Changed Job After Filing Of NIW, Do I Have Any problem For I-485 Petition?

Dr. William:

I filed a self-petitioned NIW in CSC last May. Thereafter, I changed job and working in New York City area. I just know that my self-petitioned case was approved. I am wondering where I should submit my I-485? CSC or VSC?

I have heard the freedom of changing jobs for NIW if you are working in the same field. Since I changed job after filing of NIW, do I have any problem for I-485 petition?


Answer:

Since you are not working the same position that you were in when the NIW was filed, it is very possible that the USCIS will ask you to file a new I-140. If you file for I-485 adjustment, you must file with the USCIS center which covers the place where you now live, in your case, it is VSC.

Also, you should be prepared to file a new NIW petition, since most USCIS adjudicators regard a change in employer as invalidating the original NIW approval (It depends on the individual officer).
