My employer filed the application for I485 under EB2 category in 2007. At that time my I 140 was in process under the same EB2 category. Later in the year, the I140 was denied. After this, an attorney suggested that I should have filed the application under EB3 category. So we filed a new green card application under EB3. My PERM and I140 got approved under the EB3 category and waiting to file I485.
Now I received a letter from USCIS asking me to go for Finger Printing for the previously filed I485 application under the EB2 category. Also on the letter the Alien# is same as the one on the new approved I140 filed under EB3 category.
Question I have is, do they link the EB3 approved I140 and EB2 I485? I think, they did. Could you please confirm and give me more information on this situation. My attorney says USCIS at one point will connect the dots and deny the EB2 I485 application.
