Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: November 3rd, 2016

Case Summary:

Merely 10 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a research associate from China, the USCIS approved her case. Our client is now one big step closer to her goal of becoming an American permanent resident.

As EB-1A is one of the toughest visa categories to obtain petition approval, our legal team and support staff worked tirelessly to obtain as much information pertaining to our client’s research in the field of biological and chemical process systems engineering. We left no stone unturned and amassed an abundance of information to build a strong EB-1A case for her. We paid special attention to her citation count, publication record, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 103 citations, 10 scientific articles, and 7 instances of peer review service.

Our main goal was to convince the USCIS that our client is a force to be reckoned with and that her findings are of extreme importance to the United States. Thanks to the comprehensive research summary that our client supplied us so that we could better understand her work, we concluded that her research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding chemical process operations, biomass treatment methods, and other process systems to benefit the American pharmaceutical and petrochemical industry. To support our argument, we urged our client to obtain recommendation letters from a handful of her peers. We helped her narrow down the list and settled on six experts working in the field, all of whom had worked with our client and/or knew of her research. According to one of them: “So long as [Client] remains in the United States, and is provided access to the ample scientific resources of your country, this is a mutually beneficial situation for both parties. By harboring her talents, the U.S. research community is able to direct [Client’s] skills toward the greatest problems in industry today.”

Final step in the green card process:

Now that our client has an approved EB-1A petition, she can take the final step towards her green card. All that stands in her way is the I-485 application. Once the USCIS approves her I-485, she will become a permanent resident. We wish her the best with this step and thank her for working with our law firm.
