Client’s Testimonial:

“The North America Immigration Law group has excellent skills to draft recommendation letters on behalf of the professors/scientists. Their drafted petition letter was outstanding and covered every component that is relevant to display my contribution to computation physical science. I strongly suggest using their help for the I-140 application.”

On April 28th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Computational Science (Approval Notice).

Case Summary:

Last year, North America Immigration Law Group ( was retained to help a postdoctoral research associate from India get one step closer to his green card. There are two steps in the green card process and we helped our client with the first one: filing an I-140 petition. Thanks to his strong credentials, our client was suitably qualified to file his I-140 under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. Just 6 days after we filed the case on his behalf, Nebraska Service Center sent us notification of case approval. Although the short processing time is largely thanks to Premium Processing, we have no doubt that our detailed presentation of our client’s various achievements lay the foundation for case approval.

What does our firm do to attain petition approval?

Attaining an EB-1A petition approval is not an easy task and petitioners must fulfill at least three out of 10 requirements. In this case, we established that our client had an impressive publication record that had gathered many citations and had judged the work of others on various occasions. When we filed the case, these figures stood at 14 publications, 258 citations and 12 peer reviews.

Our client’s petition packet was also composed of words of support from his peers. These took the form of detailed recommendation letters, one of which contained this statement: “[Client] has achieved a high degree of influence on the progress of energy science, in addition to the utilization of computational science in energy science. Moreover, [Client’s] other work has greatly influenced research throughout various other natural sciences as well.” This letter was contributed by a well-known professor immersed in the field of computational science and the four other recommendation letters that we sent to the USCIS were also volunteered by experts of similar caliber.

With an M.S. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Natural Science, there is no denying that our client can competently carry out effectual research that benefits the United States. For instance, his development of novel computational tools and simulations to enhance and elucidate natural science research advances the understanding of protein function, which facilitates medical research on protein-related diseases like cancer.

Because we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client is a force to be reckoned with and that his investigations are of great importance to the nation, they were persuaded to approve his EB-1A petition. Our client is now on his way to his green card with the help of our Do-It-Yourself I-485 Packet. Once the USCIS gives the go-ahead, our client will obtain his green card. We wish him the best with this and look forward to updates.
