Can anyone educate me on documents needed to transfer my h1b with i140 . How long does it typically take to transfer my i140 from my current employer to new employer. Any potential issues to be aware off

    You cannot 'transfer' your I-140 to another employer unless you applied in a self+petitioned class (EB1A or NIW). In those cases, your I-140 pretty much goes with you wherever you go. Anything else will require a fresh perm and I-140, unless your I-485 has been pending for 180 days

    So my priority date is gone? Or they need to do a new i140 to retain my priority date

      Your PD is fine if your I-140 has been approved for 180 days. But you need another approved I-140 before your PD is current to file for AOS
