Comment: 
Rajiv has been of incredible help to me for the last few years. I’d applied for the 485 Adjustment of Status and it looked like I’d be stuck in the queue for years before my greencard arrived. So, as I thought about my career, I decided to go back to school for a Ph.D. However, I was told by most everyone that getting an F-1 visa to go back to school would be very difficult. Rajiv gave me excellent advice to still go ahead and apply for the F-1 – I ended up getting it with no trouble whatsoever. As the years went by, I then ended up getting the greencard as well – Rajiv has been really helpful in letting me know the specific requirements (in terms of the job classifications, travel etc) related to obtaining permanent residency. I have been following his advice and I have been really pleased – he’s been absolutely accurate in all of his advice and I’m certainly counting on him in times to come as well.

Comment: 
I wish to thank Rajiv Ji and other members of his team for brilliantly handling my F1 visa reinstatment case, which I lost due to Tri Valley fraud. Rajiv Ji stepped in as an angel in the toughest times in my life and painstakingly prepared and filed the I 539 application. He is very kind and went a step ahead and as a true samaritan, he filed it pro bono. I am very very grateful to him and his highly qualified and thoroughly professional staff for the timely help, guidance and the success, which I owe to immigration.com.  

F-1 Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

As part of our Curricular Practical Training (CPT), I completed my summer internship with a company on 2nd of the September. So the formal procedure for extending the work is to apply again for the new CPT but somehow my second CPT delayed and got approved on 28th of September. Between 3rd and 28th for around three weeks, company asked me to work and I did. At the time I was not aware of the consequences but now I am in a great trouble. What do I do?

You have two choices that I can see: apply for reinstatement or go outside USA and reapply for a visa.

Unless the context shows otherwise, all answers here were provided by Rajiv and were compiled and reported by our editorial team from comments and blog on immigration.com
