QUESTION: I am on H1B have approved I-140.If i change my employer can i port my priority date?
ANSWER: Yes. The priority date may be ported if you are changing employer.

QUESTION: When i transfer h1b, do i get 3 yr extension by using approved I-140 from my current employer.
ANSWER: Yes. The I-140 and the H1B have no relation to each other, other than to provide you a basis for an extension past 6 years. But the I-140 is for a future job offer, so the employers do not necessarily have to be related or the same.

QUESTION: What if my employer just inform USCIS i have left company is this revocation of i-140?
ANSWER: No. Informing them, alone, is not a revocation. However if they informed the USCIS that they no longer wish to sponsor the I-140, that is a revocation.

If my employer withdraw or revoke i-140 still can i port my PD? get 3 yrs extension after 6 yrs?

Expert:  Expert James replied 4 years ago.
If the I-140 is revoked, you can still port the priority date.

If you are not the recipient of an approved I-40, then you are not eligible for the 3 year extension. If you get the extension before the I-140 is revoked, then you can continue on the extension.

If the I-140 is withdrawn or revoked before the H1B extension is requested or before another I-140 is approved, then you are not eligible for the extension.

Expert:  Expert James replied 4 years ago.
Not if it is revoked. If it is revoked, you no longer have an approved I-140.

I am confused you mean to say

If the I-140 is revoked, I can still port the priority date. But not get 3 yr extension.

 

Expert:  Expert James replied 4 years ago.
The H1B has no relation to the I-140 except that the approved I-140 can make you eligible for a 3-year extension of the H1B.

Yes, if the I-140 is revoked, you can port the priority date. But if it is revoked, you cannot get an H1B extension past the 6th year, UNLESS you get another I-140 approved first.
