My I-140 is approved, and my priority date likely will be current soon. My employer offered me a special job that would have be working at an overseas office for a few years. If I accept this position, would I still be able to use the I-140 when I return to the U.S.? Is there a time limit for filing my I-485 after the priority date becomes current?


Generally speaking, there is no set time limit for filing an I-485 after the priority date becomes current. (09.Feb.2022)
