Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research scientist based in New Jersey approached North America Immigration Law Group ( when she decided that she wanted to get one step closer to a green card. After we evaluated her credentials, we confirmed that she should file her I-140 petition under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). By the time we were ready to file her petition, we had gathered an immense amount of information pertaining to her work in the field of chemical engineering. We narrowed down what we needed and submitted a concise presentation to the USCIS. These are some of the key points we focused on:

  • We listed the 916 times our client’s work was cited by dependent and independent researchers around the world.
  • Our client’s 9 published scientific articles were mentioned in detail.
  • We noted the 10 times our client conducted peer reviews for several scientific journals.
  • Thanks to our client’s detailed research summary, we concluded that her work is focused on the creation of antimicrobial materials, patterned metal, and polymers, along with the development of next-generation biofuels through the use of genetic and metabolic engineering.

Besides the points listed above, we also incorporated recommendation letters signed by other expert chemical engineers. According to one of them, our client is “an asset to her field, the scientific community, and to the United States at large.” Another recommender supported the significance of her research by stating: “Her work is valuable not only to others in her field, but has numerous benefits for healthcare and industry in the United States.”

Despite the long wait (12 months and 8 days in total), we are glad that our client secured EB1A petition approval. We congratulate her for overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card journey, and we thank her for working with us.
