Case Summary:

A little over a year after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an I-140 EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for a scientist from Lithuania, the USCIS finally granted their approval. The reason it took so long for our client to attain petition approval is because her NIW was issued a Request for Evidence (RFE). However, our stellar team prepared a strong response to it, which ultimately led to case approval. Not only did we convince the USCIS that our client’s credentials were legitimate, we also reiterated that she is an asset to the United States.

Putting together a personalized NIW petition:

Our goal was to highlight our client’s strengths and skills and convince the USCIS that she deserved the national interest waiver. We did so by presenting an array of her accomplishments such as the 26 times her 6 published articles were cited. We also discussed her work on the application of protein biochemistry in the design, development, and production of proteins that have high capacities as therapeutic agents. Based on the comprehensive data that we gathered, we concluded that our client’s research directly contributes to the American medical and pharmaceutical industries, which makes her an asset to the country.

Besides preparing a customized NIW petition, we also gave our client comprehensive advice on a variety of issues related to the I-140. For instance, we helped her select suitable recommenders who could advocate for the approval of her petition. We urged our client to contact these recommenders and ask for letters of support. She returned with six signed letters, one of which contained this strong statement: “[Client] is especially well-qualified to advance the state of biochemical research, and is therefore a welcome addition to the American scientific research community.”

Thanks to our insight and experience into how the USCIS adjudicates petitions, we were able to help our client move one big step closer to US permanent residency. We congratulate her on this win and wish her the best as she adjusts her status for permanent residence.
