Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your diligent petition preparation and quick reply for all my questions. I would highly recommend you for all my friends who are in green card preparation.”

On January 13th, 2017, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Research Chemist in the Field of Organic Materials Chemistry (Approval Notice).


General Field: Organic Materials Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Chemist

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: January 13th, 2017

Processing Time: 9 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 9 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition for a research chemist from India, the USCIS approved his case. As EB-1B is an employer-sponsored I-140 category, our client had to obtain his company’s full support before retaining our services. After his company agreed to furnish us with the relevant paperwork needed for EB1B, we started work on our client’s case.

Gathering data:

Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client’s work in the field of organic materials chemistry is of great importance to the United States. We went about this by gathering as much information as we could on our client’s research efforts. Thanks to the comprehensive research summary which he provided us, we were able to determine that his work—on the use of organic fluorescent dyes for the development of conjugate polymers, oligomers, small molecules, and hydrogels for light harvesting, bio-imaging, and sensing applications—benefits the nation’s healthcare and medical sectors in various ways.

Putting it all together:

We bolstered our client’s petition by including information on his various achievements in the field. For instance, we listed the 448 times his work was cited by other researchers, the 13 publications to his name, and the 13 times he had assessed the work of his peers.

Adding supporting information:

Furthermore, we incorporated recommendation letters volunteered by other experts working in the field. According to one of them, our client “… is a top researcher in the field who has outperformed the vast majority of his contemporaries. His acumen and experience in organic chemistry and related fields makes him a nearly irreplaceable asset to the scientific community of the United States.”

Securing approval:

Our client elected to file his petition under Premium Processing (PP), which greatly reduces the wait time for a decision, but we also believe that our highly detailed presentation lent a hand in the swift approval of this case. We congratulate him for obtaining notification of case approval in just 9 days, and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence by filing an I-485 application.
