Case Summary:

With 20 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 4 book chapters to her name as well as a whopping 413 citations gathered from her work, there is no denying that our client, a postdoctoral researcher from Canada, is a leader in the field of biomedical sciences. With a clear goal of becoming an American permanent resident, our client hired us to prepare and file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. After carefully evaluating her credentials, we confirmed that we could convince the USCIS to approve her EB-1A.

We did this by focusing on three main points: our client’s citation count (413 citations), publication record (20 publications) and her peer review experience. When we filed her case, our client had already conducted 14 peer reviews on behalf of several high impact scientific journals. Furthermore, her role as guest associate editor of three journals elevated her standing in the field. Seeing that only highly respected experts are invited to assess the work of others, our client’s impressive peer review and editorial records make her one of the most respected researchers working on the molecular and genetic factors of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

Besides details related to her research, our client’s well-prepared EB-1A petition also contained four recommendation letters contributed by other experts in the field. According to one of them: “The profound implications of [Client’s] findings in both of the aforementioned projects have garnered high levels of recognition from her colleagues in biomedical Sciences. In fact, they have helped to propel her to a place at the top of her field.” Another recommender noted: “Her future endeavors are certain to continue establishing key mechanisms of ALS that will undoubtedly play an even more pivotal role in developing treatments for the disease.” These words of support lent a hand in persuading the USCIS that our client’s continued presence in the U.S. is of extreme importance to the nation.

Overall, the USCIS only spent 7 days adjudicating our client’s EB-1A petition. We have Premium Processing (PP) to thank for the shortened timeline. PP is an add-on option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to receive action on their cases within 15 days instead of the lengthy 4-9 months. Armed with an EB-1A petition, our client is ready to tackle the second and final portion of the green card process: filing an I-485 application. We wish her the best with this and thank her for working with North America Immigration Law Group (
