180 Days and Counting: Adjustment of Status and Permanent AC21 Portability - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
This intermediate panel will address the practical and legal challenges practitioners encounter when advising foreign national and employer clients on the application of I-140 permanent portability under AC21 §106(c). The October 2020 advancement of priority dates, particularly for EB-3 India and the resulting volume of I-485 filings in that category, as well as downgrades from EB-2 India, make the prospect of lengthy adjudication highly likely for the foreseeable future. The panelists will cover the relevant legal provisions and guidance, as well as tips on effectively using I-140 portability.
- Legal Requirements for Permanent Portability
- Risks for Porting While I-140 Is Still Pending
- Timing, Procedures, and Exceptions to Filing Form I-485 Supplement J
- Tips on Determining When a New Job Is “Same or Similar” Under AC21 §106(c)
- Relevance of SOC Codes and Required Education, Training, and Skills
- Obligations of the New Employer Hiring Pursuant to Permanent Portability
