Case Summary:

The typical I-140 case is approved in about 4 to 6 months, but some cases, such as this one, are approved in far less time than that.

This was another excellent applicant that North America Immigration Law Group – had the pleasure to work with. He was a postdoctoral researcher from Nepal working in the field of geology, and in his research, he focused on water-mineral interaction and the fates of elements in environment. Through documenting his contributions to the understanding mineral degradation in water pathways, the legal team at North America Immigration Law Group – was able to demonstrate that his continued employment in the United States benefited other researchers in his field and the citizens of the United States at large. To achieve success in this case, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to the field of geology, including at least 7 peer-reviewed publications. His publications had been cited at least 72 times at the time of case filing.   Of his impressive work, one independent recommender remarked: “Obviously, [the client] is an innovator in the scientific community. His insight and knowledge are what we need to retain in order for the United States to develop safely while keeping our citizens safe. I cannot stress enough the importance of his research to this nation.” Through extensive documentation, we at North America Immigration Law Group – successfully argued that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW application was approved in just 40 days.
