Case Summary:

An Iranian assistant professor hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him accomplish his goal of securing American permanent residence. He opted to file two I-140 petitions to increase his chances of obtaining petition approval. After months of preparation, we filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) and an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Just 13 days after we filed the EB1A petition, our client received notification of case approval (at the time of writing, his NIW petition was still pending). Our client then retained our I-485 services to adjust his status for permanent residence based on his approved EB1A petition. We are currently awaiting a positive outcome from the USCIS.

What did the EB1A petition contain?

Our client’s petition was composed of a myriad of information related to his achievements in the field of computer science. For instance, we detailed the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored), 16 peer-reviewed conference proceeding articles (15 of them first-authored), and one book chapter in his name. We also noted the 150 times his publications were cited by other researchers. Furthermore, we noted the impressive 18 times he had conducted peer reviews.

As we had to prove to the USCIS that our client is at the top of his field, we also discussed his important work on the various applications of network coding technique in wired and wireless networks. We then demonstrated that our client’s findings significantly contribute to the United States’ cellular industry and, by extension, the economy. To prove our point, we incorporated recommendation letters signed by other computer scientists into the EB1A petition dossier. This is what one of these experts had to say: “Because the United States government is currently interested in providing infrastructures that can withstand disasters and continue to provide communications during harsh conditions, [Client’s] work is beneficial for the U.S. national interest.”

We congratulate our client for securing EB1A petition approval, and we thank him for working with us. As we wait for the USCIS to take action on our client’s I-485 application, we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of computer science here in the US.
