I am on my 7th year of H1. I have approved I140, but employer will not give approval copy of receipt copy of 140. I just have the receipt number for 140.
Is the receipt number sufficient for the new employer for filing extension?
Once my new H1 gets approved, and I submit my resignation, what if current employer revokes 140? My 485 is still not filed. What will be the consequences for that?
No, am afraid case receipt number alone is not enough. The actual I-140 approval notice on Form I-797 must be attached to the the new H-1B petition. You will then get an approval for 3 more years (if your new H-1b will be deemed approvable on its merits.
If current employer will end up revoking the I-140 you'll have nothing to worry about, as long as your new EMPLOYER'S H-1B petition goes through and is quickly approved, which will give you 3 more H-1B years. The fact that the I-140 will later be revoked wont change that. You will then have the new employer file a new PERM on your behalf and can claim the first PERM's priority date .
