Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and extensive experience researching the field of optical engineering, our client (an optical engineer from China) seemed like a suitable candidate for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). Despite his impressive credentials, we carefully evaluated his qualifications before initiating the attorney-client contract. Once we confirmed that we could build a solid case for him, we worked diligently to gather as much relevant information as we could pertaining to his work in the field.

What did his EB-1A petition contain?

Our client’s comprehensive EB-1A petition was composed of various bits of information related to his research on optical systems. Not only did we prove that our client’s work is progressing the field as a whole, it also addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding new optical materials and their roles in energy efficiency. Furthermore, we documented the various outcomes of his work: the 148 times his work was cited, the 15 publications to his name, and the 21 times he was invited to judge the work of his peers.

To further fortify our client’s petition, we urged him to reach out to other experts working in the field and ask them for recommendation letters. To our delight, our client convinced six of his peers to lend their support, one of whom stated that: “[Client] is an outstanding researcher who has made significant contributions to the field of optics. As scientific research on this topic is becoming more competitive and demanding, we need to retain such a talent in this country. I fully support his immigration petition as it fits this country’s need.”

Rapid timeline:

As our client opted to file his EB-1A petition under Premium Processing (PP), he received notification of case approval just 10 days later—in general, it takes the USCIS an average of 4-9 months to adjudicate I-140 petitions. We join him as he celebrates this joyous occasion and we wish him the best as he files I-485 applications for himself and his spouse to adjust their status for permanent residence.
