I have a approved I-140 with company A. It is a substitute labor.
I am getting laid off end of the month and I have a new offer from company B.
Can I port priority date of this I-140 to new company B? Does porting work for substitute labor also?

Thanks

once 140 is approved, one can port the PD. Doesn't matter whether it was LC SUB or not. My personal understanding, check with a lawyer.

However this practice is long gone (discontinued since second quarter of 2007) and no more LC SUB is allowed.

I am wondering, I assume that you must have done this prior to second quarter of 2007, then you may have also filed 485 based on this 140.

Not a legal advice, contact a good immigration attorney.
