Approved I140 transferred
 
Hi Everyone,
My I140 which has been approved for more than 4 years now was transferred from Texas to Nebraska.

Trying to find the method in USCIS madness - has this happened to anyone else also and any reason why they might suddenly have decided to do this?

One reason I can think of is my 485s are in NE so maybe they are trying to consolidate all information in one file??

Appreciate peoples inputs.

Same thing happened to me. I had posted it last week. My VSC approved 140 got transferred to TSC last week and today got email that the case is now pending. 485 was orignally filed at VSC that got transfered to TSC in March 2007.
Do you think something is cooking? ;)

what do you think of your employers?
 
is it in any shape size or form possible that you would put your I-140 employer into a bracket of potentially fraudulent companies? or did you have sub labor? anything you can think of that your employer may not have toed the line as far as the law is concerned? i am not suggesting that fraud investigation is the cause of these happenings... i am in fact wondering if that could be the case... if you think your employers were super lawful, then who knows what USCIS is doing!!

The reason for transfer as per email was that the jurisdiction is now TSC But why now? why not transferred along with 485 in 2007?
Orignal poster,
what was your message in email/online status?

I too got the same two mails. First mail on 20 th and last mail on 22 nd.Mine is approved from Texas on JAN 2006.My PD is Nov 2005,but I used only PD to apply I-485.My current AOS is from another company.Did you or your lawyer get any postal mail?

DSLStart 07-29-2009 01:16 PM

No contact with old attorney since I changed job. Do you see any chance of our PD becoming current for next month, hence this activity?

I would be very surprised if it became current in the next month.

update
 
update on my case after I posted...

I called up my previous HR contact from my old company ( I have moved employers using AC21 after getting my EAD ) and she said that the old company was revoking older I140s as their newer ones were getting rejected due to the fact that there were too many I140s already filed by the company.She wasnt sure if my I140 was also revoked.

I spoke to my lawyer and she mentioned that there should be no impact on my case since I moved after my 140 was approved and my 485 was pending for more than 6 months as per AC21 rules.

I also called up USCIS customer service and the lady mentioned that my 485 is pre-adjudicated.

...Now I am not sure if the I140 revocation by my previous company would have any impact on the preadjudicated status of my 485 app. I plan to take a infopass appointment and see if that helps. Will provide updates after my infopass appointment...
