Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved (despite RFE) for Researcher in Indiana in the Field of Computer Science


Client’s Testimonial:

“I would like to take this moment to thank you for your time and effort that you have devoted to my case. I am extremely grateful. You were very professional in your preparation and I could have not found better representation. I would surely recommend you to my friends.”

On April 19th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Researcher in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: United Kingdom

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Indiana

Approval Notice Date: April 19th, 2017

Processing Time: 15 months

Case Summary:

Despite waiting 15 months, a researcher based in Indiana finally secured EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. The reason why it took longer than the expected 4-9 months is because the petition was issued a Request for Evidence (RFE). As part of our comprehensive services, we efficiently responded to the RFE and cleared any doubts regarding his credentials.

Securing the national interest waiver:

The NIW petition we prepared for our client contained carefully worded summaries of his research on information security and privacy in online environments for individuals, government and intelligence agencies, and the broader technology sector. We also noted his notable citation record, which at the time of filing, stood at 77 citations. Additionally, we incorporated an account of his 7 peer-reviewed conference and journal articles, 1 book chapter, and 1 technical report.

All of this was supplemented by five recommendation letters contributed by other expert computer scientists, one of whom wrote, “This letter is to serve as a professional endorsement of [Client’s] extended research presence in the United States. While we do not know one another, I have been thoroughly impressed by his groundbreaking studies and feel confident proclaiming him a leader in information security and privacy protection.”

Overall, the NIW petition packet and RFE response our legal team put together contained convincing evidence of the benefits of our client’s research to the United States. The approval of this petition is yet another example of North America Immigration Law Group’s excellent record of helping our clients secure I-140 approval. We would like to thank our client for not only selecting us to represent his NIW case, but also his I-485 application.
