Success Stories: Employer-Sponsored EB-1B Petition and Green Card Approved for Staff Scientist from India in the Field of Chemical Engineering


Client’s Testimonial:

“I recently did my I-140 through North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) after I read several forums and spoke with my friends. They handled my application extremely well. Their process is very streamlined and efficient. I had to speak with attorney (Victoria Chen) only one time and the rest of the process was online. My EB1B I-140 application was approved in less than 10 days (premium processing)!!”

In January 2017, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Staff Scientist in the Field of Chemical Engineering (Approval Notice).


Case Summary:

Just 8 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition for a staff scientist from India, the USCIS approved it. As EB1B is employment-based, our client had to secure his employer’s full support before retaining our services.

Compiling data to build a strong EB1B case:

We had to prove that our client demonstrated international recognition in his field of chemical engineering and had at least 3 years of teaching or research experience in the same field. We did this by gathering a wealth of information regarding his achievements. These are some of the points we included in his EB1B petition packet:

  • We listed his citation count at the time of filing: Over 250 citations gathered from 10 publications.
  • Our client’s peer review experience was noted: Over 20 reviews conducted on behalf of various top-tier scientific journals.
  • We reviewed and summarized his work in the field of chemical engineering.

To bolster our client’s petition, we urged him to obtain recommendation letters from his peers. He returned with six letters, all of which advocated for the approval of his EB1B petition.

Not long after our client’s EB1B petition was approved, he retained us to file I-485 applications for himself and his spouse. We worked diligently to put together their applications and submitted it on their behalf. Less than 2 months after filing, the USCIS approved their applications. We congratulate our client and his spouse for obtaining their green cards and we thank them for trusting us to help them accomplish their dream of becoming American permanent residents.
