Case Summary:

A research assistant professor from China hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. As EB1A is one of the hardest I-140 categories to secure approval, we knew that we had to be very convincing in our presentation to the USCIS. With a success rate of over 10,000 approved I-140 cases, we knew just what we had to do to get our client closer to a green card. In preparing our client’s EB1A petition, we took into consideration USCIS adjudication trends at the time as well as our client’s background, field of expertise, and various achievements in the field of materials science and engineering.

Our client not only has a doctorate in materials science and engineering, she also boasts extensive experience conducting impactful research in the same field. Her work has led to the publication of 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 book chapter, and 1 patent application, which have collectively been cited 611 times. Further, our client has assessed the work of her peers 16 times, demonstrating her respected status in the field.

As part of our services, we also carefully reviewed and detailed our client’s research on the development of functional polymeric materials and understanding the underlying molecular-level mechanisms governing their behaviors. Based on what we learned, we concluded that her research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in corrosion inhibition, as well as extending the lifetime and reducing the repair costs of polymeric components and structures. We also incorporated four recommendation letters into her EB1A petition dossier, one of which contained this statement: “Her valuable research on self-healing polymers demonstrates her as a fundamental presence in the field of materials science.” Another recommender stated: “The US cannot afford to lose a scientist of [Client’s] caliber, especially considering the immediate value of her work to US interests across the board.”

Because our client chose to file her case under Premium Processing, the adjudication timeline amounted to merely 10 days. We congratulate her for coming this far in the green card process, and we wish her the best as she continues her groundbreaking work here in the US.
