“Wegreened attorneys delivered every deliverable on time! They have a very efficient and effective process. True professionals! I have recommended them to several friends.”

On May 18th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Associate Engineer in the Field of Chemical Engineering (Approval Notice).


General Field: Chemical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Engineer

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Oklahoma

Approval Notice Date: May 18th, 2017

Processing Time: 13 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

An associate engineer with a doctoral degree in chemical engineering received notification of EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval just 13 days after filing at Texas Service Center (TSC). This brief timeframe was largely possible because of Premium Processing (PP) but there is no doubt that the effort put forth by North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) played a role in petition approval. PP is a paid option offered by the USCIS whereby select petitioners willing to pay an additional $1,225 will have action taken on their cases within 15 days instead of 4-9 months.

Our team worked diligently to put together an effective EB1A dossier for our client. Our main focus was to highlight the significant achievements of her research career, some of which are listed below:

– We noted our client’s dedicated efforts focused on the development of cutting edge materials and processes that remove pollutants from air and water. Our client’s work guides the American research community on how to create effective materials for reducing air and water contamination. For a country that seeks novel solutions for wastewater treatment, our client’s innovative research immensely benefits the nation.

– Our client’s scholarly contributions were also presented in detail. At the time of filing, she had authored 11 peer-reviewed scientific articles which had garnered a total of 154 citations. This strengthened our argument that our client’s achievements have been widely recognized and relied upon in the field of chemical engineering.

– We also presented documents of our client’s experience as a peer reviewer. She had conducted a sizeable 50 reviews for several high impact journals and conferences. Moreover, she had served as the technical chair for an international conference. These achievements fortified our client’s case to a great extent and established the high standing and repute she enjoyed amongst her peers in the field of chemical engineering.

– As part of our successful legal strategy, recommendation letters from other experts in the field are often incorporated into petition packets. Our client successfully collected 6 such recommendation letters from other influential chemical engineers. According to a renowned expert: “…..her many other successful research projects have enabled [Client] to rise to the forefront of the chemical engineering field. Her status as a leading researcher in this competitive specialty necessitates her continued participation in chemical engineering.” Such statements served as testimonials to our client’s exceptional caliber in her chosen field.

We are elated that our client received EB1A approval quickly and we thank her for working with us. We have provided her with our D.I.Y Packet which serves as a guide for her to file an I-485 application, the approval of which will make her a permanent resident in the United States.
