The average processing time for I-140 cases is four to six months. But on many occasions, we have had cases approved far faster than the average processing time.

At Chen Immigration Law Associates, we recently received an EB1B approval for a postdoctoral research associate in the field of mechanical engineering and materials science. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability and high level of skills background, impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for his EB1B petition. His work mainly focused on incorporating higher-order modifications to existing classical electromechanical theories in order to capture novel size-dependent effects which are observed at the scale of a few nanometers. Furthermore, the beneficiary had a total of 282 citations for his publications before filing the petition. The beneficiary’s outstanding expertise is summarized in a quote by a fellow researcher, “During [the beneficiary’s] PhD research, together we authored 10 journal publications and 1 book chapter cataloguing our work in the broad area of materials science and nanomechanics […] This seminal work was published in two prestigious journals, Physical Review Letters and the Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids, and has been cited close to 120 times in total – a remarkable achievement […] [the beneficiary] has carried out foundational work in this area and has been published in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the Royal Society A.” It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an Outstanding Professor or Researcher given the international recognition for his outstanding achievements.
