With the good movement in the Aug 2010 bulletin, the AOS got approved for my family. Without the guidance of the entire team at Law offices of Rajiv Khanna that worked on my case, this would not have been possible. To name a few that i remember starting with Rajiv who gave me good confidence to hire him for the services during our intial conversations: Rajiv, Prerna, Richa, Moahana, Mathew, Anna, Leslie, Heather, Mark. I am sorry if i have missed out anyone and the people behind the scenes. Each one of these guys have been amazing and great and never was i disappointed in the whole process (except for the long wait, which is not your fault). I very fondly remember the visagate episode in 2007. When the word spread around about it, it was late in the evening and someone was there in your office to answer my queries, which helped me make a decision to drive overnight, down to Staunton from New Haven CT, along with my 4 month old, my wife and my father in law to reach there early morning and finish the process of filing for the I-140 and I-485. Everybody at the office was very helpful even under the stress that they were in when being bombarded by so much to do in such a short time. Additionally i believe the right advise was always delivered in a timely manner and everyone worked with me to help my case progress at a good pace. I cannot thank you enough for all your help and guidance and would very highly recommend your services to anyone. Thanks again for your help. Warm Regards Yash Agarwal

I have had a very good experience on my Green Card process from the attorneys at immigration.com. My application process started off around 2007 and till date, all the time I have received friendly response from all the staff from this attorney(I have interacted with around 3 or 4 people during my green card process) Specifically, I want to highlight Sheena Gill on her approach, care and attention she shows.  My green card process had some hiccups in the form of I140 RFE and she did a great job on responding to that RFE.  If not her, I may have been in trouble.  She spent extra effort in understanding the reason of RFE and then suggested me to bring various evidence, did excellent job in compiling them and writing up a detailed RFE response. I was also very impressed, when Sheena tried tell me that my I485 was approved.  She tried to call me, but due to mobile signal issues, I was not reachable.  She dug out my home phone number and contacted my spouse to find out where I am.  In comparison, others would have just left a voice mail and could have waited until I call them back. Apart from the Green Card process, I have received tips and help on other USCIS related matters from all the team at immigration.com, with out making me feel that they are doing favor. I have recommended these attorneys to few of my friends and will keep doing that in future.

If one has an approved I-140

If one has an approved I-140, does he/she to move to a similar job/position/field to save the PD?

No, the job does not have to be similar. The green card has to be done again, but the PD can be ported to any job and category (EB1, EB2, EB3).

GC and EB2

My GC application has been filed under EB3. 140 has been approved, PD-08/2008. I hold a MS degree from US and possess 5yrs work experience. I've recently been moved to a new role. While the role itself don't require a MS degree, will I be eligible to file an EB2 application if the role required a BS + 5yrs work experience? My Wife is an Indian citizen but was born in Kuwait and is on H4 currently. Is the concept of "Cross Eligibility" applicable to my GC application? If yes, how do we take advantage of it?

You can apply for EB2 if the job requires Bach. with 5 years of post bach. exp. and yes, you can use cross chargeability. Discuss details with your lawyers.

EB2 eligibility for advanced degree occupational therapist

I just want to know if I can be eligible for an EB2 visa...I have a bachelor of science in occupational therapy in the Philippines and I am taking up an advanced degree in OT online here in the US..the question is...can I apply for EB2 after I had finished the advance degree in OT?

In my opinion, if your job requires an advanced degree, you can apply for EB-2.

My wife and I received our I-485 approval within 24 months for the whole process with Rajiv S. Khanna as our attorney and the simply wonderful team of case workers. Rajiv is an expert on Immigration Laws and is straight up and abreast of rules & regulations and is strict about the law and stays strictly as defensive. The most impressive part is the team that comprised of Heather Riddick and Art Shifflet was just so efficient and so professional, that the entire process seemed so easy. We had our ups and downs with USCIS RFEs and delays but throughout all that, the team worked with great empathy and took the time to understand and hear out our concerns and worries and gave us just the right advice and support. All I can say is that they both feel just like family and are truly the best team i have worked with for any such legal matters or otherwise.

Great going guys...keep up the great work and wish you all the very best!!

EB2 Priority Date Cross Changeability...

Let me first thank you for guiding hundreds of us with your valuable advice. My sincere thanks to you. I have a question regarding the inter-changeability of EB2 prority dates. I'm an Indian citizen and my wife is a Russian citizen, born in Russia. She will be filing as my dependent on my green card. I read on some online forums that I can user her country's priority date ("current" as of today) for the green card. Is this correct?

Yes, that is correct. This is referred to as "Cross Changeability."

EB2 for a State job

I have been offered a state job, whose requirements are a Bachelor's degree with a 1 year experience. However, I have a US-based Master's degree. From what I understood from the text above, my green card can not be filed under EB2. I have talked to my employer about it and they have indicated that they are willing to help me in any way they can. If I were to request them to hire me in another position and advertise the new job requirements (Master's) after I'm hired, will I be eligible under the EB2 category?

You are correct. You will not qualify for an EB2 unless the job also legitimately requires a post graduate degree or Bach. with five years of experience at a minimum.

EB2 with online masters degree

I have done my 5 years of Bachelors(traditional school) in IT from USA and also my 2 years of MBA through distance education(online) from accredited(Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC)) University in USA. I need to know if I qualify under EB2 Category(provided that job requires advanced degree). My employer wants to evaluate my Master degree because he thinks that Distance education is not recognized.

The key here is to find if the degree is accredited. Get together with the school.

EB-2

In order to qualify for EB2 under advance degrees, is it sufficient to have a MS degree from US univ or should the job requirement state so?

The job must also require (genuinely) EB-2 level qualifications.
