Success Story: EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for Postdoc Researcher in ONLY 29 Days

Client’s Testimonial:

Wow, thanks Atty. Chen! That was really fast! I wasn’t expecting it to be this soon! I already submitted my I-485 (I placed concurrent filing in the application) last Jan. 25. I have the biometrics scheduled on Friday next week. If I have some questions about it, I will also contact you. I will definitely recommend your firm to my colleagues. I actually already referred two of my friends to your firm. Thank you very much and it’s a pleasure to work with you!

On February 9th, 2013, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoc Researcher in the field of Chemistry. (Approval Notice)

General Field: Chemistry
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher
National Origin: Philippines
Service Center: Texas
Processing Time: 29 days

Case Summary:

We at Chen Immigration Law Associates strive for excellence in our work. We not only do we maintain approval ratings close to 100%, but we also continue to surpass the norm for case processing time. This case was no exception, and was approved in 29 days, which is approximately a quarter of the typical EB-2 NIW processing time.

We at Chen Immigration Law Associates make sure to work directly with our clients every step of the way to both ensure case approvals and also assure client satisfaction. In this case, we procured evidence that would aid the client in achieving a swift approval. We did this in three steps. First, we worked towards proving that this client was seeking employment in an area of substantial intrinsic merit. As this client had achieved several advanced degrees; specifically a PH.D. in Chemistry, we emphasized these substantial accomplishments. In addition to this client’s academic accomplishments we highlighted the multitude of cited (107) and published (18) works.

Secondly, we gathered evidence to support the proposed benefit of this client’s work and its overall national benefits. Using our effective case processing methodology we worked with the client and used our research technology to procure evidence and recommendation letters that would ensure a case approval. For this specific case, we utilized both our client’s active applications for patent approval and active research in tandem to highlight the traits that our desired by the national interest.

Finally, we proved that the national interest would be adversely affected if a labor certification were required. As this is arguably the most daunting task associated with filing EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions, it is important that each case establishes evidence directly corresponding to their claimed criteria. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates believe in gathering evidence in such a manner that each criterion is so well supported that the adverse effects associated with an unfavorable ruling are insurmountable.

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 9th 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!
