Case Summary:

An assistant professor from India approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) when she decided that she wanted to obtain a green card. After carefully going through her credentials, we determined that she qualified for EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers).

As EB1B is an employer-sponsored I-140 category, we had to make sure that our client’s employer—an American university—was willing to serve as the petitioner. Once we received their confirmation, we proceeded to collect an array of information related to our client’s research.

By the time we were ready to file our client’s personalized EB1B petition, we had gathered a wealth of information on her research projects and various accomplishments as a researcher. For instance, we listed the 135 times her 16 publications were cited, and the 50 times she assessed the work of her peers for various highly acclaimed journals. Our client had also collected five recommendation letters from other influential social workers. This is what one of them—a prominent professor—had to say: “When considering her research and her influence in this field, it is apparent that [Client] has reached a level of importance far beyond that of the average researcher.” Another recommender stated that our client’s research “is pursuant to the national interest of the United States.”

Overall, we successfully convinced the USCIS that our client’s research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how to help individuals respond to stressful life events or situations. Thanks to Premium Processing, the USCIS only spent 6 days adjudicating her petition. We congratulate our client for coming this far in the complex green card process, and we wish her the best as she continues to progress the important field of social work here in the US.
