Watch the Video on this FAQ:

Consequences of losing my job on H-1B and revocation of I-140

 

Video Transcript:

The moment the I-140 is revoked nobody can take away your priority date. The only time priority date can be taken away is if the I-140 was approved in error or through fraud. On the other hand, once the I-140 has been approved and stays approved for 180 days not only do you keep your priority date, you also keep the right to keep extending your H-1B beyond six years with any employer. So180 days is a great time to wait. These regulations changed on January 17th, 2017. Any cases that occurred after that date would have to go by these regulations. FAQ in detail...
