we figure out whether we prefer anonymity and pontifical verbatim on the online forum to expressing our concern/disappointment openly. Do not get offended and start flaming me. Just my thoughts.

    thanks for the response long is the response time for such cases....

    You may not need to complain to the DOL. just talk on phone with your previous employer (OR Receptionist whoever...) and say that pay me within a week otherwise i'm going to complaint in DOL. Once he get threat of DOL from you, he will call back to you and pay you immediately.

    I had same experience and i used above way.

    Hey guys, can anyone help? I’ve been disconnected from the site for a while due to personal reasons. Does anyone know approximately the following?

    1- Approximate PERM processing times (from filing time) for EB2
    2- Approximate I-485 and I-140 processing times from filing date for EB2
    3- Approximate length of the entire process (from filing PERM to getting I-485 approved) for EB2
    4- Are I-140 and I-485 still being filed concurrently?

    I know there are trackers, but I find them all confusing!

    Sorry for the many questions. This would help me a lot! Thanks in advice for any input guys!

    (or send me a private message if easier, thanks!)

    requested attorney's view he said he would prefer normal way as its better and i can see checks cashing and make that a proof of receipt in case of reciept notice lost

    Sounds like that attorney is complete idiot and never went through eFile things him(her)self...
    Because you paying with CC on eFile and they give you receipt for payment, receipt for filing right away and this is your evidence of reception. In other words, you know your case number from the moment you push the button and with eFile you wil not have such question - where to file. They will deal with that on their own. All other stuff, reception notice, FP appointment notice will come a bit later to address you wil put with forms.

    06-15 02:16 PM
    Will continue contributing at least till guys stuck in the backlog centers get to file their I-140s.
