Success Stories: 10 Days after Filing, EB-1A Petition Approved for Scientist-Technical Advisor in Texas in the Field of Mathematical Modeling

Client’s Testimonial:

“It has been incredible working with you all along. I see that my case status is updated in USCIS as ‘approved’. I thank the entire team Chen attorney for the diligent support you have extended to me right from case examination (pre-contract) till filing of my case and beyond.”

On April 8th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Scientist-Technical Advisor in the Field of Mathematical Modeling (Approval Notice).

General Field: Mathematical Modeling

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist-Technical Advisor

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: April 8th, 2017

Processing Time: 10 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Merely 10 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a scientist from India, the USCIS granted their approval. The reason our client did not have to wait between 4-9 months for action to be taken on her petition is because she expedited the process by filing her case under Premium Processing (PP). PP is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows action to be taken on petitions within 15 calendar days.

Building a strong EB1A case:

Our team worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that our client is an extraordinary researcher in the field of mathematical modeling. We gathered a wealth of information that backed up our argument, and these are several of the key points we presented to them:

  1. We listed the 6 times our client assessed the work of her peers for a handful of prominent scientific journals.
  2. Using Google Scholar, we were able to confirm that our client’s work had been cited 413 times at the time of filing.
  3. We presented the significance of our client’s 25 peer-reviewed journal articles, 6 conference articles, and 1 book chapter to the USCIS.
  4. We also included additional evidence such as our client’s Ph.D. in Atomic Physics as well as information on her specialized research on developing novel mathematical and computational models for understanding atomic systems, molecular systems, and energy production.
  5. The four recommendation letters which our client obtained from her peers were incorporated into the EB1A petition packet. These letters discussed the importance of our client’s work to the US particularly when it comes to issues in understanding atoms, molecules, and energy exploration and production. This is what one of the recommenders said about our client: “[Client’s] record of sustained success in mathematical modeling, as described above, indicates to me that she is operating at the highest level of excellence in her field. She holds a long-standing record of achievement in mathematical modeling, which more than justifies the assumption that her work will continue to impress indefinitely.”

The approval of our client’s I-140 is a surefire sign of the effectiveness of our firm. We congratulate our client on her EB-1A petition approval and wish her all the best as she adjusts her status for permanent residence.
