Separately, would you advise that we file for resignation once we can electronic approval? Or should we wait for the physical document? What's the risk of doing the former?

like

Not true physical approvals get lost all the time and you can’t do an I-9 without the physical approval

I feel you. If you get the application receipt for your new employer, you can technically give your notice. It’ll give you time to recharge and no amount of money can compensate for that.

However, if you want to avoid the anxiety and stress, give your 2 week notice after the approval and push your joining date by your desired interval. This will help you get some time in between.

Your current employer is required to withdraw your H1B once you’re done working there, and if this happens before the transfer is finalized, you lose your transfer. Don’t quit.

Not true. You have 60 days regardless of what your previous employer does

Same boat. Two offers in hand and waiting for h1b transfer. Joining in jan and just three more working weeks

like

Former is fine as sometimes it takes time to get physical document in hand but if you have time you can wait just for sake of getting things in hand before you start!! You have to get I-9 verified & updated before completing 3 days of employment

Just take time-off/PTO. Also, holidays are coming…

Don't resign based on receipt. What if you get rfe for some reason, you can obviously still work for your new employer but will be under tremendous stress.
More over with holidays coming in chill!

In the same boat.

I was in the same boat. Got an offer in Nov 2020 but my visa transfer approval didn’t go through until March 2021. So you can do it!

Love that for you.

Filing an H1B extension soon - I’ve heard not to file it in premium processing because everyone’s getting RFE’s. Thoughts?

Received my biometrics appointment notice today! EB3, I-485 filed at the end of Oct. Can someone tell me when is the medical/health exam needed? In the instruction my lawyer sent, the next step is to receive the EAD card, and no mention of medical exam. But I heard lots of others mentioned they needed to do the medical exam before the interview?

My lawyers are ready to file my I-140 with premium processing. They are suggesting to do concurrent filing for I-485.

I’ve heard submitting I-485 after I-140 approval is getting adjudicated quickly through NBC. Is it a fact or just some hearsay?

Please share your experience or suggestions. I’m very confused how to proceed.
