I changed job after I-140 approval. My priority date is expected to become current in next few months. However, my current employer has just now initiated the PERM process. Considering PERM processing delays, it may take around 1.5 to 2 years to get PERM approval. My H1B is valid for around 3 years. Is there a time limit to file I-485 once final action priority date is current? If my current PERM is approved in 2 years, can my employer file for I-140/I-485 using my previous employer priority date? What are the consequences of not filing I-485 within a year of priority date becoming current due to PERM processing delay?
