rejoined an old company, I-140 amendment


Registered Users (C)

I was with company A and got my LCA/I140 approved in July 2001. waited for 2 years to file for 485 and I was laid off before filing 485, found job with company B and they filed LC again and got my H1 extended beyond 6th year. Company A got acquired by company C and Company C hired me back and filed my I140 amendment(for change in tax id, I guess) and I485.

My question is, is processing I-140 amendment any faster than I-140 itself?

I too am in a similar situation.

I have an approved labor from my prrevious company. My labor got approved last year.

The company is bought over by another company.
I could use the approved labor if I join back the company.

I have already applied for GC from my new company last year ( Apr 2004) and its not moving at all.

I would like to know if there is a expiry date on the approved labor?
Also, I have 8 months before my H1 expires( 6 years).
