    Answered . I would suggest you to contact with your new employer attorney who can guide through the process but you have to file for Perm and then when you will file for I 140 in cover page your employer's attorney should request to retain a priority date from your previous I 140

    Answered . You should first speak to the attorney who handled your I-140 or the employers attorney. If your current company has no attorney then the new company that hires you should have an attorney to assist you.
