I'm on L-1A...Employer files for an I-140 (in EB-1)...I get the I-140 approval....I get laid off.....I join a 2-year MS program (on F1) in US.....Post MS, an employer willing to file H1-B hires me.....New employer files for my I-140 (in EB-2).

At this point, does my new I-140 priority date remain intact from first approved I-140?

The first employer’s I-140 date will remain valid if you leave that job after 180 days of I-140 approval notice date.

You can use the priority date from first I-140 only if:
- the second job is in the same category as the first job
- the second GC application is filed under the same category (EB1, EB2, etc.) as the first one

Dont think you can move to F1 after I140 because F1 needs non immigrant intent but you have shown that you do by previously filing for I140. Check with attorneys before going too far down this path

Haha - I wish I knew the answer but I'd check with an attorney. It really depends on if you can convince the consular that you want to return

My PERM should hopefully be approved within the next 2 months. My fiance and I were planning to get married within the next 12 months. Assuming we do not have a preference of *when* to get married and we both have H1-B, would it be a good idea to get married before moving to the next phase of the GC process (i.e, I-140) so that I can list him as a dependent? Trying to evaluate pros and cons (if any).
