Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in family studies and years of anticipating research, our client holds the aptitude to advance in the field of marriage and family therapy. She hired North America Immigration Law Group to construct an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition on her behalf. Without any delay, we proceeded to evaluate her credentials, and after assessing the same, we affirmed that we could lead her way to EB1B approval.

In our client’s EB1B petition, we added the following key points:

  • We remarked that her work was cited by other well-acknowledged researchers 87 times from 27 countries. This suggested the essence and the benefits of her work elicited enthusiastic responses from around the field.
  • We also noted the 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles, all of which appeared in prime journals, displaying her publications being well-recognized.
  • Further, we recorded the impressive 23 times our client assessed the work of her fellow peers, establishing her obligations as a peer reviewer.
  • We elaborated the most important factor in her petition i.e., her research focusing on developing and implementing psychological prevention programs for children and families. After a thoughtful investigation, we concluded that our client’s research addresses some of the world’s most pressing issues in understanding and improving the psychological well-being of children and families.
  • To corroborate that her work has been extensively appreciated by independent scholars and all of her recommenders are internationally renowned experts in the field, belonging to prestigious institutions, we incorporated five recommendation letters. One of her recommenders stated that:

“[Client’s] first-rate understanding of family engagement, combined with her proficiency in prevention programs, enables her to produce high-quality publications that continue to have an impact on the field. It is therefore apparent that her work presents a unique and valuable resource to marriage and family therapy.”

Our client successfully received her EB1B approval in 6 months and 17 days with our full cooperation and dedication towards her case. We would like to thank her for choosing our law firm for handling her case and we wish her very well in her future endeavors.
