Case Summary:

Holder of a Ph.D. in polymer science and engineering, a senior engineer based in Delaware engaged the expert services of our law firm ( to help her in filing an I-129 O1-A (Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement) petition back in 2019. After she achieved her O1-A approval, she decided to retain us to file another petition under the I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) visa category, and after a while, she also asked us to help her with one more petition documentation under I-140 EB1B (Outstanding Professors or Researchers). Many petitioners file more than one petition to increase their chances of getting the approvals quickly as well as move them closer to green card success. Since we were already well aware of our client’s area of study, research and achievements, articulating her EB1B case was smooth for us. Also, she upgraded her EB1B case to Premium Processing service, which is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to enjoy accelerated adjudication. Thus, her EB1B petition got approved in just 9 days after we filed the petition. After successfully securing two petition approvals, our client was eager and hopeful to obtain her NIW approval.

Thanks to our attorneys and associated team’s diligence and consistent follow-ups, we finally led our client to achieve her I-140 NIW approval.

Here is a brief description of what we added in our client’s customized petition packets:

Most importantly, we reviewed her research work of 7 years in the field of polymer science before filing for her respective cases. After a complete evaluation of her credit and merits, we were convinced of how her research on topics concerning soft material mechanics, including fracture and adhesion, as well as synthesis and characterization of new polymers, addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding polymer development, structure-property relationships, and soft material characterization. Also, to highlight our client’s recognition, we incorporated five recommendation letters that she accumulated from other internationally recognized researchers in the field. According to one of her recommenders:

“[Client’s] accomplishments in Polymer Science and Engineering so far make her an indispensable source of original research and innovations here in the United States. ”

Besides, we recorded our client’s prolific research work that influenced her peers and fellow experts. She amassed 97 citations from leading institutions not only from the United States but also from countries like China, Israel, South Africa, and Italy. This international interest in her work confirms its exceptional quality. We also noted the 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 first-authored and 1 co-first-authored) and 1 patent she published in high-impact and internationally circulated journals, establishing an impressive record of authorship in the field of polymer science. Going forward, we observed that she has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for top-tier journals, and she conducted 14 peer reviews, emphasizing her active and actual participation as a judge of the work of other experts in the field.

Furthermore, we specified her expertise and experience that have been recognized through her appointment to leadership positions within the field, demonstrating the execution of her duties and responsibilities reflects her vital role in the field of polymer science.

USCIS adjudicated our client’s cases thoroughly and thankfully granted the approvals. We genuinely thank our client for having faith in the North America Immigration Law Group with her I-129 and I-140 applications. We congratulate her for advancing on her chosen research path.
