Fellow fish, I Just received notification that my PERM was approved (EB-2, CHINA-mainland born), is there any benefit to choose premium processing for I-140 and pay out of pocket? Can’t file 1-485 yet since priority date is not current

I paid it for peace in mind. You will get approval in 15 days, and then your PD is locked. Also, you can start jumping around once your I140 is approved more than 180 days

I'd pay it. It's an insurance to keep your PD if you end up quitting your current job after 180 days. who knows what willl happen?

I accepted an offer from another consulting firm and my H1B visa has also been transferred. I have not joined the new role yet. However I had been interviewing with another firm and expecting an offer I know this is not the best practice but is it allowed to accept another offer even though H1 transfer has been approved through another employer? If I accept the second offer does this raise any red flags with USCIS as they potentially see 2 almost consecutive visa transfer requests?
