Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group – represented a Postdoctoral Associate from Zimbabwe in the field of Molecular Spectroscopy and Astrochemistry. His work has focused specifically on halogen bonded systems. In order for our client’s case to be successful, we submitted extensive documentation proving his highly significant contributions to Molecular Spectroscopy and Astrochemistry, including 5 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 published dissertation, and 9 presentations at national and international conferences. His publications had been cited at least 3 times by other peer-reviewed journal articles; all of these citations were by independent researchers around the world, demonstrating that these publications are recognized and relied upon in the field. He has also been invited to perform peer-review work for a journal in his field. As stated by one independent recommender, “[Client]‘s research concerning halogen-containing pollutants are important for reduction of pollution in both developed countries, like the United States, and even in the developing world. [Client]’s work has furthered our existing knowledge in this area and even brought to light previously unknown information, such as observations of three heretofore unobserved low-lying states of the halogen -containing intermediate NiBr. This discovery is important because it increases our knowledge of the formation of these pollutants. Understanding their formation enables the development of mechanisms that prevent the formation of pollutants in the first place, which is beneficial in all regions of the United States, as air quality affects everyone.” Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW petition was approved in 4 months and 10 days.
