View Full Version : PERM approved. But job grade and location changed

05-02-2014, 10:32 PM
My current visa status is H1B. My company filed my PERM in Idaho. Before the PERM was approved, I was promoted to a manager (E4 to M1) and transferred to California. My paralegal is aware of this change and recently made an amendment to my H1B. My H1B is extended as an employee in California. Just today (3 moths after I moved to CA), I found out that my old PERM is approved. Although it is approved, is it valid? Can my attorney apply for I-140 on behalf of me? What options do I have?

To use the existing PERM and file a 140 (and 485) based on it, your employer must agree and state that you will be working in IA after your GC is approved. You will actually HAVE TO work in IA at least for 6 months after your GC is approved unless you use AC21 to switch job after your 485 is filed
