Gurus,
I need to understand the risks correctly.
I am currently on EAD and 485 pending based on EB3 PD of Mar 2004
No longer working for sponsoring employer.

I am thinking of apply in EB2 PERM and I 140 via new employer

Questions:
IF I 140 for newer EB2 labor gets denied then does that impact pending 485?
IF attorny just puts my A# on the EB2 140 application USCIS can link it to my pending 485 and link those 2?

What is safe way here?
I don't have AP as I didn't renew it, (don't have plans to go to India) so CP is out of question?

If EB2 140 gets denied, no impact on your EB3 485
if you write your A# on your 140, then yes, they will be connected.

Does that mean lawyer SHOULD NOT write A# to make sure they aren't linked and no impact of denial on current 485?
or is it even allowed to not write A# even when u have it?

Gurus,

I'm in the same boat and need to understand the risks.

I am currently on EAD and 485 pending based on EB3 PD of May 2003

No longer working for sponsoring employer. Changed jobs and working on EAD with another Fortune 50 company. No plans of leaving the current employer.

I am thinking of apply in EB2 PERM and I 140 via some other company (that i have no intention of joining - say Company A)

Questions:

IF LABOR and I 140 are cleared with Company A (new future employment), WILL I HAVE TO JOIN THE COMPANY IF I GET GREEN CARD THROUGH THEM?

Can i continue to be with my existing PULIC Fortune 50 company?

Many thanks in advance.
