Case Summary:

A gifted postdoctoral fellow from China engaged North America Immigration Law Group’s services to help her attain a green card. With a Ph.D. in Chemistry, 17 published articles that had gathered 131 citations, and 56 instances of peer review service, our client had the necessary qualifications to file her case under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Besides the aforementioned professional accomplishments, the petition that we prepared for our client contained detailed accounts of her research on the physical characteristics of semiconductor materials. We also established the value of her findings to the field of materials physics as well as to the United States.

An expert materials physicist, whose letter we included in our EB-1A petition to the USCIS, had this to say about our client’s work: “Her results have influenced […] photonic materials for nearly every country in the world. [Client’s] efforts are therefore of great importance and value globally and it is crucial to the future of the field that she is allowed to remain in her current position in the United States where she has access to the needed resources to continue with her cutting-edge research.” Several other experts in the field volunteered recommendation letters which we included in our well-thought-out petition packet.

Because our client elected to file her EB-1A case under Premium Processing, the adjudication timeline was significantly reduced, and she received an approval notice from the USCIS six days later. We congratulate her on this milestone and wish her the best in advancing the field of materials physics.
