    Job Change

    You are right, I stand corrected. You can change your job 6 months after the I-485 is submitted, i.e. once your PD is current. The fact that USCIS has not yet issued any type of guidance on a law passed while Clinton was President is abhorant. The legacy INS never wanted this but the law was...
