Case Summary:

When our client got in touch with North America Immigration Law Group ( to build an EB1A case for him, we carefully evaluated his academic and professional achievements to determine if we could present a strong case to the USCIS. After confirming that we could, we put together a solid case that comprised of an array of information. This included data on our client’s 21 publications, the 143 times his work was cited, and the over 170 peer reviews that he had conducted for a variety of journals and conferences. Our client’s EB1A petition packet also contained 9 recommendation letters, all of which were signed by other expert computer scientists. For example, this is what one of our client’s recommenders noted in his letter of support: [Client]’s innovative approaches have been used in Air Force’s defensive counter space mission to provide high value space assets and secure the satellite communications (…) [Client]’s work therefore represents a significant advance in space services and technologies in particular, and the field of network security in general. He continues to guide that of other researchers in the discipline”. These letters and the evidence we submitted underpinned the importance of our client’s contributions to the nation.

We are pleased to note that our team has successfully petitioned over 10,000 I-140 cases. This has given us unprecedented insight into what the USCIS is looking for when adjudicating cases. It is likely that we have petitioned similar cases in the past and that we are well acquainted with USCIS trends.

We congratulate our client for securing EB1A approval in just 7 days and for coming this far in the green card process. We wish him the best as he continues to develop advanced techniques, algorithms, and systems for the monitoring, detection, and mitigation of cyber threats. We also thank him for choosing us to help him and his dependent adjust their status for permanent residence, and we look forward to helping them secure I-485 approval.
