My company lawyers are filing for my I-140 (PERM got Approved – am in EB3 category). They mentioned i can pay $1250 from my pocket (which is legal for I-40) to upgrade the case to Premium Processing
My H1B is valid till mid 2018(6 years), so getting I-140 approved before my H1B 6 years quota should not be a problem.
Is there any other benefits of getting I-140 approved quickly under Premium?
Two other important background points :
- I plan to actively look for a NEW job after March 2016 (after I return back from India). Is there any advantages to getting I-140 Approved BEFORE a Job change?
My priority Date is my PERM filing date, doess I-140 approval have any impact on whether Priority Date can be Ported to New Company ( in understand that PERM etc have to be applied again)
- H4 EAD can be applied after I-140 approval – but my spouse is not interested to work at-least in the next year.
I am sure I am missing something , hence asking for some advise on whether to pay for Premium procession or not.
