csriram45 is on a distinguished road
Default I-140 approved but not recd?

Hello,

I am currently working for a leading retail company in the US. I filed for my 485 in July 2007 and is pending. The retail company acquired my smaller company and as result had to file for 140 again in 2008. In March 2009 my I-140 was approved and I recd. an email that it was approved and the notice was sent.

Since the I-140 is mailed to the employer, I asked them for a copy of the same. Initially they refused saying it is an employer petetion and after I requested again they said they will provide a copy when the receive it.

It is June now and they claim they have still not recd. it. They are saying they will have to request another one and due to budget constraints they are not going to request one as it costs money. Is this true that you have to spend money again to request a copy if you never recd. it? How much does this cost? Without the copy i do not know what priority date is mentioned.

Suppose in future i want to switch jobs, I would like to know if I need to have a copy of 140 if I want to use AC21?

What are my choices as at this point company says that they have the petetion # and they can use that for any purpose and will not request a copy. This seems a little odd to me.

any help is appreciated.

If you have the receipt no for I-140, you can request it by FOIA

If you do take FOIA route, it will take at least 8-10 months to get the documents. So, better do it ASAP.
