Hello, i work under h1b visa for a pharmacy that has 2 locations. But apparently these locations are separate companies. Now they want to close the one i am working in after we just started the green card process for me. I am asking if there is a way to transfer to the other location without having to start the green card process all over again.

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
