    Should I stay at current Company for 180 days so that the new law which is coming on. Jan 17th for retaining approved i140 priority date and extension without worrying about the number of companies I move to even if Perm is not filed in next companies ?

    It really does not matter. The rule is useless. You can retain PD as long as your current I-140 is not revoked for fraud

    Just make sure that your new h1b is approved if you are anywhere close to 6 years on h1 before your employer cancels your i140. Most employers don't revoke I-140 in that you get your h1 approved for 3 years and it won't matter if they do revoke I-140 after your h1 approval

    I believe he wants to hop around different companies with the approved/revoked 140. Mostly revoked 140. That's possible after 17th Jan. unless new admin decides otherwise.
