Los Angeles, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: Filing 485 with two I -140s

My I140 is dated June 2013. But due to change in my role at the same employer, a new PERM process was initiated in July 2021. The new process is in PWD stage. Now with the latest visa bulletin, my date of fling has become current ( June 2013). So can I file 485 based on the original i-140 or do I have to wait for the PERM process to be completed for the new i-140 and then file the 485 ?

A: The most legally prudent approach to that matter would be working with the assigned or retained Immigration Attorney licensed to practice law and intimately familiar with old case procedural history, documents, bona fide evidence, and correspondence.
