EB2 Green Card

10+3.5 years diploma + 3 years BS

I did 3.5 years diploma in computer engineering + 3 years BS in information systems (BITS). MY labor is in process under EB2 catageory. I am worried that my i -140 is going to denied because for my education. Mr. Khanna do you have any approval cases with diploma + BS.

I think your worry is well founded. These type of cases are difficult to get approved. I am commenting in general because I do not know the exact facts. Discuss your concern with your lawyers and if possible, get a response in writing.

I got my GC yesterday. I am still waiting on GC for my wife because there is an RFE on her case.I didn’t get the RFE information yet on my wife. This is my case ============ -US Masters Degree - EB2 , Priority Date Nov 2004 - Applied for EAD in Sep 2009. - Received EAD in three weeks and AP in four weeks. - Received GC yesterday after 70 days for my application date. I want to thanks Prerna Mehta for all her efforts. She was very patient, informative and supportive.

EB1 Extraordinary ability

I filed my EB1 and EB2 NIW together, EB1 was denied but EB2 NIW was approved. I refiled EB1. I am a physician at one of top university , with many publications, presentations and offers from top league universities. There are only 12 people in the whole US that do same thing as I do in my clinical speciality. However I do not have any awards. What are the chances that my second filing of EB1 may go through.

Impossible to answer, Doc. This is like diagnosing a patient without access to the patient or his records. Impossible for me to say. I do not know your case.

EB2 from EB3 qualification

I am currently petitioned under EB3 (for embassy interview already) but unfortunately is caught up with the retrogression. Can I apply for an EB2 visa? I have a Bachelor's degree (BSN), took up Medicine (equivalent of a master's degree in academe) and currently is a faculty/administrator in one of the top nursing schools in Manila, going on 5 years of service. I am likewise a PhD student (Major in Biology) in one of the top university also in Manila. Am I qualified for an EB2? If yes, is EB2 a family based peition? My parents live in New Jersey. Thank you.

The term "EB" means employment-based. EB-2 is available for people with post graduate degrees (by US standards) OR a 4 years bach. degree with five years of progressively responsible experience. You need to speak with your lawyers about applying for an EB-2 and transferring your priority date.

Master transcript as degree

I received a complete official transcript and a letter confirming that I have completed all the requirements of the master degree. The university's next graduation date is Jan-30 2009 when I will get the diploma. Can I apply for EB2 on my complete official transcript or I have to wait until I get the diploma.

Generally speaking, under immigration law we focus on when the degree was completed - NOT when the formal diploma was conferred. Speak with your lawyers.

When does education become ground for denial - EB-2

If I file under EB2 in same educational qualifications, so in which stage it would be chances to denied. I mean in Labor, 140 or 485?

Your education/qualifications are USUALLY questioned in great detail at the I-140 stage. But USCIS or DOL can question any of these matters at any stage. I have seen approved I-140's being reopened and denied at the I-485 stage.

EB2 Qualification

I do have a question regarding EB2 eligibility. I earned a Bachelor degree in Science(B.Sc with Physics subject-which is not related to IT) from India(3 years) and also earned Masters in Computer (MCA in IT) (3 Years). So will I be able to file my employment Green card in EB2 category if I file my Green card in IT based company?

It is possible, but tell your lawyers to draft the PERM application carefully, so if EB2 is denied, EB3 should still be approved.

I would like to express my gratitude and thankfulness to the Law offices of Rajiv Khanna for their expertize in handling my case from the very beginning.     I received my green card on May 13, 2009 under EB2 category.  Having dealt with several law offices, including famous attorneys in the New York and New Jersey area, I have not found such professionalism, couteousness and friendliness as exhibited by the Law offices of Rajiv Khanna.   Every paper work submitted was accurately drafted , reviewed and questions answered prior to submission.   The results were as Rajiv forecasted in the beginning, which shows he knows exactly what he is doing,  which is ultimately satisfying to any client.   Also, I had several consultation sessions with Mr. Rajiv and other attorneys lik Mr. Mathew Chacko without any additional fees/charges - May God Bless you and your offices Mr. Rajiv and may you continue to prosper.    Also special thanks goes out to all who worked on my case namely Heather Crump, Leslie Hager, Mark Riddick and Art Shifflett and answered all my questions and clarified every single doubt that I had.   I would definitely and gladly recommend the Law Offices of Rajiv Khanna to all my friends.
