Approval Notice Date: September 12th, 2019

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow hired North America Law Group ( to assist him with the first step in the green card process. After evaluating his extensive credentials, we determined that we could help him secure the national interest waiver.

To build a strong case, we carefully reviewed our client’s specialized research on cloud computing, fog computing, the Internet of things (IoT), natural language processing (NLP), and related topics by utilizing machine learning to optimize power consumption in cloud computing. At the time we filed his petition, our client has already built an impressive record of publication. In total, he has published 55 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles in prestigious journals. Moreover, his publications have been cited a total of 232 times, thereby demonstrating that these publications have also gone on to influence his peers and colleagues and are widely recognized in the field of computer science.

To further strengthen the petition, our client reached out to his peers and renowned researchers for their support in contributing recommendation letters. Below is an excerpt from one of the 6 recommendation letters included into our client’s personalized NIW petition, and it confirms that our client’s research is of great importance to the field: “[Client]’s research provides a more efficient way of keeping cloud computing up-to-date, making his study instrumental to the flow of information in modern society. For having produced such valuable findings, [client] has illustrated his position at the very top of the field.

Less than 7 months after we filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for him, the USCIS granted his approval. We are pleased that our hard work paid off. With almost 15,000 approved I-140 cases in the bag, the team at North America Immigration Law Group knew just what type of legal strategy to take in order to secure petition approval. We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant hurdle in the complicated green card process, and we thank him for retaining our I-485 services to help him adjust his status for permanent residence.
