Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for helping and guiding me through this ardent and difficult task.”

On January 5th, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Cardiology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cardiology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: India

Approval Notice Date: January 5th, 2018

Processing Time: 7 months, 13 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

An assistant professor with an M.D. approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) when he decided that he wanted to become a US permanent resident. With a record of over 10,000 approved I-140 cases, we knew just what to do to make sure our client got closer to his green card. For instance, we worked diligently to gather as much information as we could on our client’s work in the field of cardiology. We also carefully assessed his work and accounted for his findings on the cardiovascular effects of different components of the metabolic syndrome such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.

As part of our comprehensive services, we also helped our client select recommenders to strengthen his case. Our goal was to ensure that the USCIS was presented with subjective evidence proving that our client is an asset to the US. Once we had narrowed down several potential recommenders, our client reached out to them for recommendation letters. The six letters he obtained were incorporated into his customized EB1A petition dossier and contained statements such as this one: “Based on the work that [Client] has already completed, it is only reasonable to conclude that his future contributions will also be of great value to the field. He has distinguished himself as a highly knowledgeable expert to join an elite community of researchers.”

Alongside the aforementioned recommendation letters, we also included data on the 213 times our client’s 18 published articles were cited. We also noted the 40 times he had judged the work of his peers at the time of filing.

Overall, we convinced the USCIS that our client should be allowed to remain in the US to continue his research. Despite issuing a Request for Evidence (RFE), they eventually approved our client’s petition. We congratulate our client for securing a highly sought-after EB1A petition approval, and we thank him for retaining us to help him and his dependents file their I-485 applications. We guarantee our continued support and look forward to helping them become US permanent residents.
