Changing employer after I-140 approval - retaining priority date
Per this article:
"Additionally, with regard to retaining priority dates, an I-140 must remain approved for 180 days before a beneficiary becomes entitled to the priority date of his petition for priority date portability purposes. That is, if you have an approved I-140, you will be granted the priority date of that petition only if it has been approved for 180 days, regardless of when or if the I-140 is withdrawn by the employer."
So, if I understand correctly, you cannot port the priority date if u transfer before 180 days of the petition approval, regardless of whether or not your previous employer withdraws it. This is the first time I came across this clause (Source seems reliable). Does anyone have any experiences around this?
