My PD is Jan 2010 in EB2, and my I485 is pending with a current EAD/AP. I am planning on moving jobs for the first time after my AOS is filed in 2012. Need advice on how soon(after joining) should I file Supplement J. Company offering wants to file after an year of employment.
First, has your I-140 been approved? I am assuming it has, but it must before you file for portability. If it has been approved, the I-485J can be submitted at any time. The benefit to filing it earlier is that you will get a decision about whether your request meets the portability requirements before the I-485 is finally adjudicated. Don't be afraid to ask the employer for their reasoning behind wanting to wait- this is your future and you don't want to end up in a bad situation that will destroy what you have been working towards for the past 8 years! If you feel like they are being shady about it, walk away!
