Case Summary:

A research assistant from China approached North America Immigration Law Group ( when she decided that she wanted to get her green card. After carefully evaluating her credentials, we determined that we could help her build a solid EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case.

Putting together a strong EB1A petition:

Our goal was to convince the USCIS that our client is an asset to the United States and that she is an extraordinary researcher. Thanks to our many years of experience helping thousands of clients attain I-140 petition approval, we knew just what to include in this research assistant’s customized EB1A petition dossier. For instance, we noted the impressive 8,058 times her 15 publications were cited.  We also listed the time she reviewed a manuscript for a well-known scientific publication. Further, we included recommendation letters signed by other prominent physicists. According to one of them, our client’s work has “garnered major acclaim from the scientific community, evincing her as a leading researcher in the field of physics.”

Besides putting together a unique EB1A petition for our client, we also provided her with comprehensive advice surrounding her case. We worked diligently to offer our client the best legal advice, and work on a personalized strategy to help her attain EB1A approval.

After months of working on a unique EB1A petition for our client, we filed it using Premium Processing. Just 11 days later, our client received notification of case approval. As we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s research on quantum optics addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding black holes and gravitational waves, our client is now one step away from green card success. We wish her the best with this step and thank her for choosing us to represent her EB1A petition.
