Case Summary:

The field of computer science has notably advanced since our client, a software engineer from China, chose to dedicate his career to it. With extensive experience conducting research as well as a doctoral degree, our client is undoubtedly a researcher at the top of the field with sustained international influence. He hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him prepare and file a strong EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. In a nutshell, we were tasked with proving the value of our client’s research to the US, and we did it by doing the following:

  • We gathered a wealth of information pertaining to his research projects on the development of state-of-the-art physical simulation and controller optimization methods for the improvement of computer graphics and robotics.
  • We reviewed our client’s research summary and concluded that his work addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding computer graphics and its numerous applications in the entertainment industry.
  • Using Google Scholar, we determined that our client’s 10 publications had gathered 172 citations at the time of filing. Furthermore, we noted that he had conducted 40 peer reviews by the time we filed his EB1A petition.
  • We helped our client select recommenders who could support his case. We made sure that the shortlisted candidates were familiar with our client’s work and/or had worked with him. Our client was then advised to contact them for recommendation letters, and he returned with six letters, one of which contained this statement: “[Client] is one researcher who has generated cutting-edge solutions to these problems throughout his career as a computer scientist. Through his research in computer graphics simulation, [Client] has developed precise simulations and optimized controllers for simulating realistic movement that broadly impacted the computer science field and that has useful applications in the fast growing US robotics industry.”

We presented all the information we had gathered in a clear and concise manner to the USCIS, and just 8 days later, our client received notification of EB1A approval. We congratulate him for surpassing this significant milestone in the green card journey, and we thank him for retaining our services to help him file an I-485 application (last step towards a green card).
