Minnesota 180 Day Portability Rule Attorney

A petitioner for an I-485 Adjustment of Status with an I-140 visa which has been approved from one of the Employment-based preference categories can change jobs and adjust status only so long as the new job is in the same or similar occupation, and if the Adjustment of Status application has been pending longer than 180 days. This regulation is found in the American Competitiveness Act for the 21st Century, section 106(c).

Upon receipt of the application, the USCIS requests a letter from the new employer verifying that an offer of employment is valid. The letter must include a description of the job and its salary. This letter is the basis for the USCIS evaluation of same or similar occupation for the petitioner.
