Case Summary:

A little over 9 months after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for a postdoctoral fellow from South Korea, the USCIS approved her petition. Thanks to the personalized NIW petition we put together for our client, she is now significantly closer to her end goal of becoming a US permanent resident.

Customizing the NIW Petition Packet:

We have secured petition approval for over 10,000 clients specializing in different fields. Our many years of experience have given us firsthand knowledge of any changes the USCIS may make in adjudicating cases, which gives us the upper hand in advising our clients on the best timing to file their cases and so on. Additionally, we are well-known for effectively and efficiently building customized petitions for our clients based on their research background, achievements, and strengths.

In this case, we paid special attention to our client’s various accomplishments in the field of bioinformatics. For instance, we noted the 5,545 times her 4 published articles were cited. We also detailed her research on statistical modeling to discover novel genomic features and genetic data analysis to identify genetic variants associated with psychiatric disorders.

Based on all the information we gathered, we built a unique NIW case that shed light on the significance of our client’s work to the US, most notably when it comes to improving treatment and care for those suffering from psychiatric and genetic disease. We also included recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the bioinformatics research community. According to one of them: “[Client’s] research represents an enormous stride toward reducing that figure [treatment and other economic costs associated with schizophrenia], thereby benefiting the U.S. healthcare and economic sectors.”

We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant hurdle in the lengthy green card process, and we thank her for working with us.
