Case Summary:

Merely 5 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a postdoctoral research associate from India, Texas Service Center (TSC) took action on his case and granted their approval. This is a big win for our client as he can now file I-485 applications for himself and his dependent without needing to wait several years for his priority date to become current.

EB-1A is a very hard visa category to break into. Green card applicants with approved EB-1A petitions are considered the cream of the crop in their respective fields. In this case, our client certainly plays a leadership role in the field of materials science. His extensive experience conducting fieldwork has resulted in the publications of 18 articles, all of which appeared in well-known scientific journals. Thanks to Google Scholar, we were able to determine our client’s citation count at the time of filing: 391 citations. Furthermore, we noted the 19 times he judged the work of his peers for various journals.

In a strong show of support for a fellow researcher, six of our client’s peers agreed to sign recommendation letters. These letters contained statements that verified the value of our client’s research on the synthesis of materials and the characterization of their properties for specific heterogeneous and bio-catalytic applications, oil spill cleanup, and the removal of metal ion contaminants from water. They also noted the significance of our client’s work to researchers such as themselves, all of whom have dedicated their careers to progressing the field of materials science. Here is what a couple of our client’s recommenders had to say about our client and his investigations:

“Most importantly, this extremely beneficial research is useful in the oil spill cleanup process. Since the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, Americans have become very aware of the detrimental effects on oceans and wildlife caused by these oil-related disasters, and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 dramatically heightened the need for chemical tools that have a demonstrated capacity to separate oil from water. Inarguably, new ideas and pathways for dealing with this issue are desperately needed, which is exactly where [Client’s] research leads.” –CSO, USA

“Should [Client] not be allowed to continue his research in your country, then the process of coming up with new nanomaterials for the energy sector is sure to suffer entirely avoidable delays.” –Professor, India

Not long after our client received news of EB-1A petition approval, he retained our expert services to file I-485 applications for himself and his spouse. We wish them the best with the final step in the green card process and look forward to congratulating them on becoming permanent residents.
