I had an approved I-140 with my previous employer , he revoked it a month after I left the company , according to internal rumors looks like my current employer is firing most of our team and possible that i'll be one of them.I have one year left on my 2nd term H1B , what are my options ? Any help would be really appreciated
Sorry, the only way that you'll be able to explore your options is to talk to an attorney ... it is beyond the scope of an internet blog like this ... sorry.

I agree with the Professor. I think you need to talk to a a lawyer. An immigration lawyer, if you want urgent advice. This forum cannot offer any specific advice, let alone urgent. We can only offer general comments.
The information contained in this answer is provided for informational purposes only, and should not be construed as legal advice on any subject matter,not should it be viewed as establishing an attorney client relationship of any kind.
Your questions are beyond the scope of a general forum such as this and must thus be posed to an immigration attorney during a paid consultation.
Kindly be advised that the answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
If you are able to find a new job prior to losing your current job, the new employer may be able to file an H-1B transfer for you to request the remaining H-1B time. A new labor certification would be needed as soon as possible. A change of status to another type of visa may also be an option. You should definitely consult with a qualified immigration attorney before anything happens to your current job. Waiting until after the employment is terminated will make it much more difficult.
As everyone else has said, this is a very difficult situation which requires more personalized advice.
Are you sure your previous employer revoked your I-140?
My response is not to be construed as creating an attorney-client relationship and it is not offered as legal advice. Hopefully, this discussion will steer you in the right direction if you choose to hire an attorney.
