A: You will need to contact the prior petitioning employer and ask if the job position stated in the FORM I-140 is still available to you and whether that prior employer is willing to re-hire you. You also must be willing to return to render the appropriate services with that prior employer. Once you have all of that resolved then you can begin to analyze which forms are required to proceed to file for adjustment of status based on that previously approved FORM I-140.
