I got my I140 ported from Eb3 to Eb2 but the approval notice still shows new date of 2012 and not 2009. Few queries :-

1) Lawyer said they indicated to use the old priority date. So can this be a mistake from USCIS. How can I verify if Lawyer really indicated that in application OR shd ask where does lawyer indicate that.

2) How to resolve the issue to get it changed to old priority date .

Thanks much,
Archana

hire a better lawyer and have them send a letter with the details

Ideally the main letter sent by lawyer, besides the usual stuff, should contain
- old copy of approved I-140
- a formal request that please "retain old priority date"

USCIS will surely capture the old PD.
If the mistake is done by USCIS or even the lawyer, the lawyer can write another letter to USCIS requesting the correction.

I have read cases, where USCIS has fixed this.
