General Field: Neuroscience

Case Summary:

Just 8 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for an Indian postdoctoral fellow, the USCIS approved his case. We have no doubt that the customized EB1A petition we prepared for our client led the way to case approval.

What did the comprehensive EB1A petition contain?

Our goal was to showcase our client’s various strengths and skills. We wanted the USCIS to know that he is more than capable of carrying out impactful research that benefits the United States. Therefore, we detailed his work in the field of neuroscience, particularly his research on the development of neuroprosthetic devices to aid patients with neurological disabilities. By the time we were ready to file our client’s EB1A petition, we had amassed plenty of proof that his work benefits the civilian disabled population as well as the quality of life of disabled veterans.

We also listed the 170 times our client’s 8 publications were cited as well as the 30 times he had judged the work of his peers for various scientific journals. Not just that, we urged our client to reach out to several of his peers and ask for letters of support. These letters noted the significance of his studies not just to the US, but the field as a whole. For example, this is what one of our client’s recommenders said about the importance of his work: “Considering the high incidence of stroke in the United States, and the long-term disabilities it causes, [Client’s] work is crucial for improving the quality of life of many Americans.”

The approval of this EB1A case is yet another example of our impressive record of helping our clients attain I-140 approval. With over 10,000 approved cases, it is clear that our firm knows just what the USCIS is looking for when deciding whether to approve a petition. Not just that, the fact that we have worked on so many successful I-140 cases gives us the upper hand when deciding what should go into a petition packet.

We thank our client for trusting us to help him get this far in the green card process, and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the important field of neuroscience.
