While switching employers after I-140 approval, will I get a 3-yr extension with the new employer?


If the I-140 priority date is not current, it is possible to get three-year extensions beyond the six-year limit with ANY employer. Thus, if the new employer requests three years, and can show the USCIS that the employer-employee relationship will extend for that three year period (this is an issue in IT consulting cases), then the USCIS can approve the three-year extension.
