Leaving my PhD program can affect my I-140 application?

Published Jun 14,2018 By Marino

Hi,

I’m enrolled in a PhD program and recently applied for I-120. However, I’m thinking about dropping out of my PhD. Since I mentioned about my being a PhD student in 140 application, can I leave PhD while I wait for the approval?

Thank you!

Hi Marino,

I presume you meant filing I-140. In principle, you wrote correct information in your petition and, in the past, it would not be a problem. However, since recently, USCIS introduced interviews for I-485, where they compare your current situation and future working plans with what you wrote in the petition, so, perhaps, it would be better to wait until the interview is completed.
