i140 Withdrawn vs Revoke

Your i140 stays valid if it has not been withdrawn by employer in 180 days after its approval.

USCIS only revokes i140 if they find any fraud or mis-representation by your employer. You cannot use the i140 if it has been revoked.

Employer may request the i140 withdrawal even after 180 days. Do not worry if the USCIS case status shows as ‘withdrawn’ online.

i140 Withdrawal is safe but revoke makes i140 un-usable for future.

H1B Transfer with Withdrawn i140

You can use withdrawn i140 to port your Green date to new employer by filing a new PERM and i140.

Use i140  extend your H1B stay in US after 6 year. You can change employer using i140 and file H1B transfer multiple times as long as your Green card priority date is not current.

Employer not sharing i140 details?

You can request your i140 details from USCIS using FOIA request if your employer is not sharing i140 with you.

    Hi Anil, I wanted to get your opinion on when you estimate I will receive a decision on my I-140.

    Here is my scenario. My firm applied for EB-2 on June 21, 2013.
    More recently, I sent an EB1A concurrent petition (I-140 and I-485) on May 14, 2019 using my 2013 priority date.

    It would be great if you can help me get an estimate on when I can hear from USCIS on adjudication of my I-140. Many thanks!

    Hi Anil,

    My EB2-NIW I-140 has been received on October 19, 2018 at the Texas Service Center. When do you think I would hear back?

    Thanks,

    Hi Anil,

    It is also possible that attorney hide the result because i highly doubt that uscis would have missed to send approval hard copy and even if uscis missed attorney should have followed up based on online status. Not sure whether it is a mistake or purposefully hidden.

    i too raised the foia. Once i get the receipt number i ll check online on what happened on my case and will get confirmation whether it is approved or not.

          Masha 25 Apr, 19 at 7:59 pm

          Why there is too much difference between my receipt number (SRC1890***** ) and the best case number for NIW TSC18228*****? It’s only 3 days difference between filling dates.


          • Anil Gupta
            Anil Gupta 25 Apr, 19 at 9:09 pm

            It is possible that there were those many numbers of applications received between those two dates.

          Anil Gupta 25 Apr, 19 at 9:09 pm

          Sorry, i do not give out individual estimates. If I do, i get multiples comments where people start asking for their case.
          It is not possible for me to reply to each case estimate as it takes too much time.

    Hello, I have been waiting for my case’s approval. But I am wondering which category is right for me. I am a registered nurse and filed with Form 9089 and I-140. And also, I heard this green card is EB-3 category. So I used to check the estimated dates of “skilled worker(E31)”. However, today, I found “Schedule A nurses” and I think that’s right thing for me…? I googled it but still am confused. Which one can I check for my case?
    Please help me.

    Thank you.


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 11 Apr, 19 at 8:43 am

      It depends on what is written on your form 9089. Has your employer shared it with you?


      • Soo
        Soo 11 Apr, 19 at 10:25 am

        Yes. They shared it. They showed me my form 9089


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 11 Apr, 19 at 11:12 am

          Then, the category should be mentioned on it.


          • Soo
            Soo 11 Apr, 19 at 12:08 pm

            I can see the question about “Schedule A occupation” is Yes. Then it means my category is Schedule A, right?

            Thanks a lot.


            • Anil Gupta
              Anil Gupta 11 Apr, 19 at 12:08 pm

              Yes, it should be.

    Best case approval dates seemed to have jumped by a few months overnight. Any insights into what caused this movement?


    • Anil Gupta
      Anil Gupta 2 Apr, 19 at 8:26 pm

      Our service runs in background and it may have found new cases that would have been reported as approved.

        All the Raise SR dates have also moved a month to Oct 5, 2018. do you think its an error?


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 3 Apr, 19 at 8:17 am

          Raise SR dates are controlled and shared by USCIS. They publish these dates monthly based on their own data analysis.
          We just show them here for easy access.

            USCIS has of course gone bonkers! Nebraska I-140 raise SR dates first jumped to 5-Oct overnight last week and now has retrogressed again to May etc. today. One more proof that the whole system is absolutely broken!

      After the modified USCIS dates, estimated processing time has changed for your case to get approval by June 2019 end.

        FBS 3 Apr, 19 at 11:27 am

        Thank you so much Anil. May I ask you why I would hear back in June now that the times are shorter (3.5 Months to 6 Months)?


        • Anil Gupta
          Anil Gupta 3 Apr, 19 at 1:11 pm

          Sorry. My bad. I replied to wrong case. Your earlier estimation stays same.
          I mistook it for Texas service center.
