  • Spelling correction in an approved I-140

    Hello All

    I have got my I-140 approved more than a year ago from my previous employer under EB3 and the spelling of my last name is incorrect in it. I did not get it corrected since my employer told me that it can be corrected at the time of 485 filing.

    Now I have changed my employer and want initiate an EB2 processing and like to use the same priority date as given in my approved EB3 I-140 (where the spelling of my last name is incorrect). I just needed to know do I need the spelling on my approved I-140 corrected. If yes, then what would be the process because my previous employer does not want to help me on this since I am no longer working for him.

    Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

    Try calling up USCIS and ask them for name correction. I'm assuming, it was filed under the correct name in the i140 application and you should get a corrected approval within 30 days. Keep the tracking number provided by USCIS.

    I'm not a lawyer, this is a suggestion. Pl talk to the attorney for further clarification.
