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.
PERM - Labor Certification
After a PERM DOL certification petition has been filed for an EB-2 application for someone currently on H1-B, at what stage is it safe to change employers without affecting the application process? In other words, will change in employer mean starting the process anew?
What happens if your H-1 expires before the PERM audit is cleared by DOL. Are we supposed to leave country. I have 20 months of H-1 life left to reach 6 years and my LABOR is in AUDIT status I am just wondering if I get an extension or will I be checked out of USA.
While a PERM audit or even an appeal against a denial after the audit is pending, you would still be entitled to H-1 extensions beyond six years.
I am on TN visa for the more than a year. The company wants to give me some stock option (10-15%). Is that ok to hold stocks of the company you are working for on TN visa, or will it create problem when I apply for renewal of my TN visa. Can I apply for GC on TN visa?
I see no issue with holding stock, but that will be a problem for PERM-based green card. Also, processing green card under TN can be problematic.
I completed my master’s degree last summer and started working with a company from 2 months. I am in OPT status right now and I wanted to know, if I am eligible to file for Green Card process with my current employer. If yes can I file in EB2? I have 2 years IT experience in India If no, do I have to wait until I get H1b. Is the Green card process dependent on H1B?
This question requires your lawyers to assess the case. Generally speaking nothing stops you from filing a PERM application while on OPT and an Eb2 appears possible.
I am on EB3 category and have been working in the IT sector for the last 6 years and one year ago I completed my MBA too. I am currently working as a contractor and using my EAD. I am on Adjustment of status right now. Is it possible to change my category from EB3 to EB2?
It is possible, but the green card will have to be started again from PERM.
