Hi Pearl, This is Gloria. I am a question regarding with changing job type after 140 is approved. My PD date is Jan 2016 and my 140 is going to be approved in July. If I change my job from hardware engineer to software engineer at the end of this year with a new company, can I still keep my pd date? Thank you!
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Just asked my lawyer working on my green card
application. They said yes. But talked to another lawyer who says it is hard to say. That lawyer said that the new software engineer job need to have somehow similarity with the hardware engineer job to keep the pd date. And I need to submit a new perm for the software engineer job and it can't be guaranteed whether the previous pd date can be kept or not.
JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?
Customer: H1b, pending applications on 140 now
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Can the previous employer revoke my green card application after I change the job? Will that affect my pd? Is there a time frame restriction for the revoke? Thank you!
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Immigration
Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
