I have an approved I-140 from my current employer. I-140 Approval date was on July2014. My Priority date is July 2012.
I am joining new Employer currently, will my new Employer would able to port my July2012 priority date if my Old employer withdraws my approved I-140?
Yes, you will be able to "recapture/transfer/re-use" that original July 2012 priority date in any future PERM/I-140 that a new employer will file on your behalf, whether or not "withdrawn" by your ex-employer. Does not change anything if ultimately withdrawn.
