Case Summary:

Once again, the team at North America Immigration Law Group ( proved its impressive abilities in spearheading I-140 immigration petitions. This time round, we helped a Pakistani postdoctoral research associate obtain an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. As the icing on the cake, we also helped her get her I-485 application approved, meaning she is now a proud American permanent resident.

Our client’s revolutionary ideas have propelled the field of molecular biophysics into the future. Her research initiatives have broadened our understanding of the role of cellular membrane proteins in human physiology and pathophysiology. In order to prove the significance of our client’s research to the USCIS, we emphasized the way she has been resolving challenges faced by the biomedical community in the US. Further, we outlined her impressive record of authorship which demonstrates her current accomplishments in the field. At the time of filing, she had already published 10 peer-reviewed journal articles. We also focused on the 510 times her work had been cited by other researchers.

To corroborate our client’s petition, we included recommendation letters from top researchers in her field. According to one of them: “Biophysics and related areas of science are indebted to [Client’s] major contributions to ion channel research because of the physiological and pathophysiological implications of such data on health and disease”.

Thanks to our prior experience and knack of handling I-140 immigration petitions, we were able to help our client reach the green card finish line. Exactly 8 months and 3 days after filing the petition, the USCIS granted their approval. We congratulate our client for obtaining her green card and we wish her the best as she embarks on new beginnings as a permanent resident.
