Case Summary:

Merely three days after North America Immigration Law Group filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a research staff member from China, we received an approval notice from Nebraska Service Center. Largely thanks to Premium Processing, our client’s petition was swiftly adjudicated. Even so, we are sure that our well-balanced presentation of our client’s impressive credentials lent a hand in case approval.

So what exactly did our comprehensive EB-1A petition contain? Here are some of its key features:

  1. Client’s Credentials: When we filed the case, our client’s 9 publications had collected 247 citations. We also listed the 14 times he contributed his insights to other computer scientists via peer reviews.
  2. Recommendation Letters: To support our argument that our client’s investigations are crucial to the United States, we asked him to gather recommendation letters from other experts in the field. The six letters that our client managed to obtain firmly noted their support for his EB-1A petition, one of which stated that “[Client] is an extraordinary researcher in the field of computer science. He has an established record as a leading researcher in his field, and a number of of [sic] his contributions have been or are being implemented in practical applications. His work is benefiting the U.S., and the continuation of his research is in the interest of the country.”
  3. Research Results: To prove to the USCIS that our client is an outstanding researcher in the field, we needed to carefully review and understand his research results in order to build a strong case. We noted his research projects on the improvement of the correctness, reliability, and security of various software systems and used what we learned to demonstrate to the USCIS that our client’s work advances the United States’ development of practical tools to improve the reliability of complex and large-scale software.

This EB-1A petition approval serves as yet another encouraging example of our law firm’s commitment to helping every client get closer to their green card. We congratulate our client and wish him well as he continues to progress the field of computer science.
