Case Summary:

To begin, it is important to note that EB-2 National Interest Waiver applications require several criteria to be met in order to gain approval. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates view each case independently to assess the client’s strengths and weaknesses in order to develop an individualized and unique strategy for each petition.

In this specific case, this client had both a strong publication and citation record; however, these aren’t the only criteria when filing a NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. It is additionally important to prove both that the client’s work is of substantial intrinsic merit and that the client’s work is vital for the United States’ advancements in a given industry.

Therefore, to evidence that this client’s work was of substantial intrinsic merit and influential with experts in the field, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted six letters of recommendation  that were reviewed, edited, and signed by the recommenders. Considering the USCIS puts more emphasis on letters from independent recommenders, we drafted 4 of the 6 letters for recommenders with no previous connection to our client.

In addition, in order to demonstrate the importance of this client’s work to the United States, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates focused on the broad scope of this client’s research. We cited expert testimony which identified his skillset as unparalleled, and emphasized that his research was applicable to multiple fields of endeavor. These fields included engineering, environmental sciences, and United States’ government, which continues to invest heavily in solar power.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on February 1, 2013.
