Case Summary:

A database manager from South Korea, proficient in the field of educational psychology, contacted North America Immigration Law Group to help him document an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his part. We evaluated his academic background and professional work. His great experience in the field makes him deserving of the national interest waiver. We started building his case and included the following required details in his I-140 NIW petition:

1. We elaborated his proposed research focusing on the use of methodological and machine learning approaches to investigate interconnected issues related to healthcare, substance abuse, student wellbeing, and educational outcomes to provide accurate and robust statistical estimates and enable effective education and healthcare policy. His research is therefore of great importance because it addresses critical issues affecting education around the world.

2. We also detailed his important publication background and as evidence of his success, we added the 2 peer-reviewed journal articles and 2 published abstracts which altogether garnered 57 citations, showcasing his work being highly relied upon in the field of educational psychology.

3. Besides, we recorded that he has already conducted 7 reviews for the most distinctive journals. This notable peer-review activity proves our client’s exceptional expertise in this area.

4. After reviewing the provided testimonies, we felt the need of adding a few recommendation letters to bolster his case further. Accordingly, our client managed to provide us with five recommendation letters from fellow experts in the field to support his significant work, and one of them stated the following:

“[Client] brings a unique perspective to his studies. This strong background of experience and education make him a valuable asset to the United States as an educational psychology researcher moving forward.”

Our client was successfully granted the NIW approval after the USCIS adjudicated his work within 8 months and was granted his EB-2 approval. We are delighted to help our client throughout the process and thank him for choosing us. We would also like to congratulate him on this milestone.
