Case Summary:

A California based postdoctoral research fellow hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to assemble and file a customized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. To prepare our client’s personalized petition dossier, we made sure to collect as much information as we could on his studies in the field of molecular biology. We determined that our client’s research is focused on precisely identifying genes that lead to tumor genesis and/or cleft formation. We also emphasized that his findings contribute to the United States healthcare sector as they have wide-ranging applications such as understanding the mechanisms and the application of new drugs via molecular biology for head and neck diseases.

Presenting evidence of our client’s skills as a researcher:

The importance of allowing our client to continue his research in the US was supported by a prominent professor whose letter of recommendation was included in our well-prepared EB1A petition. This is what he noted: “[Client’s] research also offers the United States numerous benefits. The diseases and conditions of the head and neck that [he] is focused on, including debilitating birth defects, strike citizens across your country and also place a heavy burden on your healthcare sector. [He] has already proven that his work is vital to developing new and better methods for managing these diseases and conditions.” Thisrecommendation letter was presented alongside five others, all of which advocated for the approval of our client’s EB1A petition.

Apart from the letters, our client’s comprehensive EB1A dossier contained ample evidence of his high standing in the field of molecular biology and extraordinary ability as a researcher. For instance, we noted the 154 times his 38 peer-reviewed journal articles and 1 book were cited as well as the 30 times he judged the work of his peers.

Because we had unprecedented insight into how USCIS officers adjudicate I-140 petitions, we effectively presented the many advantages that our client’s continued stay has for the United States. This resulted in I-140 EB1A approval 9 days after filling. This approval is another addition to the long list of over 10,000 approvals that our firm has attained thanks to our personalized services. We congratulate our client for getting a step closer to his green card and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of molecular biology.
