Hmd,
Congratulations!. I am also a 10/2003 Filer, with same as your 140 approval date and FP date and LUD on FP received date and my LUD on 485 did change again without any message change on 11/30 and hopefully waiting for my approval.

Great to hear that 10/2003 approvals are pouring in.. Enjoy the freedome Hmd!!

Congrats hmd

HMD,
Congrats........ My case is almost similar as yours. I140/I485 ND 10/9/03.
I-140 approved 6/9/04.
I changed my job in end of august with similar job description as my labor.
But I haven't informed USCIS as of yet. Is there any timeframe to inform USCIS??

Also thanks a million for the sample AC-21 letters. This is really helpful.

Folks,
Please let me know if there is any timeframe to inform the USCIS about AC-21?

Thanks

I don't think there is a time frame because the Yates memo nor Ac21 rule doesn't explicitly say that you have to inform CIS in the first place so if you want you can inform CIS now. When informing CIS ( in your case) attaching pay stubs ( i would send latest three months pay stubs) will help.

thank you hmd for prompt response. once again congrats and enjoy your freedom.

welcome and thanks but remember your application will only come under Ac21 only when you inform the CIS about the job change if not and if your application gets approved say tommorow then you got your GC from your old employer (one who filed LC)

Change of employment question ?

Hi HMD,

I am planning on changing employment using the AC21 rule. My I140 got approved on 08/09/2005. But I do not have a copy of the approval notice and the company lawyer would not give it to me. Will this cause a problem in the switch of employment ? If yes, do you, or anyone on this board, know what would be the solution ?
