Thread: change employer after GC

  1. #1

    change employer after GC

    my friend came to US after getting green, he didn't work for the employer who petitioned his I-140 for EB2 visa . he lived in US and got job with other employer since if your Permanent resident than you can work any employer.
    He is going to apply for Citizen ship, does any one see any problem in getting Citizen ship.

    In the Application for Naturalization form ( http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/f...form/n-400.pdf ) they only ask if you are a Permanent Resident and they don't speak about the visa. So, I don't see any problem with the change of employer, as it is legal. I hope I'm right.

    Yes, he may face a problem. He needs to be ready to give a valid reason why he didn’t join the sponsoring employer (opportunity was no longer available or employer didn’t want to hire him, the pay was too low, he couldn’t find housing in the area, etc.). He may want to consult with an immigration attorney who not only specializes in naturalization but also employment-based immigration. He’s going to want an attorney present at his interview.
