Porting Priority date from old employer to new employer.
 I have few concerns porting priority date from older employer to newer employer.
First PERM was filed on 2013 with employer A. PERM approved but I-140 denied. Second PERM was filed in 2016, PERM approved and I-140 approved as well. Quit employer A few years after i-140 approval.
Employer B about to file for PERM, i wanted to clarify few point before i initiate new process.

As i understand i can extended by H1-B on the approved I-140 for as long as my priority date is not current. Post which i have to file for new GC from Employer B.

1. Since i had one I-140 denial, if my I-140 from new employer get denial would i lose my old priority date i.e 2016 ? if so, how i can avoid that from happening
2. How long i can continue to extend my H1-B on old approved I-140.
3. Can i use my first priority date i.e 2013 in any case.

Thanks & Regards

Using an earlier priority date for EB-2 application
I filed an I-140 under the EB-1 category for myself and so far I've got a receipt notice with a priority date of 10 Nov 2021. At the same time, my employer is preparing my EB-2 application; I have been informed that they will file for the labour certification soon.

The question is, should I ask them to use the 10 Nov 2021 priority date mentioned above while filing for the labour certification?

I know this kind of reuse of priority dates is permissible in some categories, but for EB-2 the USCIS website states the priority date as the date "DOL accepts the labor certification application for processing." ( So I'm not sure if my priority date can be reused and if it's worth the potential friction when my employer finds out I jumped the gun and filed my own EB-1 application.

I-140 amendment for location change
My I-140 got approved last year March 2020 with Priority Date Sep 2019. On my approved petition the Work Site Location has my company headquarters location New Jersey instead of my work location in Florida. Now my employer mentioned they need to do I-140 amendment for updating the correct location. Can someone clarify my questions
1) Is the processing time for amendment is same as normal I-140.
2) After amendment approval, can i change my employer or do i need to wait for 180 days.

Any suggested much appreciated.

Case approval was certified
I got a change to my i140 case status as " case approval was certified and sent to appropriate appellate authority and that office will send you final decision."

Does anyone know what exactly this means?

EB1C I-140 Appproved
Hi All,

Sharing my experience with I-140 processing:
1. December 15, 2020 - Attorney submitted I-140 petition
2. February 23, 2021 - Receipt notice with 12/15/2020 priority date
3. July 15, 2021 - I-140 approved

I-140 was processed by Texas Service Center

Luckily did not receive any RFE, these were anxious months as the processing timelines at TSC for EB1C processing was 9 - 24 months but received approval in exactly 7 months.

Good luck to all who are waiting for approval, it will come hang tight.

Pending I-140 and Consular processing confusion! Kindly suggest
My cousin has filed for I-140 for EB1-A and is in the US but opted for Consular processing as he plans to leave for his home country in 2021. Unless the final action date is current they won’t process the green card in consular processing in one's home country. But one question what if dates for filing for EB1 A become current and one is in the US but opted for consular processing? What happens then? Can one submit all documents for consular processing when the dates for filing becomes current from the US? And instead of a previously opted place for an interview (home country) can one change that later?

Would appreciate a prompt response.
Thank you!
