After my I-140 petition was approved, my son aged out before the priority date became current. My I-485 was recently approved, and I now plan to sponsor my son for a green card. Can I use the priority date from my old I-140?


Unfortunately, no, the priority date from one’s I-140 cannot be transferred to an I-130 petition. (03.Apr.2024)
