Success Stories: NIW Approval with Customized Petition Packet Drafted by Our Law Firm for a Senior Software Engineer, Despite RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“I would like to thank you for all your efforts in this journey.”

On March 24th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Software Engineer in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Software Engineer

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: March 24th, 2020

Processing Time: 9 months, 27 days

Case Summary:

A senior software engineer engaged the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him with the first step of the two-part green card process- filing an I-140 petition. After carefully evaluating our client’s credentials, we confirmed that he was a suitable candidate for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). As soon as our client signed and returned the contract to us, we got to work preparing a convincing EB-2 NIW presentation for him.

Establishing our client’s high standing in the field:

As with all our cases, we worked diligently to compile a wealth of information on our client’s accolades and accomplishments. For instance, we noted his Ph.D. in electrical engineering, the 317 citations to his work, and the 17 publications to his name. We also noted the 90 times our client reviewed the work of his peers. We established that not many other researchers can attain such effectual research results and that his findings on signals, systems, and control engineering is of great importance because it relates to the development of battery management systems (BMS). Such systems are in high demand in areas such as data centers and battery-driven public transport.

Gathering additional evidence:

To strengthen our client’s EB-2 NIW petition, we asked him to persuade his peers to help out. We needed them to sign recommendation letters that verified the importance of our client’s research not just to other researchers but to the nation as a whole. 4 experts agreed to advocate for the approval of our client’s EB-2 NIW petition, one of whom described his work as: “[Client’s] research on battery management systems, which are critical components of battery-powered devices and systems, such as laptops, mobile phones, and electric vehicles, is critical to the economic success of the U.S. These systems help guarantee the safety and efficiency of batteries for grid storage, and their failure leads to the loss of capital and the endangerment of human lives. Thus, it is evident that [client’s] work in the field carries a great deal of significance.”

Obtaining petition approval:

Although we presented a strong case to the USCIS, our client’s petition was issued a Request For Evidence (RFE). With our experience of securing over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we put together a solid response which eventually led to the case approval after 10 months. With the NIW approval in hand, our client is now one step closer to his green card. We join him as he celebrates his win and we wish him the very best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence with the help of our complimentary DIY I-485 Packet.
