  1. Over the past several years, there have been extraodinary delays for most employment based green card cases filed on behalf of Indian citizens. The primary reason for these delays is the unavailability of visas that permit an applicant to reach the last stage of the process (adjustment of status). The Department of State issues a monthly bulletin that sets forth visa availability which you might find helpful (http://travel.state.gov/visa/bulletin/bulletin_1770.html). General information on the employment green card process is also available at www.uscis.gov.


  2. Quite frankly ... we have too many H-1B people from India who are all 'fighting' for the same small number of immigrant visas (aka: greencards) that are available each year.

    You just have to wait your turn in line ... sorry.
