If this is not a good scenario, are the alternatives or options?
You will have to pay a visit to an immigration attorney who will provide you with an answer after having reviewed the entire file and found answers to at least the following questions:
1. Was your I485 filed based on properly acquired I-140 petition
2. Was that petition based on a bona fide offer of employment
3. Was the I485 pending for at least 180 days prior to the termination of your employment
4. Do you have a new valid offer of same or similar employment, including self employment option in the same or similar occupation. Good luck and select wise to find an experienced attorney in this time of law.
An alien who has applied for adjustment of status based upon an approved employment based petition may port to a new employer provided the application for adjustment of status has been pending for more than 180 days and the new job is substantially similar to the one in the approved petition. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for more information.
