Even if ownership of a business has changed, a company can usually continue to sponsor an employee through a Successor-in-Interest Petition as long as ownership of a business or of a discrete part of a business is transferred from the employer stated on the labor certification application to the employer who desires to file the petition, such as through a merger, acquisition or reorganization.
All of the classifications for permeant visas have cut-off/priority dates that can move forward or backward from month to month, for both worldwide and per-country categories. When a date retrogresses—moves backward—and appears that it will stay retrogressed for a lengthy period, the employer may wish to seek a classification with a closer date by filing a second petition. This can be done because the priority date is retained from the original petition to the new petition.
