Porting Adjustment of Status (Form I-485) under AC 21

Adjustment of status portability is a creation of the American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act (AC21) Pub. L No. 106-313, 114 Stat. 1251 (October 17, 2000), which amended Section 204(j) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

This AC21 law allows employees to accept a job that is in the same or similar occupational classification as the job on which the I-140 petition was based, if an adjustment of status application (I-485) has been pending for 180 days or more. The underlying I-140 petition remains valid, even though the applicant has changed jobs.
