Employment Based Green Cards
I contacted the Law Offices of Mr. Rajiv S. Khanna for secondary advice in regards to my and my husband's green card process and filing of G-639. Via telephone conference I received helpful advice, more detailed information and clarification than I had received from my other lawyer. I found Mr. Khanna very knowledgeable. I wish I had come to Mr. Khanna's office at the start of my green card process. I strongly recommend his service. /EAB
If the Master's degree is accredited, you do not need post-Master's experience for EB-2. There can be some issue about the 3+2 pattern of education, but an accredited Master's should fix it.
Rajiv and Art - I can't thank you enough for the magic you did in order to get my green card which was almost next to impossible. I applied my first green card through another lawyer in 2002. That got rejected. We went to the court in Washington to challenge the rejection (through another lawyer) but lost the case. I was basically asked to pack my bags and leave the country. Luckily I had applied through another company (another division within our company) and got H1 to extend my stay and refiled my green card through the same lawyer but he said it might take a long time and my case will go into review since it has been rejected the first time. At this point i reached out to Rajiv Khanna to apply my green card again (3rd time). He has an excellent team. Art helped with my case. I was very surprised that instead of me pushing Rajiv's team, they were pushing me to work promptly. Art was always on top of the case. Whenever i had doubts, Rajiv was always available for consultation. . I finally have my green card in just 2 years since i applied thanks to Rajiv's effort. Please go with Rajiv and relax, his team will make sure your case moves at a fast track.
Three options: Extraordinary Ability Aliens, National Interest Waiver and Investment (EB-5).
1. The actual process for the Foreign Labor Certification varies depending upon the program being used. This http://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta.gov website contains information regarding the process for filing for each of the programs under the Department of Labor's (DOL) jurisdiction.
1. Get an H-1 transfer.
1. You must have:
Your NVC Case Number (refer to the message you received from NVC)
Your Invoice I.D. number (refer to the message you received from NVC)
1. Under the current laws, self-application seems not to be an option for you.
2. There are only three categories for employment-based self-application: EB-1A (Extraordinary ability alien), National Interest Waiver and EB-5, investment. There is no category I can think of under which you may qualify for self-application (without an employer's help). If you would like a consultation to understand further, join our free community conference call. A one-on-one consultation may not be necessary.
I am reporting here comments from and my responses to a member of our community, "Julissa," regarding whether or how she could apply for a green card herself if she has a Master's degree. Do note, if a set of new immigration laws gets passed, all this could change.
