Immigration Lawyer, Woburn

ac21 portability

An individual who has an employment-based green card application pending with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") for more than one hundred eighty (180) days may be able to change the job or employer on which their I-140 petition is based.

This portability provision does not apply if the I-140 petition is withdrawn before one hundred eighty (180) days or USCIS denies or revokes the I-140 approval.

In order to port from one employer to another, an adjustment applicant must demonstrate that the new employment is in the "same or similar" occupational classification. Applications may be approved even if there has been career progression and/or an advance in wages.
