I would like to thank Mr. Rajiv Khanna and his team for their proficiency on my GC case. Mr. Khanna is an expert and he clearly knows what is expected and best process to achieve target by providing all essential information with respect to the case. Mr. Khanna is always available to clarify the questions and respects the time to complete the action items on time. Special thanks to Mrs. Diane, She is very respectful and gives attention to detail on all levels of required documents. She follows up very promptly on action items. You are in the right place, if your case is handled by the Law offices of Rajiv S Khanna.
What happens to existing/pending green cards?
Nothing. The process continues. Changes in laws are not retroactive.
Its been a long journey that started with completion of masters (F1) visa and today receiving green card (GC). I have been with Rajiv ji and his team since the beginning of my immigration journey (F1(OPT) -> H1 -> H1 Ext.-> Perm -> I140 -> I765 -> I485).
As said by everyone else here in the guestbook i also concur with all the things.
Firstly, they know what they are doing and are best at it. They have a solid knowledge about all the immigration rules, jargon, what can cause potential problem in future and how to handle the complexities a case has.
Secondly, very professional, prompt replies and free consultations. One thing that i liked is that they all are very easy to reach including Rajiv ji itself and that helps a lot in calming down the immigration anxieties of clients.
Best wishes to you and your team.

A child is born to a lawful permanent resident mother during her temporary absence from the U.S. What must the parent do to be able to bring their child back to the United States and obtain LPR status for him/her?
Children born during the temporary visit abroad of a lawful permanent resident (LPR) mother are classified as NA3.
· A child who meets the requirements of the NA3 classification is exempt both the passport and immigrant visa requirement when arriving in the U.S. for the first time.
· The child must apply for admission to the United States within two years of birth.
I was a student on F-1 (MS), and I got my H-1B two years ago. My company has started GC process and already got my I-140 approved. But I want to go back to school this fall (law school), which means I'll have to change my status back to F-1 again.Rajiv and were compiled and reported by our editorial team from comments and blog on immigration.com
