Case Summary:

Sometimes, I-140 petitions are filed for strategic reasons. Even in those cases, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates still commit to providing the best petitions to make sure the case has a high chance of approval.

This client approached us a while ago with the fee revaluation request. At that time, the client did not have any publication or citation so we suggested the client to wait for more credentials. After a couple of months, the client approached us again, indicating that his H1B cap of 6 years was approaching and he needed to have an I-140 approval/pending for 365 to extend his H1B. Even at this time, the client still did not have any citations but two publications. So we at Chen Immigration Law worked directly with the client to procure the best possible evidence in order to establish support for his case approval. 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 an M.B.B.S, and an ECFMG certification, we highlighted these accomplishments and dedication towards scholarly pursuits. Additionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates noted the published works associated with this client’s research. Specifically, we highlighted the number of peer-reviewed scientific articles this petitioner had written (7), and the exceptionally high impact these works have had on the scientific community gathering an impact factor of 53.298 and 5.430 in the New England Journal of Medicine and American Journal of Medicine respectively.

Secondly, we gathered evidence to support the proposed benefit of this client’s work and its overall national benefits. Dedicating time towards gathering support for the specific contributions this client has made to their field of endeavor, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates worked diligently with the client to illustrate their research’s influence on the international medical community. As with other medical research cases, sometimes these clients lack a sufficient amount of citations due to the amount of time doing clinical work. If a client showcases exceptional merit in their practical and clinical work, as in this case, we highlight these accomplishments as to make the case’s approval irrefutable.

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. In a similar manner to that of the second stage, we utilized evidence of this client’s exceptional research and clinical work to guarantee a successful case.

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 4th 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!
