We got our Green Cards approved recently. I want to thank the entire staff of Rajiv S. Khanna, especially Prerna Mehta for helping us with our Green Card approval process. Prerna Ji was very professional. She was very patient with our queries during the process and provided answers to our queries within 24 hours. The team at Rajiv S. Khanna’s office is awesome.

I started the Whole process on April 2005 with Rajiv Khanna as&nbsp;my attorney. I must mention the speed at which they got my labor and 140 approved was very impressive.I must also mention the paper work done under his team’s guidance was very methodical and I belive it helped me get my GC approved without any RFE’s. I was very impressed with mr khanna’s staff in general and with a special mention of mr mathew and bharathi who were very patient will all my questions and concerns.I was also very impressed with the way my daughter’s case was handled by&nbsp;Mr Khanna and his staff, recommending me with different options and advicing me to do the right thing at the right time. My daughter’s case was very unique and Mr Khanna and his staff had very clear understanding on her case and adviced me to do the right thing and finally on Feb20th 2011 her case&nbsp;was resolved. Without Mr Khanna and his staff I do not think my daughter would have got her green card.&nbsp;I highly recommend Mr Khanna’s office to anyone who wants to apply for green card or any other immigration related issues.SPAN>SPAN>

EB-3 category

I am on EB3 category and have been working in the IT sector for the last 6 years and one year ago I completed my MBA too. I am currently working as a contractor and using my EAD. I am on Adjustment of status right now. Is it possible to change my category from EB3 to EB2?

It is possible, but the green card will have to be started again from PERM.

I got my BSN in the US

I got my BSN in the US, passed NCLEX and got my employment authorization. I am currently on F1 visa, and working at a nursing home. I live in MN and it was extremely hard to get a job. How do I apply for a green card and what role will my employer play in this process? Is it going to cost my employer any money? And how long is it going to take to get a green card?

Your employer's role in this process is limited. You can pay for all expenses yourself. The length of the process is determined by the country of birth.

Job Change after I-140

I am in the 5th year of my H1. My current employer has filed for my PERM under EB-3 category since I did not have 5 years experience before (EB-3 has 6 years backlog though EB-2 queue for me is current). I want to know is it possible to wait for I-140 approval, get 3 year extension with current employer and then switch jobs? Will I be able to get 3 more years on H1 with future employer?

It is possible and common for employer B to get H-1 extension based upon an I-140 approval of employer A. You need to speak about the details with a lawyer.

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!

I just got an employment based Green Card through Rajiv Khanna’s firm. They have a very streamlined process for all the steps of the GC process. Their employees possess lot of patience, a much needed virtue to deal with GC clients.
