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

USCIS Centralizes Filing of Form I-130

WASHINGTON - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that effective Aug. 15, 2011, petitioners residing in countries without USCIS offices will be able to file a Petition for an Alien Relative (Form I-130), with the USCIS Chicago Lockbox facility. This will increase the efficiency of the relative petition filing process and give USCIS more flexibility in managing its workload. Previous regulations permitted these petitioners, who comprise about 5 percent of all I-130 petitioners, to file with USCIS or the U.S.

USCIS Alert on Delayed Immediate Relative Petitions, (Form I-130) at Texas Service Center

In November 2010, USCIS transferred approximately 36,000 Immediate Relative petitions from our California Service Center to our Texas Service Center. We anticipated that this redistribution of work would result in more timely adjudication of these petitions. Due to a number of unforeseen circumstances at our Texas Service Center, many of these cases have not been processed and are beyond our estimated processing times. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may have caused you and we are making every effort to remedy this situation as soon as possible.

Mr. Khanna really helped us understand the issues related to I-130 petition. The consultation provided a clear understanding of the process and requirements. He was straightforward enough to advise us that we could do the process on our own without using the services of a professional immigration attorney.
