Case Summary:

A Postdoctoral Fellow from India hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to aid him obtain NIW (National Interest waiver) approval. As an expert in the field of the neuroscience, our client proposes to continue his research on the cellular and molecular mechanisms related to schizophrenia. To build his impactful case, we carefully went through his credentials and submitted substantial evidence of his current research and future research plans.

Our vast experience in dealing with self-sponsored visa petitions equipped us with perfect legal strategies to help our client achieve NIW approval. To begin with, we validated that our client had comprehensively reviewed at least 15 papers for 9 reputed journals. Apart from this, our client had an impressive record of 7 peer-reviewed journal article publications which received a total of 54 citations, thereby demonstrating that his research is widely recognized and relied upon in the field of neuroscience.

Alongside the aforementioned information, we included recommendation letters signed by other influential researchers. One recommender confirmed how nationally important our client’s research is: : “In modern America, approximately 3.5 million people have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and it is the leading causes of disability in the United States. Scientists such as [client] are working to compile the vast sum of research needed to address and treat schizophrenia. Every experiment he completed on the topic produced important results that affected the way schizophrenia is thought about, and each result itself brought about new questions that illuminate this poorly understood topic. With an accomplished history of modeling and investigating the disabling cognitive deficits that are reminiscent of schizophrenia in laboratory animals, [client] has succeeded in establishing and distinguishing himself as a vital component of his field.”

The entire adjudication process took 6 months and 5 days, but we are pleased that our client finally obtained NIW approval. We congratulate him and look forward to helping him with the final step of the green card process (filing an I-485 application) when his EB2 priority date becomes current. We also encourage our client to file EB1A after his credentials improved, since EB1A approval can allow him to file I-485 without having to wait years for his EB2 priority date to become current.
