    Job portability on I-140

    Hi,

    I am currently on my 7th year of H1B. I have an approved I-140 for about a year now with priority date of May-2015. My current H1B expires in 6 months. I am planning to switch from my current company A to a new company B who are saying that they will start my GC only after a year.

    1. When I do H1B transfer to company B do I get H1B for 6 months or 3 years.
    2. Will I lose my priority date if my Company A revokes my I-140 during this 1 year.
    3. If I switch to Company C say in about 10 months of being in company B and company C also has the same clause that I need to be there for about 1 year before they start my GC process, will that risk my GC process or priority date, do I need to wait in company B till I have my I-140 before moving over to company C.

    Appreciate all the help !

    1. The 6 months rule does not apply unless you have an I-485 filed
    2. Make sure the company does not cancel your I-140 before transfer otherwise your transfer might not happen.
    3. You can keep priority date.

    We recommend that before you transfer you call us at 510 7425887 for a consultation. If you make a mistake you might not be able to stay in the USA.
