Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate from China initially hired us to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, and after she received her NIW approval successfully back in 2020, she decided to retain our law firm for filing another petition under the I-140 EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. Since North America Immigration Law Group has a record of more than 25,000 approved cases, we were certain of our client’s research background and the upcoming success of her EB1A case. We listed the most important pointers in her petition packet:

Education Background & Research Brief: Our client is armed with a Ph.D. in wood chemistry and polymer science, and she has been researching for many years in the field of wood chemistry, focusing on the research and development of profitable biomass-derived polymeric materials. Her research is certainly essential for improved sustainable and alternative energy. Her strong background in chemistry has allowed her research to be specifically original, resulting in her success in woody biomass valorization research.

Citation Count, Publication & Peer-Review Experience: We specified the 276 times her work was cited from many other notable researchers in at least 36 countries. This further confirms that she has made substantial contributions with fundamental consequences in the field of wood chemistry, establishing herself as a person capable of noteworthy achievements in the practice of biomass biorefinery in America. Additionally, we discussed the 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 book chapter, and 2 patents she published in some of the most distinctive journals in the field, undoubtedly contributing to the progress in the field. Also, we noted that our client evaluated the work of her peers for remarkably acclaimed journals 19 times. As a result, her significant contributions in the field of wood chemistry are of intrinsic worth to the interests of the United States.

Recommendation Letter: To strengthen her petition packet further, we included 5 recommendation letters acquired by her from fellow experts stating how our client’s vast wealth of experience in the field has afforded her with a comprehensive skill set and level of ingenuity that only a small handful of researchers possess and has laid the foundation for her various scientific breakthroughs. Therefore, according to one of the recommenders:

“Between [client’s] much-needed expertise and the way her work has, had, and will continue to have, on the study of wood chemistry, I feel her continued presence is fundamentally important to modern science. Further evidence of this comes from her publication history, which supplies a virtual guarantee that her high-caliber research will continue to impact her field to a remarkable degree. Her work also has practical applications for improved polyurethanes, thereby justifying the extension of her research efforts in the United States.”

We are extremely happy that once more we were victorious in obtaining our client the EB1A approval without any further request for evidence (RFE). A special thanks to premium processing service, which is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to enjoy accelerated adjudication (the case will be processed within 15 days instead of 9-12 months). Thus, our client’s case was adjudicated in just 1 month. Sincerely, we would like to thank her for choosing our law firm for her I-140 petitions and achieving the approvals successfully.
