Case Summary:

A postdoctoral researcher from India hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to get him one step closer to a green card. Overall, our client filed two EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petitions, the first of which was withdrawn. Less than 5 months later, we refiled another EB1A petition for our client. Although it was issued an RFE, our effective and efficient response to it led to petition approval.

Important information contained in our client’s winning petition packet:

Based on our client’s strengths and credentials, we employed a customized legal strategy to attain EB1A approval. For one, we noted our client’s 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles and one patent as well as the 77 times his publications were cited. We also detailed the 30 times our client had assessed the work of his peers. Further, we discussed his work on the development of advanced catalytic processes for the production of bio-based chemical feedstocks. We persuaded the USCIS that our client’s research is applied toward understanding how catalytic processes may be manipulated and managed so that the chemical industry may begin to respond to the environmental mandate for greener processes and products.

To further fortify our client’s petition, we incorporated recommendation letters signed by other expert chemical engineers. According to one of them, our client’s work is important because it “… facilitated meaningful progress toward maximizing the efficiency of a globally prevalent industrial practice.” These letters undoubtedly played an important role in securing petition approval.

Clearly our methods work as our client’s EB1A petition was approved, bringing him one big step closer to US permanent residency. We congratulate him on this win and wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence with the help of our I-485 DIY Packet.
