Case Summary:

When filing a EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, it is required to document the status and expertise of each client. Traditionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates provide examples of advanced degrees and contributions to their field through various sources; however this particular client provided a unique set of challenges. Not only did they not have a Ph.D. at the time of filing, their citation count was relatively low. In order to create a substantial case for this client to continue her work in the field of child psychology, it was important to develop the best possible case for a swift approval.

To start, we highlighted this client’s extensive experience in the field of psychology to balance her lack of credentials. In order to do this, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted seven recommendation letters that were reviewed, edited, and signed by the recommenders. These letters provided significant testimony to the value, merit, and national scope associated with this client’s ongoing research.

Additionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates focused on this client’s unique combination of skills and diverse background in understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. With this in mind, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates utilized analytical software and our extensive expertise in research, in order to demonstrate both our client’s level of expertise and profound impact on their field of endeavor.

Finally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates cited relevant AAO (Administrative Appeals Office ) decisions to further document the evidence necessary to gain approval for this client’s NIW petition.

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 January 25, 2013.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
