    Filing Supplement J, staying without work on EAD, H-1B denial effect on I-485


    Video Transcript

    1. Usually if you do an H-1B transfer or if the I-140 is revoked that becomes their source of knowledge.

    2. Absolutely, the regulations only require that when asked, you should be able to produce an offer of employment for the same or similar job and file Supplement J. This is only when asked.

    3. If you have a I-485 pending you are always allowed to stay in the United States, but make sure that you have an EAD.

    4. Normally an H-1B denial has no effect on the Adjustment of Status I-485. FAQ in detail...

    3. At this point you should talk to a lawyer.  FAQ in detail...

    Video Transcript

    You can always go up and you can always go down as long as your PERM was filed as an EB-2. If you filed your PRM as an EB-3 then you're not going to be able to upgrade to EB-2. But if your PERM was filed as an EB-2 you can downgrade I-140 EB-3. You can go back upgrade to EB-2 if you already have an EB-2 approval. You can file a downgrade second case as EB-3 with the same PERM. FAQ in detail...

    Video Transcript:

    1. I think you should be comfortable as long as your I-485 revocation does not get triggered off.

    2.  Well, first of all when you are outside the United States you do not need an EAD. Second as long as you have a permanent job offer it shouldn't matter whether it is the same employer or some other employer as long as you are protected by AC21 portability. Hence you have a lot of flexibility. Talk with your lawyers, make sure if a Supplement J is available now. The fact that you are working from outside the United States is completely irrelevant.
