EB1 Green Card

Extension of Investor Visas, Religious Visas, Conrad 30 for Physicians

We are being informed that EB-5 investments in regional centers are now possible until December. The date has been extended.
1) Is this true?
2) Given that a green card is available years after the initial investment, in the current volatile immigration climate, how safe is an EB-5 ?

True. The EB-5, the religious visa programs and Conrad 30 waives for foreign physicians have been extended until 8 December 2017 pursuant to H.R. 601 – Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 and Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017.

Filing green card through multiple categories or employers and/or family simultaneously

1. Can we file multiple green cards together? If yes what will be the side effect?
2. My company filed my green card in EB-2 category and I-140 is approved with priority date 2013. I want to give a try with EB1 category personally if I will try in EB-1 and let’s say it is not approved, then will it affect my EB-2 green card?
3. Should job description match in EB-1 and EB-2?
4. What may all possible issues occur?

F-1 Student Directly Filing for a Green Card

I am currently working as a research fellow on F-1 OPT and my employer is considering filing for EB-1. My question is, can the transition be done from F-1 OPT to EB-1 and in case my application does not go through can I come back to renew my F-1 status to continue a Ph.D. in the future?

There is nothing in law that stops an F-1 student from directly filing for a green card. But, exhibiting immigrant intent while on an F-1 visa can raise some issues that should be discussed and planned for with your lawyers.

EB-1B – Outstanding Professor/Researcher

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.
