Default Is anyone enjoying AC21 NOW??

Hello,

It looks like most of the people can use AC21 as their 180 days have passed.Did anyone used it? If not when are you planning to use it? It will be good to share you feelings/thoughts.

My company need to file 140 amendment and I am a July filer. Can I use AC21 before 140 amendment. This amendment is due to company acquired.

will use it, but my 180 days are not yet up; waiting for mid Feb...

Also planning to give my two weeks notice at that 180 day mark. So will stick around for 194 days. Asked current lawyer and he is ok with carrying on with the case if my current employer does not object. Obviously cant bring it up with the employer till the 180 day mark, so dont know whether same lawyer will do, or will need a new one. For now just trying to get and evaluate offers in the market.

actually if you follow the sayings of Buddha, then even death will not free you. There is an endless cycle of life and death.. so in your next birth you are back here again (& unless born in the US, potentially back in the GC queue, and this time with a much later priority date. And NO, you cannot port your PD from your previous birth)

Yeah dude , Thats what I am doing , been with same employer for six long years. Enough is enough. I will ask the current employer not to revoke the 140, I have an approved h1b for new employer for 3 more years anyway.

And also decided not inform USCIS about the job change ,,, I will respond if and when there is RFE.


If things dont work out , ready to go back .I am prepared for that ...

welcome to junk group, is your I-140 approved? If yes, after 180days you can say goodbye to current company, if not, stay with them.
