I just got my I140 few months ago. If I change my employer
Hi,I just got my I140 few months ago. If I change my employer now, will I lose my I140 and my priority date? If yes, when can I change my employer without losing my I140 and my priority date?I'm in my 5th year of my H1b, and my wife is working on H4. Per my understanding, I will need my I140 valid to continue working in the US after 6 years of H1b, and my wife's work permit under H4 needs I140 as well.Thanks,Lance

I'm waiting PERM labor certificate to get approved and
I'm waiting for my PERM labor certificate to get approved and it usually takes 6months, after that I'll apply for me and my wife for I-140 and after that for I-485 for adjustment of the status to get the green Card. In addition,I am from Libya and My wife is Libyan as well ,but she was born in U.K and the spelling of her last name on her Libyan passport is different from the spelling of her last name on her birth certificate. She is thinking to go back to libya to correct her passport and get a new one with the correct spelling because we are afraid that will be facing a problem when we apply for the green card. My question is, is that a good idea and do you think she will face a problem when she apply for a new H4 visa in the consulate ? Any other advices ???
Guillermo, On the Trade Agreement Supplement Form to I-129
FOR GUILLERMOHi Guillermo,On the Trade Agreement Supplement Form to I-129 it asks at part 3 whether the petitioner is a US Employer or a Foreign Employer. Since the owner of the Company is foreigner, should we consider the employer as a foreigner? Or since the company is established in the US, should we consider the Employer as a US Employer?Also, where can I put my wife's information as a dependent on I-129 form. I cannot see any spot to put dependent's name, last name etc.Thanks

Madam, I am on H1B visa and I have 140 approved from myView more immigration law questions
Dear Sir/Madam,I am on H1B visa and I have 140 approved from my current employer. My wife also working on H1B and she also has 140 approved through her employer. Since my H1B is expiring on Dec 2016, insteady of extending H1B, i would like to convert my H1 to H4/EAD. After getting H4 EAD, I will continue working for my current employer.My question is, once I move to H4/EAD, in future if I need to come back to my H1B using approved I140, is it possible? Or do I need file for new H1B and go through the H1B quota?
