Law offices of Rajiv S Khanna handled my H1B visa application. I am on H4-EAD and the initial consultation from Mr. Khanna was immensely useful. The team members, Shilpa and Anna were very responsive and proactive and the entire process was smooth. I strongly recommend Law offices of Rajiv S Khanna for visa and immigration purposes.

Processing Times Involved in NIW

Question details

If I may verify the processing times involved in NIW. Since it falls under EB2 category, I am assuming it may be a long time before I can get my EAD card and be able to change employers. Also, I want to confirm if there could be issues if I change employers during the process - If so, I'd prefer to change my current employer before starting with it.

You can change employers any time if you are a self-applicant and will continue to work in your stated area of national interest.  But NIW priority date will take the same time as a normal EB-2 application does.  See:

Dear Rajiv & Diane, Thank you for taking time to talk with me yesterday. I was trying to make my case an O-1. Rajiv was upfront in letting me know that it was not an O-1 case. Prior to this, I also benefited from his invaluable advice, which he didn't charge anything, to have got a Back Pay for 10 months. Rajiv earned my trust with his honesty, knowledge and generosity. I would recommend him to those who are in need of professional services in immigration. Best regards, Wendy Zhang

Another H1B Approval After a Period of being out of status and unlawfully present

We were recently retained by an employer whose employee fell out of status due to an omissions by the former counsel. Prior to the employee’s H1B expiration date, the employer tried to file an H1B extension. The employer’s former Counsel utilized an obsolete and inappropriate wage source when filing the LCA. This wage amount was also not representative of what the employee was earning. As a result, the employer had to withdraw the LCA. This circumstance resulted in an untimely filing of the employer’s H1B application and the employee’s status expiring due to no fault of his own.

Successful response to an H-1B petition RFE for a Staff Accountant questioning specialty occupation and degree in a non-accounting field

We assisted petitioner, a public accounting firm, in filing an H-1B petition for beneficiary for the position of staff accountant. We received an RFE requesting additional evidence that the position qualified as a specialty occupation by satisfying at least one of the four qualifying criteria for a specialty occupation.  In our lengthy response, we argued that the job duties, as detailed in the petition, and as compared with OOH’s job description for staff accountant not only comports with but goes beyond OOH guidance in its uniqueness and complexity.
