How a Job Change May Impact My Approved Form I-140 Application?

Hi William,

My employer sponsored Form I-140 application was approved about 2 months ago, can I change job now? How a job change may impact my approved Form I-140 application? and can my employer revoke the approved Form I-140 application?


Ordinarily, the I-140 petitioning employer may send a withdrawal notice to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) at any time. However, once 180 days have passed following approval of the Form I-140 petition, the USCIS will not revoke the I-140 petition solely based on the petitioner’s request for the withdrawal of the petition.

If the USCIS receives the employer’s withdrawal request within 180 days of the I-140 petition approval, the USCIS will revoke the approved I-140. In this situation, the I-140 beneficiary still gets to retain the priority date, unless the revocation was determined to be due to fraud, willful misrepresentation or material error by the USCIS, or the underlying labor certification was invalid or revoked.
