General Field: Civil Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Engineer II

Country of Origin: Bangladesh

Processing Time: 9 months, 18 days

Case Summary:

An engineer III from Bangladesh hired North America Immigration Law Group for filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf and to get him closer to achieving the green card. When he approached us, we guided him through the process of obtaining a green card. Basically, there are two steps involved i.e., filing an I-140 petition and I-485 application.

Since we have first-hand information on how USCIS adjudicates the I-140 petitions, our client was certain that we would walk miles for this NIW case to be successful, however, he retained our services to help him with both I-140 and I-485 applications.

Initially, our client wanted us to file his NIW case, and after 4 months we went on filing his I-485 case as well. Miraculously, our client received his I-485 approval and just after 2 months received the NIW approval.

To make his cases successful, we thoroughly evaluated his academic and professional background to influence USCIS on the broad implications his research holds for the United States. Considering the focus of his research, his expertise and skill-set are in high demand in the U.S. He has provided crucial insights into the impacts of urbanization and climate change on stormwater runoff and water quality. To protect hundreds of thousands of Americans from flooding, it is imperative that the U.S. retains and invests in experts like him. Thus, we judiciously put the following details in his petition packet:

  • We noted that held a Ph.D. in civil engineering, along with his diploma, and transcripts, and employment letter confirming his current position, proving him as a qualified member of the professions holding an advanced degree. Also, based on his education, experience, expertise, he had completed over 10 peer reviews to date. Since only the most remarkable researchers in the field are invited to judge the work of their peers, especially in authoritative journals, it is apparent that he is seen as very competent in the field.
  • Besides, we specified the 38 citations he amassed from the 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles in journals and conference proceedings (9 of them first-authored) he published in no fewer than 1 highly ranked peer-reviewed journal. Also, the selection of his research for publication in the highly acclaimed journals, therefore, affirms that the quality of his research has set him apart from his peers. And, upon reviewing his citation record, proves that he has had a major influence on other scholars’ understanding of topics related to the civil engineering field.
  • Moreover, the funding support he received from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), thereby demonstrating that this funding is reserved for research advancing the national interest, including national interests in research and education in science and engineering, so the selection of our client’s work underscores its importance in these areas.

Acknowledging the aforementioned testimony, and the funding of his work by prestigious U.S. federal agencies, we were confident that he deserved the national interest waiver to advance his proposed research into large-scale system simulation for continuous data applied to water resources management, water systems structure performance, and other areas. To prove the great importance his research holds, we also added five recommendation letters acquired by our client. He obtained these letters from other leading and noble researchers in the field, corroborating that his work provides cutting-edge models and tools to ensure optimal water resource management around the world and is relevant to the proper management of stormwater runoff and the optimal allocation and management of water resources.

We are elated that despite a long wait, we were able to persuade USCIS of how our client’s research is critically important to the U.S., especially to the cities and states that are prone to flooding. We sincerely congratulate him on achieving the NIW and I-485 approvals and wish him well as he continues with his outstanding project here in the U.S.
