Approval of I-140

Question details

My I-140 has been approved. My company is working on the getting the green card done. My question is can I quit my job with my current company and get a job in a new state and a new company? Does this affect the status of the green card application. Any idea of how long will it take after this step.

ANSWER

CHANGING EMPLOYER WITHOUT I-140 APPLICATION
If a person changes employers without ever applying for I-140, they can carry NOTHING forward to the next employer. They have to start their labor certification all over again with the new employer.

WHAT IF I-140 IS DENIED
The PD cannot be transferred

CHANGING EMPLOYER AFTER I-140 APPROVAL

If a person has received an I-140 approval through an employer, the priority date then belongs to him or her, unless the I-140 is revoked for reasons of fraud. The old employer can withdraw I-140, but the applicant will still be able to retain the Priority Date.  Please review the latest information on this topic:  Priority Date Can Be Carried Forward Even if Old I-140 is Revoked (Unless Fraud or Misrepresentation) –July 7, 2012
