    The problem is not that the name is mentioned incorrectly, just that it is not in "first name/given name" and "last name/surname" format.

    All you need to do is:
    1) Write a cover letter to the Indian consulate that has jurisdiction on your case based on state of residence, requesting an "Observation" in your passport clarifying your "first name" as --- and your "last name" as ---
    2) Fill up a miscellaneous services form (available on consulate website). Attach 1 passport photo. Under "PLEASE ISSUE", check "Others" and write "Observation in passport to clarify 'first name', 'last name'"
    3) Include a bank cashier's check of $10.00 payable to "Consulate General of India"
    4) Include a self addressed and pre-paid USPS express mail envelope in the package.

    If you send the package to the consulate using overnight service, you should receive the passport with observation within 5-7 business days. If applying in person, they may do it on the same day.

    Well said ! $20 is not a lot but if you are first time contributor, the mind set just changes after you contribute and you become part of this organisation. And that is what we want - active participation !

    We have reached 40%. To reach 50% we need $6000 more. If more people can contribute, we can reach this in no time.

    The core and a lot of serious members have already contributed.

    There are 2 mind sets of people on this forum:
    1) I have contributed $500+ , I do not need to contribute $20 more, In anycase what is my
    $20 going to do?.
    2) I have never contributed, but I am ashamed of making my first contribution of only $20.
    (Although that is what I am comfortable doing at this time.)

    Both the above mindsets are wrong because If we have 7000+ members, out of which say 1000 have already contributed, that leaves us with 6000 members. If 6000 members contribute $1 each, we are at $ 6000 - 50% met.
    Now all are not going to do it.
    So you see $20 is still a good amount to start.

    Let us all refrain from using bad language. America prides itself on its freedom of speech. Everybody has the right to speak their mind, but let us be mindful of how we say it!

    For all those of you who are ticked off by Sherman and the likes, please come to Washington DC on the 18th and prove them wrong. If we speak loud enough, we will be heard.

    See you all at DC on the 18th!

    Agreed. The only way to answer this is to be present at the DC rally.

    No, it is not always a 2 month gap. Normally RD (on your receipt), the data entry date (you see online as "your case was received on..."), and ND should be in quick succession. It was only in July/Aug 07 when due to high volumes many cases (including mine) waited for data entry for months, as no center wanted to accept that additional responsbility. Those whose cases were entered in July/Aug 07, became ahead of those whose cases were entered in Sept and Oct 07, no matter when they filed or what their RD (as the receipt). People with PD in 2005 and 2006 who got GC last year were those lucky ones who cases were entered in the system in July, Aug (and may be some in Sept) 07. My case was entered in Oct 07, although I filed on July 2' 07. I did not get GC at that time, though my PD is May 04.

    When did you get your GC?

    I believe we should indicate our thanks to IV in terms of funding as well.
    Also we need to stick together in future as well.

    Filing I-485 is not the end of it. We still have a long way to go.

    Having diversity AND country quota for skilled employment is affirmative action gone waco. EB skilled immigration is to allow businesses to hire foreign labor for jobs they can't find American Citizens. Now to restrict businesses to discriminate based on the country of birth is just riduculous. Next do Universities apply affirmative action to their international student recruitement?

    Indians and Chinese make up the largest group of international students in Engineering and Science. US citizens make up less than 50% of those graduating in Science and Engineering in Master's and PhD programs. Now businesses should not be penalized if they can't fill their highly skilled jobs with Iranians and Tongans and any other ROW countries.

    We have a diversity lottery for nationals of those countries who would not make it out on merit and need a leg up. There may be a few Indian consulting companies who favor Indians, but they are the people who pay wages and know best. Similarly just because Americans prefer to buy Japanese cars we can't create an "affirmative action" and prevent americans from buying Japanese cars. We can't prevent walmart from stocking chinese products. So why force employers not to hire Indians and Chinese through creating quotas for highly skilled jobs?

    No meaningful immigration reforms can be achieved as long as skilled immigration is based on country quotas. Next we know there will be quotas for marrying foreigners to add to diversity. If you marry a mexican there is retrogression but if you marry a citizen of Vanuatu then green card is processed in ROW:)

    I was just making my point how ridiculous it is to have quotas for skilled immigration but not for others including asylum cases.

    How do you come to these conclusions what congress intended. AC21's main provisions were to recapture unused visas for certain years; extend h-1b beyond six years; allow someone to change a job after 485 pending for more then six months; allow unused visas to be allocated to oversubscribed countries on a quarterly basis rather then in the fourth quarter.

    Above is what was changed. There was no lifting of country cap. If you go to the earlies visa bulletins listed; you will see that Dominican Republic at one time was retrogressed. I haven't looked at it in a long time but if someone goes to the historical visa bulletins pre ac21 then you may see significant movement in retrogressed countries in the fourth quarter of uscis fiscal year (july to september). This is what changed.

    However, the ac21 part about unused visas only stipulated if in any quarter there were less applicants then visas available then spillover can happen in that quarter. However, as can be seen in 2005 that weasn't the case and there shouldn't have been spillover.

    In another posting you mentioned that your employer doesn't care whether you are Indian or chines or pakistani or anything else. This is true they want you for your skill. However, how did you get into USA. Chinese generally go to school here and will work wherever they get a job. However, Indian nationals have designed a system to get their realitves here through h-1b. Selective recrutiing is performed to get fellow compatriates here that couldn't otherwise get here becuase they have no connections. I ask some of my clients how they get employees. They tell me they are sponsoring their classmates, their cousins, etc. for h-1b.

    Therefore, you may think it is not fair; and perhaps it is not fair but perhaps government knows that certain systems have been designed and they value diversity.

    In business definition a skilled worker is not someone with two years of experience, a bachelors or even a masters. A skilled worker is someone with substantial experience. That is 15 years and makes $200K to $300K. Employment base immigration is just an accomodation to allow a certain number of people into USA. In my mind it is just an accomodation or goodwill.

    If the EB system was designd to attract the best and brightest minds; skilled worker definition or eb2 or eb3 definition would have a much different meaning and would follow business rather then USCIS definition. It would be much different. There would be no quota. It would follow normal business practicses. That is we, can't find a us citizen or greencard holder and we need you. In real business sens it would be an offer, acceptance and you would start in a couple of months. However, it doesn't follow normal business rules/practices because maybe the powers that be look at it as just an accomodation rather then a real necessity.

    he is just expressing concern that more action is not taken. i wrote param a pm to explain, also this thread will not continue indefinitely. we do however need to be clear in our stand and in our actions. we should be able to enunciate what we believe without resorting to the kind of vitriol that is thrown at us. personally i am waiting to see that- it's important even to grow as a community and achieve success that we develop this ability. our strength lies in the facts not in any hate or rhetoric.

    be rest assured that ip's of those that post such stuff are tracked for action.

    Thunderbold, Sorry for your situation. Here is my observation/suggestion.

    Being an immigrant you have broken the law by hiring someone to work illegally. Didn't you and your wife break the law?

    You have already witnessed a child abuse and now pondering whether to report this to a law enforcement or not. Again you are breaking the law by not reporting a child abuse. Remember, abetting a crime is also a crime.

    This country has given us so much including good wealth and health(except GC) and we enjoy every thing, but in return what we do is to do these kind of illegal activities.

    This country let us and our spouse to work, make hell lot of money. I am not saying we are making easy money, but after having two incomes, we run around with coupons and look for cheap things or do things that are cheap. WHY?

    What are we going to do with that money man? This is nothing but a greediness.

    Anyway, your child has gone thru a nightmare and as a parent/father you MUST report this to a law enforcement office. You can not let this child abuser go scot-free.

    Note: When you can hire a nanny that is legal/citizen for $350/week, then why did you hire someone illegal?

    Thats absolutely correct.

    And we are sending letters to USCIS saying they don't follow AC-21 rules (not law) properly !!!

    My wife got her name changed on the passport last week from the DC embassy. Her original Indian passport had only her first name and her last name was blank. Her US documents (Visa, SSN, Drivers License, etc) had her name as <first_name> FNU (Family Name Unknown). For a passport name change, the Indian Embassy requires you to:
    1. Create an Affidivate in India saying that the name needs to be changed from <first_name> <blank> to <first_name> <last_name>.
    2. Publish the name change in a national newspaper.
    3. Publish the name change in a local US newspaper.

    Along with the name change application, you have to submit the original affidivate, the paper clipings of the Indian newspaper and the local US newspaper.

    Alternatively, if you have a marriage certificate and the marriage certificate lists your name as <first_name> <last_name> rather than <first_name> <blank> (as on your passport), you do not need the affidivate and a copy of the marriage certificate is sufficient.

    The renew/change-passport-by-mail service that the indian embassy provides will take 10-12 business days (excluding Indian public holidays :) ). If you go in person to the consulate/embassy you can get your passport back within 3-5 days.

    Atleast as far as I know, the DC embassy doesn't have any same-day service(don't take my word for that, I could be wrong). Good luck !
    Hi, I really really need help. Not sure if HSD31 still logins and can help me as my case is exactly like his, if not please someone help me here.

    in my son's passport his first name is correct and last name is FNU. I am trying to follow the steps given above but not able to understand #1 above 1)Create an Affidivate in India saying that the name needs to be changed from <first_name> <blank> to <first_name> <last_name>.
    what is this, why do we need this and who will verify this affidivate.

    Please reply.

    Sorry that I had to wait this long to contribute. Been tight with my debt and payments and also secretly monitoring this board and praying for your success. My first contribution of $20 was sent via paypal.

    I personally feel that not a lot of people out there know about paypal or are just too scared to transact online.

    It would be awesome if a portion of the money could be used to start a mailing campaign via snail mail by including a contribution plea letter along with a form that can be filled and mailed with a cheque to IV. Just like those credit card offers. Obviously to all the registered members.

    Also, psychologically, when you navigate to the contribution page, the list of contribution amount options starts with $100. And then all the way to the right is the "other" option. It takes time for the eye to get to the "other" amount option as a result of which an anonymous/interested user navigating to the page sees contribution amounts in multiples of $100 thereby creating doubt/hesitation without realizing that you can choose the "other" option to contribute in smaller numbers. It would be great if you could put in a blank text field first and then the other options with multiples of $100.

    Just my 0.02 cents.

    Keep pushing and for all you guys watching in the sidelines watch "Gandhi" - the movie, for inspiration. Seriously!

    Even if you don't contribute, walk up to Blockbuster or go online on Netflix and rent the movie out.

    IV is doing a tremoundus job. I have been watching and waiting silently until I saw the movie "Gandhi".

    I know many of you single non-immigrants living alone don't have to shop around for Christmas. I know I don't because my family doesn't live here. So maybe you can gift IV with a small contribution.

    Maybe you can skip a carwash this month (for all those living in the south, i.e.) and do it yourself and send in the money to IV. Small drops of water make an ocean. So don't think your contribution, however small it may be, is not going to help.

    If you really don't have the money to contribute, atleast buy a $1 greeting card and a $0.39 stamp and send it to IV thanking them for fighting on your behalf. Its that simple.

    Good luck and god bless.
    Thanks for your contribution and appreciation for the work IV and its members are doing.

    Of course they go by receipt date, but question is what is the receipt date? Each center enters data, and places folder in sequence of when they, the Center, received the file (and decided to accept it). This date is close to ND, but may be quite different than RD on your receipt, sometimes by several months (due to noone accepting huge volumes of July/Aug07 filings, or for some reason disputing as to which center should work on the case).

    There are thousands of instances where cases were filed in July 07, but entered into the system in Sept/Oct 07. For all purposes, their RD is what you see online as "your case was received on...", which is close to ND.

    See my earlier posts in this thread. If you ask a center if they are processing cases based on RD or ND, they will always say RD, because that is true based on their defintion of RD.

    They will state they go by RD but check what RD they have in their system, does not matter what RD you have in your receipt.
    May be it is an issue for transfer cases only where initially RD was issued by another service center say VSC and then case was transferred to TSC and TSC is using RD the date when they got the case. At least that is case for my app they told me. My lawyer is following up and if they don't fix it i Plan on using Congressman, Senator etc even a law suit as it is ridiculous that TSC sen the app to VSC for data entry and is not willing to honor the RD which VSC entered.

    as many are aware, there was a huge rush to buy and sell pre-approved labors during july-august 2007, when all the priority dates were suddenly made current. Tens of thousands of labors were sold by fraudulent consulting companies to many questionable gc seekers, who hadn�t even started the process till then.

    It is those substituted labors which are clogging the pipelines now. Just think, last month eb3-i stood at november 2001. Now it is completely unavailable. It can�t possibly be because so many pending labors with such old priority dates suddenly got cleared this month, and beneficiary of these labors filed 140+485 together. I seriously doubt that a candidate whose labor is pending since such a long time is even keeping that gc process alive. In all likelihood he/she must have moved on in life.

    There is only one explanation. These labors were already pre-approved. It is the attached i-140 on these labors that are getting approved rapidly. And the subsequent i-485 petitions on these applications are depleting the visa numbers.

    The reason of this post is not to start an argument about the ethics of labor substitution. It is just a fyi post to explain the seemingly inexplicable. The chickens are coming home to roost.

    Are you one of the admin or you know their secret locations?


    Please stop using condescending remarks. I have been reading all your posts and your tone is going from bad to worst. It is not possible to place all the threads on the home page. We make a decision to put threads on the home page that we believe are important for our effort. If you feel otherwise, that is ok. But it is not ok for you to use derogatory language. If you feel so passionate, why don't you start your organization and spend your time, energy and resources and advocate for the cause instead of posting derogatory messages for others. It is very easy to fire when the gun is on someone else shoulder. We understand and share the frustration with green card delays, but that does not give you license to use derogatory language. Everyday there is new thread asking for update, leadership, direction etc. It is not practical to reply to every such post on this forum. That too does not give you license to use derogatory language. In last over 2.5 years we have answered many thousands questions in forums, emails and phone calls. I have heard many a times from my fellow team mates that not once did anyone receive a Thank you note from someone after that someone was fully able to resolve the situation after receiving reply from my colleagues at IV. None of us spend time on this cause to receive a Thank you note, however, posts like yours makes us wonder that are we a community of thankless educated immigrants who are so obsessed with our individual case that all that we want is instant gratification to exactly know the current status of our green cards, without which automatically IV is at fault. Just so that you know, people spend 30 sometimes 40 hours a week over the period of years, just to read a post from someone like you. We received a call at 12:30am yesterday from someone asking about changing to another company because his current employer was not being fair. So when you mock, please make it clear that you are not the one standing in the line of fire and you are not the one who wants to stand in the line of fire. You just wants to be the one to mock and ridicule. If you are serious about taking the baton, please let us know your phone number and we will post it on the website so that people can call you when they have a question. Lets talk about passing the baton, how about we start from posting your phone number on the website, lets see how you take that challenge. No one is paid to work on IV. People spend time on this effort out of their good-will and passion for the cause. So please be respectful towards others for their efforts. And please stop being a pain in the neck and talk some sense if you are serious about picking up the baton. Email us your phone number and you will see it on the website within an hour.

    Now its time for you to go to all the forums of the world and say that IV Admin is rude and dictatorial or whatever.

    All the best,
