Case Summary:

Merely a week after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a neuroscience expert from China, the USCIS approved her petition.

In preparing our client’s EB1A petition, we focused our efforts on proving that she is an extraordinary researcher in the field of neuroscience and that she is an asset to the United States, particularly its medical sector. To back up our argument, we included a myriad of information pertaining to our client’s achievements in the field. These included, but were not limited to: the hundreds of citations gathered from her handful of publications, and the close to one dozen times she had judged the work of her peers.

According to one of our client’s supporters (a fellow expert in the field of neuroscience), our client “has produced some of the highest quality work in neurobiology and neuroscience…” Another expert stated that she is “one of the finest researchers in neuroscience and her contributions to the field could not be replaced by another, less qualified researcher.” These quotes are excerpts from the recommendation letters which they, along with two other experts, volunteered in support of our client’s EB1A petition.

Besides information on our client’s accomplishments and recommendation letters, we included details pertaining to her research in her EB1A petition. We informed the USCIS that our client’s work is focused on what contributes to age-related cognitive decline. Further, we proved that her research advances our understanding of the neurological basis of various forms of mental illnesses and age-related cognitive disorders.

We are pleased that our hard work paid off and that our client attained EB1A approval. Not long after she received notification of case approval, she retained our I-485 services to help her and her dependent adjust their status for permanent residence. As we wait for the USCIS to take action on their applications, we wish our client the best as she continues to progress the important field of neuroscience.
