On January 5th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Petitioner in the Field of Astrophysics (Approval Notice).


General Field: Astrophysics

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: January 5th, 2017

Processing Time: 8 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A well-known astrophysicist from India hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help her compose and file a strong EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. After several months of scrupulous work, we filed the case on her behalf and thanks to Premium Processing (PP), received word that her EB1A had been approved just 8 days later.

What did her EB-1A petition packet contain?

Among other things, we included recommendation letters contributed by other experts working in the field of astrophysics. The four letters that we presented to the USCIS advocated for the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition and contained statements like this: “It would be significant loss to the United States if [Client] were unable to continue her current endeavors; the U.S. has consistently funded studies in gravitational wave physics for the last several decades, evidencing the importance of this topic.”

Besides recommendation letters, we also included information on our client’s work on novel gravitational wave data analysis algorithms for coalescing binary astrophysical objects, producing new models for estimating the low frequency performance of laser interferometers, and characterizing noise transients in gravitational wave data. We demonstrated that her findings improve our understanding of the broader universe and the ways in which it has evolved over time. Furthermore, we noted the whopping 3,300 citations gathered from her 69 publications as well as the 5 times she assessed the work of her peers.

Taking the final step to green card success:

Before our client can secure a green card, she must first file an I-485 application. We wish her the best with this step and thank her for choosing us to represent her EB-1A petition. It was a pleasure working with her and we wish her the best as she continues to conduct impactful research in the field of astrophysics.
