Success Stories: NIW Approved for a Researcher in the Field of Analytical Chemistry in 6 Months With 13 Citations


Client’s Testimonial:

“As a postdoctoral researcher coming from the middle east I had absolutely no idea how I can proceed with my papers to get a green card. I had my master’s from Jordan and then my PhD from Germany, I worked on great projects in both countries and I was able to get important – not so many- publications and citations. I heard about North Immigration law from a friend who recently got his green card through them and he strongly recommended them to me. Upon contacting NIW I got their fast response and upon reviewing my case our journey started. They have very organized and detailed guide packages available to their clients and when it comes to processing the papers, they are very organized, highly details oriented, they respond very fast and provide the best version they can for their client to finalize a strong case. They worked with me even during COVID-19 when everything was almost closed, and they insisted on providing best work quality. Working smart and hard, being aware of law and regulations, having wide experience, following all updates with USCIS and providing the right advice for their clients, I strongly recommend cooperation with North immigration law team.”

On February 26th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Researcher in the Field of Analytical Chemistry (Approval Notice).

Case Summary:

The USCIS spent 6 months and 4 days reviewing our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition before granting their approval. Our client, a researcher from Jordan, hired North America Immigration Law Group ( because she knew that we would do everything we could to present a strong case to the USCIS on her behalf. As is apparent by the approval notice, we lived up to her expectations.

Persuasive Presentation:

With a Ph.D. in analytical and environmental chemistry and extensive experience in the same field, our client had suitable qualifications to qualify for the national interest waiver. Furthermore, her professional qualifications strengthened the likelihood of her getting the petition approved. Here are some of the things we detailed in her EB-2 NIW petition packet: her peer review experience, her citation count (13 citations at the time of filing), and her publication record (4 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored). We also noted the importance of her research on developing proteomics quantitative methods for determining peptides and proteins in biological samples for diagnosing and targeting Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia.

Strong Support:

Our client’s high standing in the field secured her numerous supporters, many of whom are her peers. We urged her to reach out to these experts in the field and request for several recommendation letters. Five experts agreed to endorse the approval of her EB-2 NIW petition by signing testimonials. Here is what one of these experts had to say about our client and her work: “[Client’s] work in this domain has proposed new methods of treating pathogens using natural essential oils in place of toxic chemical pesticides. In this way, her research has made a novel contribution to analytical chemistry, as she has utilized emulsified essential oils to safely and effectively treat plant pathogenesis.”

This EB-2 NIW petition approval serves as another example of our law firm’s dedication to helping every client get closer to a green card. We thank our client for trusting us and choosing our law firm for her NIW and I-485 cases. We wish her the best as she continues to advance the field of analytical chemistry with her extensive research.
