i140 Withdrawn vs Revoke

Your i140 stays valid if it has not been withdrawn by employer in 180 days after its approval.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 You cannot use the i140 if it has been revoked.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 Do not worry if the USCIS case status shows as ‘withdrawn’ online.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H1B Transfer with Withdrawn i140

You can use withdrawn i140 to port your Green date to new employer by filing a new PERM and i140.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

    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.

    Hi Anil,

    Finally got the I 140 approval. From FOIA i can see what have happened in my I 140 case. after 10 months attorney raised SR and they got response immediately but i am not sure what response was given… After that they have converted my case to premium and it got approved in 10 days. In my case even after raising SR they didnt approve my case. Now working on filing extenstion… Thanks a lot for your help and information
