Q: Changing jobs after green card based on employment received
I have got my employment based green card a month back however now my current employer isn’t focused on my promotion and compensation change. I have come across a great opportunity and want to switch jobs, wanted to know is there anyway current employer can cause issues with my green card for resigning ?
Once your permanent resident status was approved by USCIS you are expected to work in the sponsored position for a reasonable period of time.
The law does not set a specific amount of time that you must remain with the sponsoring employer.
I highly recommend that you should visit with an experienced immigration attorney to obtain personalized guidance.
More information is needed. Are you being paid what is indicated on the labor certification’s prevailing wage?
Again, you ought to remain a reasonable amount of time, but there may be other issues to consider. Therefore, I also strongly recommend that you seek an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications.
