Case Summary:

Just 6 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a postdoctoral fellow based in Massachusetts, the USCIS sent us notification of case approval. She opted for Premium Processing and cut down the overall wait time from 4-9 months to less than a week. Although our client had very strong credentials, she needed our help to refine her presentation and present a convincing case to the USCIS.

We worked diligently and by the time we were ready to file our client’s EB1A case, we had gathered plenty of information pertaining to her work in the field of physiology. For instance, we listed the 28 times she judged the work of her peers, the two dozen publications in her name, and the 271 times her work had been cited. We also included additional information such as her Ph.D. in Pathology and Reproductive Biology and evidence of her current employment.

One of the most important elements of our client’s EB1A petition had to do with the recommendation letters contributed by other professionals working in the field of physiology. These experts provided subjective evidence that our client is an asset to the US and that her work on reproductive biology and pathology addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding issues relating to pregnancy and birth. As an example, this is what one of our client’s recommenders noted in his recommendation letter: “[Client] is without doubt one of the most talented reproductive biologists working in the field today, and she has been responsible for some of the field’s most significant discoveries in recent years.

We are pleased that our hard work paid off and that our client secured EB1A petition approval. Not long after our client’s I-140 was approved, we filed I-485 applications for her and her dependent. We join them as they wait for the USCIS to take action on their petitions, and we wish our client the best as she continues to progress the field of physiology.
