    Ron,


    I recently got my Green Card in EB-3 category through my employer. My company is in New York. All my PERM,I-140 and Green Card were filed here in New York state. Now I am thinking of moving to another state like Texas. My employer and job description will remain the same. I will be working remotely from home for my current employer. I will still be paying New York state taxes. I want to know if my move is legal.Also will this cause any issue when I apply for citizenship after 5 years?. I know PERM and I-140 is tied to a specific job location

    Me,my wife and daughter got Green Card on 14th August 2015. My son got his Green card on 22 September 2015. My son green card was delayed because of missing vaccination. so he didn't get green card with us

    I want to know after how much time I can move out to another state? I just don't need any issues during my citizenship process

    Are you kidding? You are a free bird man. Do whatever from wherever but pay the taxes.

    Ron: For such questions USCIS should repeal the GC. Just kidding.

    Ron,

    Thanks for your reply . Some body told me that I have to wait 6 months or maybe 1 year before I can move. Is this true?

    Not true. That applies to the time following the filing of your application for adjustment of status.
