Rajiv, Diane, June, and Kunal worked with me to get my EB1A approved. I shared my CV and credentials with Rajiv ji just as I was graduating out of my PhD and again got in touch with him after a year. This time he showed conviction in my profile and that gave me the confidence to move forward and apply for EB1A category. The team's efforts in preparing my file and insights in my case were tremendous. I just got my EB1A approved, all thanks to this team. I listened to their advice and had faith in their guidance and would suggest others to believe in them. If they say there is a good chance, then there probably is. They have years of experience in this field. I strongly recommend Rajiv and team for help related to immigration.

Writ of Mandamus against delay

Question details

I am currently pending I-485 (EB3, skilled worker employment based, priority date Oct 2008) since April 2014. I submitted inquiries through congressman, they received a letter that my case is on hold indefinitely. Do you recommend filing Writ of Mandamus or would that cause a denial? What other actions can I take, I've submitted a case through the Ombudsman and met with a USCIS officer through Infopass appointment (who told me nothing). No RFEs have been issued for this case, I-140 was approved and fingerprinting done (twice, since first set expired).

See clip from Attorney Rajiv S. Khanna's conference call video that addresses this question.

Basic Criteria for Extraordinary Ability

This morning, I was working on explaining to a client (whom I respect greatly), one of the foremost musicians from India, how EB1 (Extraordinary Ability) category applies to musicians and performers. As I was sending him the basic information on EB1 category, I thought I will share the general criteria with all of you. This information is for EA, generally and applies to all fields - not just music. See attached.

Regards to all. Rajiv.
