Case Summary:

It took North America Immigration Law Group ( several months to put together a strong EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition dossier for our client before we were ready to file it. In preparing our client’s EB-1A petition, we made sure to draw attention to the following details:

  • Impressive Citation Count: Using Google Scholar and other relevant websites such as Scopus, we determined that our client’s work had gathered 264 citations at the time of filing.
  • Noteworthy Publication Record: Our client’s extensive experience in the field of mechatronic engineering was emphasized by his specialized research on soft robotics. When we filed his EB-1A petition, his work had resulted in the publication of 30 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles, 4 Chinese patents, and 1 book chapter.
  • Outstanding Peer Review Experience: As only leaders in their respective fields are invited to assess the work of their peers, our client’s experience reviewing 60 articles/manuscripts for high impact scientific journals indicated his high standing in the field.

Accompanying the aforementioned documentation of our client’s professional performance were recommendation letters signed by other experts working in the field of mechatronic engineering. These experts were suitable recommenders as they had either worked with our client or were very familiar with his research results. These experts discussed everything from our client’s Ph.D. in mechanical engineering to the value of his research to the United States. Here is what one of them said about our client:

“[Client’s] work focuses on the development of bioinspired soft robots that are highly effective and can move in ways and access areas that traditional robots cannot. In order to maintain the United States status as a leading producer and user of robots, [client’s] research must continue unfettered.”

Although we presented a strong case to the USCIS, our client’s petition was issued a Request For Evidence (RFE). With our experience of securing over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we put together a solid response which eventually led to the case approval after 13 months and 19 days.

We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval, and we wish him the best. We sincerely hope that he accomplishes his goal of obtaining permanent residence and that he will be allowed to continue progressing the field of mechatronic engineering in the United States.
