Adjustment of Status

USCIS Blog Explains Three Myths on Adjustment of Status Process

In reading some of the online immigration forums, we have noticed that there are a few myths on the internet about the adjustment of status, also known as the Green Card process. We hope this post helps to clear up any confusion you have about the process of getting your Green Card.

Myth # 1

USCIS must make a decision on your Green Card application (Form I-485) within 180 days after your interview.

I'd like to thank Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khanna, for all the assistance with my case. The whole GC process through your offices was a real pleasant experience. As I am mentioning below, it took USCIS 6 years to adjudicate this case, when it was transferred from my former company, but it was possible only because of prompt intervention from your side and finding the correct resolution for this problem. I couldn't say that it happened by itself - it was truly a collaborative effort between Mr. Khanna and all other people of Law Offices of R.S.Khanna, my current company, my former employer, and last but not least, support from my family. Unfortunately, it showed how inefficient the government could be in certain aspects, and only diligence and persistence turned this into a success.
There was a complex RFE for I-485 AOS based on employment 2 years ago, which involved a H1-b denial of extension for former employer, handling status during that period, new H1-b, and travel to home country for visa stamping.
I’d like to thank Mathew Chacko for handling my case and all aspects of it.
I'd like to mention the diligence of Bharathi for answering to my emails almost instantenousely.
I'd like to thank Mr. Iqbal for stepping in and making sure about timely communication with USCIS NSC.
I'd like to thank Leslie and Prernaji for helping with other matters.
If you need your complex case done right, don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Khanna and his wonderful team.

Rajiv S. Khanna firm filed my GC application in EB2 at all stages Labor, 140 and 485. This firm has very experienced, professional attorney and my application went very smooth without issues. They provided required information/documents of what needs to be filled and what needs to be sent. They filed on time and they communicated/acted very prompt and sincerly. Bharathi at 485 stage filed AOS for me and my wife and we received GC cards in record time of 3 months from filing date to receival of cards. I highly recommend this Rajiv S. Khanna firm for GC applications filing. Thank you for your great support and service in my 5years journey of obtaining permanant resident status/GC card.

I have engaged Rajiv’s office for over 10 years now for many different reasons. I’ve also been recommending Rajiv’s law offices to my aquaintences & friends for over 10 years now. I have very close examples of people who lost 3-5 years going to some other lawyer & later, at  my advise, going through Rajiv’s office, who somehow ‘fixed everythin’ ???? Rajiv once told me … ’ why do you want to engage my office? this is so simple, you can do it yourself and save some money…”  if you expect more from a lawyer… you are crazy!!!!! For Rajiv, its not about the money… he REALLY wants to ‘do the right thing’. Rajiv provided me guidance for a new case - at no cost just because I was a old client -  & literally advised me I could save money by doing the work myself - it was very simple. I was infact, ready to pay him or some other lawyer 100s of $s because this was a inquiry near & dear to me. There is no better example of honesty & forthrighness ( i’ve dealt with many lawyers in my lifetime & if you have a better example, I’d certainly like to hear it) .  I’d ( & have already ) recommend Rajiv for his unparalleled knowledge & honesty in a instant & have also, personally, gone back to him time and again - H1B , family visas, family GC, company visas etc etc etc - again & again……its a no-brainer for me… & yeah.. I’d put my money where my mouth is…. –DJ

I had an accident and am on disability while my green card adjustment of status application ( form I-485 ) has been pending for over 4 years. My I-140 had been approved about 5 years back but my case has been caught up in the visa backlogs at USCIS and Department of State. I wanted to know if there was any provision for help in the immigration laws, in case I am sent for long term disability or my employment is terminated before I receive my green card. I learnt that employment and disability are subjects to be discussed with a benefits or employment attorney. The only immigration benefits are via AC 21 or via a private bill. Also, that one should not loose the advance parole anytime while the AOS is pending. I want to thank Mr. Rajiv Khanna for his generosity with time and expert guidance. Over the phone I found him to have a very pleasant personality. he had me feel comfortable and didnt seem money minded at all.
