In an employment-based case your priority date is fixed upon approval of the I-140. If you change employers after the filing of a labor certification but before the filing of the I-140, then you will not be able to keep the old priority date, since the I-140 will not be approved.
In addition, even if the I-140 is approved, and you keep the old priority date forever, your new employer would need to file a new I-140 for you if you have not already filed your I-485. It is not enough to merely file the I-485 when the priority date becomes current.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
