My LC was recently approved. Is it advisable to use my own lawyer to file the I-140 so that my employer cannot revoke it in the future if I move to a new company?


The I-140 is signed by the employer. It is the employer’s filing. Therefore, the employer can still revoke the I-140 no matter which attorney files it. The only exception is for self-petitioned categories, including EB1(a) and EB2 national interest waiver (NIW) cases. (09.May.2016)
