My employment-based green card application is PERM-approved, I-140 pending, and AOS pending. Since I'm going to school and the I-140 isn't portable in this situation. I'm filing a separate marriage-based application. Are there specific procedures to follow? Do I have to tell USCIS I'm going to abandon my first application before I file the marriage-based application? Any tips or advice on this would be very helpful. Thanks!!
Does your employer know about this situation? I would discuss this with them and perhaps save them a little money and let them about your decision. Since they are filing for you, they are in the best position to withdraw the petition.
Once that is resolved I would move forward with your marriage based green card application.

It would be best to have an attorney assist you with the marriage based application. As pointed out by my colleague, your employer can withdraw the petition. I would wait for an evaluation of your marriage based application,
