Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group recently had the pleasure to work with a material scientist from China. Our client hired us to help him file an I-140 petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category, which we did efficiently and effectively. As our client elected to upgrade his case to be adjudicated under Premium Processing 12 days after it was filed, he received an approval notice from Nebraska Service Center just 10 days after the upgrade.

EB-1A Petition Dossier:

Part of our legal services entailed helping our client narrow down a list of experts in his field of materials chemistry. We asked our client to approach the shortlisted experts and request for recommendation letters. Six of these specialists obliged and their testimonials played a big role in convincing the USCIS that our client’s petition deserved to be approved. One of our client’s recommenders described our client’s work as “… crucial to scientific advancements that are addressing pressing environmental concerns, and the loss of his considerable talents as a leading researcher would surely constitute a major setback.” A second expert wrote, “[Client’s] many impressive accomplishments have unmistakably established him as one of the top scientists in the field today, and he has demonstrated an exceptional ability to consistently produce exciting new research addressing some of the field’s key challenges.”  

Besides third party support, we also documented elements of our client’s professional portfolio. We noted the 352 citations to his work, the 64 times he conducted peer reviews, and his 11 publications. Most importantly, we carefully reviewed and detailed our client’s various research ventures on synthesis and electrochemical studies and proved their significance to the United States.

Favorable Conclusion:

This EB-1A petition approval allows our client to partake in the final portion of the green card process: the I-485 application. Once this is approved, he will be welcomed into the country as an official United States permanent resident. We wish him well with this and thank him for selecting us to represent his EB1A case.
