You can definitely take an LOA or sabbatical (if L1 allows which I’m sure it does). At this point, anything that allows you to survive 1Y (or less) without quitting until you get the GC

If not a job change, can intake a sabbatical, can I go back to school, can I take another kind of leave of absence?

Take a LOA?

When was your I40 approved? If that was date x and date y is your I485 receipt date, you can leave for a new job on a date that > 180 days from both date x and y (assuming you get your EAD card by then). Look up AC21 portability. Hang in there, I was in the same boat and left on the first day after day 180.

Pwc1 - did you tell the new employer what the situation was? How did it work to start a couple months after? Or did you just handle all the AC21 stuff on your own and it worked out on timing? Did you tell the new employer you'd need sponsorship in the interim? Did you need anything from your previous employer to do the AC21?

If u have a pending I140 but get EAD card, you have to wait for I140 to be approved and then another 180 days? I recently downgraded to eb3 in October when the priority dates moved drastically for filing, the final action dates are still slower..!
