Transfer h1b with i140

Dec 2

So I am switching employers on an approved i140 and since the premium processing is suspended what happens if my current employer revokes my i140 by the time UsCIS sees my application. Will my h1b be denied. Although I doubt they will revoke but still wanted to check

    Wait till 180 days that you will be away from that challenge, again I heard big tech companies don’t spend time on revoking things they don’t have that much time or resources on that, in your case you crossed 180days

      Its true my attorney also told me that my company never revoks the i140 but it also depends on manager if you leave company on very very bad terms they can revoke

      That way I am lucky coz my manager is super nice and we have great relationship m also it's just one week I feel like the lawyers will take more than that to actually prepare the documents and file for revoking it

    Technically nobody revokes I140 unless you've really screwed up the relationship

    No, i140 will be revoked by the company as you are no longer employed with the same company but you maintain the i140 status. Next company will have to file perm/i140 again and you maintain your priority date as before. If you have a dependent on h4 ead, they will be unaffected during transition if you stay over 180 days. Revoking i140 from previous company is not out of malice but to inform uscis that you are no longer with the company as it has details of you being employed with that particular orga ization

      This is completely wrong. H1 is revoked when u leave a company, not i-140.

    Yep right. Revoking i140 in one week is bizzare though

    @op, i am assuming you will be joining your new company on h1b transfer receipt and not actually approved h1b transfer, right?

    Why don’t you just wait 180 days to be sure? For June 28 approval you just need to wait until Dec 25 to give 2 week notice.

    Yeah but I have seen employers don't bother doing that. Also I checked with ppl from my company who moved and they confirmed that their i140 was not revoked and it's still approved

    Coz I guess it sort of gives u a bad name in front of USCIS

    Ohh right. So my i140 was approved on 28th June. So if I switch jobs say on 17th and considering that last 2 weeks of December are dead weeks will I be ok or shud I wait till 28th so stressful

    If you stay with current company for 180 days after i140 is approved , they cant revoke your i140
