Case Summary:

A Chinese postdoctoral research fellow with years of experience in the field of condensed matter physics hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him with the first step in obtaining permanent residency in the United States. Before countersigning the retainer agreement, we made sure that he fulfilled the requirements laid down by the USCIS. After evaluating his credentials, we determined that he should file his I-140 petition under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Despite being the toughest category, our client’s academic and professional achievements laid the foundation for a solid case. Here are several of his impressive achievements which were mentioned in the EB1A petition packet:

  1. Publications: Our client had a sterling record of 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in top-notch journals in the field, and one book.
  2. Citation Record: His work had been cited 1,500 times in various studies conducted by researchers all around the world.
  3. Peer review Work: By the time we filed his EB1A case, he had conducted at least 28 peer reviews and served on the editorial board of two journals, hence, proving the value of his opinions and his high standing in the field.

To build a strong case, we argued that our client’s work addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding the anomalous physical properties of quantum materials that can lead to a better use of these physical properties for technological applications. We went a step further and included several recommendation letters to endorse our client’s EB1A petition. As an example, the quote below was taken from a letter contributed by an assistant professor at a leading technological university in the US: “For the United States to continue to lead the way in technological innovation, as much of this research must be done in this country as possible . . . The continuation of his career as a physics researcher benefits all of humanity”

With the help of Premium Processing, adjudication of the case was expedited and an approval was issued in just 4 days. We congratulate our client on this win and wish him the best as he files an I-485 application— the final step in the green card process.
