Default Is it worth to file under EB2 now

Hi,
My priority date is Feb'2006 (EB3-I). Per my earlier requests, my company is now considering filing new application under EB2. Based on the fact that EB2 is retrogressed to Sept'1st-2004, is it now even worth trying to port to EB2? I know it is hard to predict the movement but I just want to hear your thoughts. For this second filing I need to pay from my pocket and the filing is with the same company so there is a cost and risk both involved

Thanks.

Unless some pro-immi bill goes through, EB3i is dead in the water for a long time. You are way off with EB3I PD. Porting to EB2 is the best decision you can take now.

As others have already said, go ahead and file in EB2. It is definitely worth it.

Were you able to port to EB1 (or EB2) ? If so, what was your experience.

One of the RFE questions I faced in my I-140 application was to prove that the company was paying all the costs and that was not being passed onto the employee. We had to provide my complete financial picture (list of all accounts with statements from the time we started the GC process internally which was a year before we filed the first ad), a credit report, a chex systems report as part of the evidence to make our case. You want to be very very careful in paying for costs.

I guess this is a good and +ve development from USCIS. Lot of companies demand fees from employees for this. This act would curtail it, if not eliminate completely.

This is very good move by USCIS. It must be made like random checks for every application now. It will help reduce fraud and exploitation. Why should an employee pay from pocket for the company to find his American Citizen replacement? This is kind of fraud and must be stopped.
