PERM - Labor Certification

PERM approval for a foreign company with minimal presence in USA

The head-quarters for the sponsoring employer were located outside the United States.  The applicant worked in the United States at a branch office, which had fewer than 5 employees.  Because of the head-quarters location and the US branch office size, the DOL questioned the existence of the company in the United States.  We responded with evidence of the sponsoring employer’s business in the United States and the PERM Petition was certified.

PERM Approval for brother of corporate president

The sponsoring employer was a small company (less than 20 employees) that was sponsoring the brother of the president.  The Labor Certification was audited due to the familial relationship, which is a significant issue in the PERM process. We successfully responded by proving that the relationship between the president and the applicant did not influence or affect the PERM Processing.  The I-140 petition and I-485 petitions were approved, and the applicant received his permanent residency.

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.

My ETA form 9089 (PERM) has been certified in the record time of just 5(!) business days after it was filed by your office. Special credit goes to my case manager Ms. Richa Narang and also to Mr. Rajiv Khanna for their restless dedication, diligence, and hard work. You guys have shined by meticulously closing any possible gap there could have been in executing the filing documents. Your advise has been prompt and refreshing. it was always in plain English and right on point on the law without overcomplicating things. Your patience is unmatched. This overall impression echoes the experience I have made when we filed the h-1b for my wife who received her visa in less than a month after filing. I look forward to tackling the next stage (I-140) knowing that things will almost run on auto-pilot. Best wishes to your entire team for 2011. Thanks, Chris Alberti

Dear Rajiv and Vijay, I would like to thank you and your entire staff for great job plowing through many emails/teleconferences/phone calls and documents.  As someone who pays extra attention to detail, it is refreshing to find others working with the same diligence.  Without getting into the cobwebs of my case, Mr. Khanna was introduced to a new law that affected my case.  Rather than bypassing it, we tackled it head on; it did take additional time for both the lawyers and myself, however the LCA was approved.  With such a stressful and time consuming process, Mr. Khanna and his staff, can give their clients not only the knowledge to move forward, but also peace of mind!  H1/LCA (now I-140 and I-485)

BALCA Appeal Leads to Voluntary PERM Certification by CO

In a case decided yesterday, we had filed an appeal to BALCA against a PERM denial by the Certifying Officer (“CO”).  The ground for denial was that the Job Order did not provide the exact salary offered to the foreign worker.  We showed in our appeal that the fault lay with the Job Order form of the State Workforce Agency.  The form did not permit us to enter the higher end of the wage range for our job, where we had offered a wage range instead of an exact figure.  The CO appears to have agreed with us and has withdrawn denial and certified our case.

I want to thank Mr. Rajiv Khanna and his team for taking care for my perm application and getting it done very professionally. I was in a bad situation were my previous perm was denied due to grave mistakes committed by previous lawyer. This is a huge relief for me and am very hopefull that further processes will be smooth as well. thanks, Sanjeev
