Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( had the pleasure of working with a gifted pre-doctoral research fellow immersed in the field of epidemiology. She hired us to help her get one step closer to a green card. After evaluating her credentials, we concluded that the best way to do so would be via EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver).

EB-2 NIW Petition Dossier:

Our job was to compile a wealth of information on our client’s various accomplishments and turn what we had into a convincing EB-2 NIW presentation. We noted everything from our client’s MPH to her current research on improving the health and biomedical outcomes of women. We summarized everything we learned and demonstrated to the USCIS that not many other researchers with similar skill sets can attain the same level of research success. We also proved that our client’s work is important to the United States because it provides crucial insights into medical interventions that serve to reduce rates of maternal mortality. To pad our NIW petition packet, we included additional evidence that illustrated our client’s high standing in her field: the 17 citations to her 2 publications, and recommendation letters furnished by other experts in the field, all of which firmly demonstrated that our client’s opinions and insights considerably progress the work of other scientists. Here are several quotes that we excerpted from three of the five recommendation letters that our client obtained:

  • “With regard to maternal mortality, the death of women during pregnancy and childbirth is a serious global concern because of its harm to families, the society at large, and the economy. [Client] has extensively studied both of these topics, thereby informing evidence-based health policies and programs to minimize the threats posed by STDs and maternal mortality.”
  • “[Client’s] findings on ways to reduce maternal mortality are essential to guiding the United States to develop similar country specific strategies needed to reduce its maternal mortality rates. Her contributions are a key to maternal care. Needless to say, her work ought to continue unabated.”
  • “Undoubtedly, she is an asset to the research community in the US, and progress in HIV/AIDS research and women’s health depends on her continued work.”

Story of Success:

We are pleased that the Texas Service Center approved our client’s NIW petition (in 8 months and 13 days), and that we get to chalk it up as yet another encouraging example of our firm’s determination to help every client get closer to permanent residency. We congratulate our client for this success and thank her for choosing us to represent I-485 applications for her and her family.
