I am an Adjustment of Status (AOS) applicant based on a

Hi,I am an Adjustment of Status (AOS) applicant based on a approved I-140 petition.I have applied for I-765 (EAD) renewal which is pending. It's been more than 100 days since I have applied for EAD renewal and I am expecting approval / further action anytime soon.I am also moving to a new home on Monday, June 27th. After I move, I would not have access anymore to the mailbox in my current (and soon to be old) home. The thing I am worried about now if USCIS approves my application before I move, it would be sent to the old address, potentially to which I would no longer have access to.What should I do in this case? Shall I go ahead and pro-actively change my address with USCIS even before I move? That way, even if USCIS sends any mail I will get it after I move there. Or should I wait till I actually move? Any other thoughts?Thanks!

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
