Case Summary:

A Swiss postdoctoral associate of ecology hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an NIW petition on her behalf. With a PhD in natural resource ecology, her specialized research on climate change and biosecurity is key to analyzing and controlling algae blooms in US water ecosystems as well as proposing effective tools for combating animal illnesses of the US hog industry. Our client is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with and we worked diligently to prove it to the USCIS. With our help, her NIW petition was approved in less than 7 months.

We listed the 10 peer-reviewed journal articles, 2 peer-reviewed conference papers and 3 peer-reviewed book chapters to her name, the 1,884 citations gathered from her work, and the 12 times she conducted peer reviews for several scientific periodicals. Besides these details, we also incorporated recommendation letters volunteered by some of the brightest minds in her field, all of whom firmly advocated for the approval of our client’s NIW petition. One of our client’s recommenders had this to say about her work: “[Client]’s research is important for its role in protecting the health of the environment. (…) [Client] has advanced the means of monitoring the health of the environment, strengthening scientific research throughout dependent fields. Taken into consideration with the translational value of her research, it is clear that [Client]’s work is of major importance to the field and that she is an irreplaceable presence in this important area of research”. Her outstanding achievements and broad scientific worth is indeed an invaluable asset for the research community of the United States.

As our client currently resides in the US, she will embark on the final leg of the green card journey by filing an I-485 application. We thank her for also retaining our firm’s I-485 services and look forward to assisting her in achieving green card success.
