I am on H-1B and my employer (A) filed my green card application under EB-2. My priority date is 09/2014. My EAD is approved and now valid until 08/2025. Employer filed adjustment of status (AoS) application in 10/2022 when final dates were current and my AoS application is pending with USCIS.
Recently, my employer was acquired by another company (B). I was told my new employer (B) will file I-140 amendment to reflect the new employer name (B) as petitioner. The amendment will not alter any info (category, priority date) on approved I-140. I intend to use EAD instead of being on H-1B and would like to pursue other job opportunities.
If I leave my current employer (B), would there be any impact on my pending green card or Adjustment of Status application or have any other implications in the below scenarios?
- I switch to another employer before my current employer (B) files I-140 amendment application or before the I-140 amendment is approved
- I switch to another employer after the I-140 amendment is approved but before 180 days are passed and my current employer (B) revokes I-140 amendment. 3. Is 180-day rule applicable for I-140 amendment when AoS is pending with USCIS?
Appreciate your response.
