I have an approved I-140 from my previous employer. The priority date has been current for more than one year. My current employer is in the process of filing a PERM LC for me. Can I still keep the old priority date?


Yes, the fact that you did not file an I-485 based on the old I-140 within one year normally would not impact your ability to retain the priority date. (18.Aug.2022)
