We won a case for an applicant following receipt of a Request for Evidence. We submitted evidence to show that the beneficiary qualified for the category having published scholarly articles, authored a book chapter and acted as the judge of her peers. We noted the impact factor for the journals where her work was published and provided citations details. We provided evidence to show that she was a member of an editorial board.
Thank You. It has been a great experience working with this law office. They helped me with my green card (EB1 - OR) in 2010 and now (Feb 2017) successfully received by naturalization certificate, again with help from this law office. Went through multiple hassles with immigration but in every step of the way, this team did a great job.
I highly recommend Rajiv Ji's law offices for immigration cases.
Thanks to Rajiv Ji, Diane Lombardo and Lakshmi.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) amended its regulations today to improve the programs serving the H-1B1, E-3 and CW-1 nonimmigrant classifications and the EB-1 immigrant classification, and remove unnecessary hurdles that place such workers at a disadvantage when compared to similarly situated workers in other visa classifications.
Are they changing the law for EB-1? What is the change?
The applicant had a Ph.D. (Physics), Master of Science (Physics), Bachelor of Education, and Bachelor of Science and more than fourteen years’ research experience working for several world-renowned institutions. Her discipline was Biometeorology – Atmospheric Scientist. We were able to provide substantial documentary evidence of the applicant’s original contributions that began as early has her Ph.D.
Our client received an approved I-140 for EB-2, but, with the priority dates at a standstill, opted to file under EB-1 as well. She had three Ph.D.’s in Marketing and Management. We provided documentary evidence to show her unique specialty in the social sciences. This applicant had some significant publications but not as many of some other scientists. However, we were able to prove that, with social scientists, the data collection process takes substantially more time and, therefore, the volume of publications would not be the same as a hard scientist. We were able to show that sever
How does EB-1C portability work?
I also have a question about the EB1C portability of the priority date. Say, If I have I-140 approved under EB1C and have a particular priority date. For some reason, if I need to or want to change employers and I do not qualify for EB1C with other employers. My new employer can file I-140 under EB-2, or I can file EB-2 NIW myself. I have both options. The question is whether I can use the priority date of the earlier approved I-140 petition under EB1C to the new employer's EB-2 petition and file AOS.
Sure. EB-1/EB-2/EB-3 all of them can be ported.
We won a case following a Request for Evidence for a scientist. We were able to establish that he is an internationally renowned scientist who is acclaimed and respected in the international research community for his expertise in the area of nanotechnology, magnetic nanoparticles and nanocomposites, nanomagnetism, thermoelectric nanoparticles and nanocomposite materials. His unique specialty set him apart from others in the field.
I worked with Rajiv and Diane for my EB1-B greencard petition. The initial consultations with Rajiv were a big help in understanding my eligibility (I have a PhD and work as a scientist at a Biotech company) and the paperwork required for the petition. Diane’s amazing organizational skills made the daunting process of preparing the I-140 petition very manageable. The I-140 was approved within a week of submission which is a testament to how thoroughly prepared it was. Due to the dates for EB1 India being retrogressed, the I-485 (adjustment of status) process took 3 years during which the office helped me with switching jobs via AC21 portability, renewing three EAD/AP cards and answering any questions that I may have had. The sense of urgency and empathy from both Diane and Rajiv at every step is what makes them the best at what they do. They are of course also incredibly knowledgeable and in step with all the various changes that have rapidly occurred in immigration. My husband and I finally have our green cards and we can’t thank the team at the Law offices of Rajiv S. Khanna enough for everything they do.
