For success in any area, you need a team of good people around you. For spectacular results, you need a team of great people. This is true in all facets of life. Finding the right team is key. I think I was very lucky to come across Rajiv and his company, almost 10 years ago. Not only has Rajiv been phenomenal, I belive his team is his real core asset.  And in working with immigration.com, I was lucky to have this team on my side. Over the years, I have utilized their services for many projects for myself as well as many others in my company. H1’s and Green Cards primarily. What has been key is: 1) Accessibility - it’s very easy to approach Rajiv or any one else on his team. Rajiv has even hosted free conf calls for clients on weekends when the situation has necessitated it. And has been easily available for personal conf calls at short notice. 2) Knowledge - the breadth of knowledge that he and his team have in their expertise areas is amazing. They know the answers or know where to get them quickly. I see Rajiv as someone who is well networked and is a subject matter expert appearing on prominent news channels to help educate lawmakers and community.  3) Candor - I see Rajiv as a very straightforward and factual person who will provide all options and best advice / recommended course of action. 4) Focus on customer service - the focus is always on customer service. I (and all the people I referred to Rajiv) never had to face a problem with customer service issues - we always had quick responses to our questions. Rajiv’s team understands that they help clients with decisions that impact their life and companies with decisions that can help their bottomline. A lot of times these are time sensitive. I have seen the team putting in extra long hours and working through weeknds when it was critical - especially in 2007 when all priority dates became current and many many clients had to file completed applications in a matter of days and weeks. 5) People - the biggest asset - and I can say that the core of his team has been there for atleast, almost a decade. Heather, Leslie, Anna, Judi- they all have been exceptional in their interactions and follow through. It is truly a pleasure to know them :) Thank you, Mudit

I appreciate Mr. Rajiv Khanna & his team for their honest & sincere effort to handle my GC case. Before I came to know about Mr. Khanna I worked with several other immigration lawyers. Converting my status from F1 to H1 to GC was a long & complicated process & sometimes was quite frustrating. When Mr. Khanna & his team started handling my case, immediately I realized that he could handle my situation better than any other lawyers I met before. Sound knowledge, great team, honesty & excellent customer support are the strong points of his team. It was always easy to communicate & work with his team. I will always strongly recommend his name to everyone who needs help about immigration.

EB-2 experience

I am currently on H1B and have I-140 approved on EB-3 with a PD of Oct 06. I have overall 9 years of experience, which includes 4.5 years outside current employer. However, I had resigned my current employer an year ago and worked for a different company for an year and then joined back my current employer in Aug 2010. Since I haven't been continuously employed with current employer, I am wondering if ALL years prior to Aug 2010 can be considered for EB2 qualification.

Continuous employment is not required, but you can use the experience with the same employer ONLY if the job you used to perform and the job you will perform after the green card are more than 50% different.

EB-2 Visa Number Availability Update

The U.S. Department of State's Immigrant Visa Control and Reporting Division, has confirmed a dramatic reduction in the use of EB-1 immigrant visa numbers and the resulting favorable effect on the EB-2 category for immigrant visas chargeable to India.

DOS advised that demand for visa numbers in the EB1 category has declined significantly. Thus, approximately 12,000 unused EB1 numbers will be available to shift downward to the EB2 category, starting in May 2011.

Mr. Khanna has sound judgement and deep knowlege about US Immigration laws. He gave me an honest and straightforward answer everytime I’ve had a complex situation in the past ten years on a range of issues from F1 to H1 to GC. The staff at Mr. Khanna’s office is awesome too. They are very efficient and have good templates for most forms.

Green Card Expenses

For an employment-based green card application in the EB2 category, my employer has said that they would be willing to make the application if I am willing to pay for it. Can the employee bear the total cost of the entire process -- including attorney's processing fees, filing fees for all stages, advertising fees, EAD, advance parole fees -- from start to final stamping?

The employer is bound by law to pay for all expenses, including legal fees, associated with the PERM process (but not the rest of the green card process).
