Immigration Issues/Green Card and Career Change


I have been working at my current position/company for almost seven years. My wife and are in a process of filing AOS. Am I allowed to change job/group (within the same company) or company after receiving my green card? If I want to pursue another opportunity at other company, what should I do? What kind of impact of doing so will be on my wife and me?

Once you get your green card you and your wife can change employers and fields with no problem. After your AOS is pending for mroe than 180 days, you can change employers within same field and same geographic area. You can not change geographic area or field until AOS is pending 180 days or they may make you start over again. I am assuming your wife is going to be a deriviative of your case.
