EB2 Green Card

EB2 Schedule A question

My PERM application just got denied due to the recent layoff in my company. Can I apply EB2 (schedule A) to bypass the labor certification step? Will the recent PERM denial affect the Schedule A application? Is it ok to submit the schedule A application soon or I have to wait for a certain time period?

If you are qualified, you can apply for Schedule A. I cannot think of any way the PERM denial or layoffs could cause any issues and there should be no waiting to file.

EB-2 with ChE MS + 2 yrs exp

I graduated from a 4 yr US BSChE program and a 2yr MS ChE program and have been working on an H-1B for the same U.S. University as a Research Associate for 2 yrs.All my publications (2-3) are still pending and I am secondary on most of them.What requirements would the position I am promoted to need in order for me to qualify for the EB-2?

You qualify for EB-2, of course, whether or not a promotion is required is entirely up to your lawyer and the employer to determine. Any position that requires an MS OR BS = 5 years experience (progressively responsible) qualifies for EB-2 filing.

Hi all, Finally I have got my GC approved. Just yesterday I recieved my card in mail. I am so happy and relieved because it has come in just the right time. Many thanks to everyone at immigration.com. These people are very professional. Specially I would like to thank Prerna, Vijay and Mathew for helping me out throgh out my GC process. I would highly recommend Immigration Law firm to anyone looking for representation in immigration matters. Best thing about them is you can actually talk to the lawyer or your assigned contact person yourself which unlike other law firms is almost impossible.. Great job guys..You are really the best.

EB-2 with three years bachelor's degree

I have 3 yr Bachelor's degree (BSc) + 3 yr Bacheolor's degree in technology(BTech) from India and 8 years of experience. Do I qualify to apply for Green Card under EB2 category if the position requiers MS or BS+5 yr experience.

Usually, you are NOT permitted to put together two 3-year bach. degrees. So, it appears unlikely you will qualify for EB-2.

I came to the United States by an H1B visa. The H1 visa was filed through my company’s attorney which later I asked them to apply for my green card as well. Unfortunately, the attorney made several mistakes and I cancelled my contract with them. After some research and asking from friends and colleagues, I decided to go with the Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khanna whose web site, immigration.com is well known. Obviously the cost was higher than our company’s attorney but I used to hear lots of sad stories about how some unexperienced attornies lost the customer’s hope, time, and money. So, I think it was really worth it because last week I received my green card after less than 3 years. This is a very good record for EB2 category. Another Iranian friend of mine took about 7 years to get his GC! Heather Riddick, Art Shifflett, Mathew Chacko, and Rajiv Khanna worked on my cases during this time and I am extremely satisfied by their experience, knowledge, care, and accuracy. Cheers to all of them and thanks again!

The Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khanna have been helping me with my GC petition. Recently, my fiancee and I decided to get married, and I realized 2 weeks before my trip that I did not renew my Advanced Parole Document. Your law office was very quick to suggest that I apply for H1B visa (based on approved I-140) under Premium Processing. Rachel Nulty (Staunton, VA office) was my case manager, and she worked on the petition so meticulously that we got my H1B petition approved within 2 weeks in a timely fashion. I need to thank Rachel and the entire law firm for the professionalism you executed my case with. Your timely help with my H1B petition is extremely appreciated and is second to none. I am happy that I chose your law firm for my GC petition, and I am sure that we would be getting our GC in the near future.

EB2 or EB3

I have 7 years of experience with 3year bachelors degree + 2year masters degree from India.Job for which my GC is being filed is Bachelors degree+6yr experience. As per knowledge from different online sources 3year bach. degree+2year masters degree+5years progressive,post-masters exp.- Is considered as EB-2 Professionals with Advanced Degrees.My lawyer is saying since my bachelors(India)is a 3yr program & US bachelors degree is a 4yr program so my case falls under EB3 & not EB2. She also specified that under EB2 category the educational degree must be from a "single source" & not from combination of degrees.

Generally speaking, if BS and MS are in the same or similar fields, you should be able to combine them to arrive at a 4-year degree for EB2 purposes. You should have a shot at EB2.

My GC approved last week. My previous GC application filed by different attorney got rejected in 2005, and then I’ve contacted Rajiv for guidance in our case. On Rajiv’s advise we started the new GC process. Labor approved in 7 days and I-140 in 21 days. All this because of Rajiv and his team’s exceptional service, dedication and knowledge. Big thanks to Rajiv Khanna!! Rajiv is a nice person and his advice through phone calls and emails helped us in resolving the issues. I would like to specially thank Matthew, Amrita, Bharathi, and Prerna for helping me to resolve issue and prompt in responding to emails. I would strongly recommend Law offices of Rajiv Khanna to anyone in the future who requires immigration assistance.
