A postdoctoral research fellow engaged the legal services of North America Immigration Law Group (WeGreened.com) for help with her I-140 petition (first step in the green card process). After thoroughly going through her credentials, we verified that the best course of action to get a green card would be to file her I-140 petition under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). As soon as an attorney-client relationship arose, we immediately set out to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research is important to the United States and that not many other researchers can mirror her success.
Steps Leading Up to Petition Approval:
As strong as our client’s credentials were, and as skilled as our legal team was at putting together successful EB-2 NIW petitions, it did not change the fact that gaining petition approval was a challenging task. We started off by asking our client to gather recommendation letters from other researchers in her field. The handful of letters that she managed to obtain were strong and certainly served their purpose of proving to the USCIS that our client’s work positively impacts the nation. For instance, one of the letters stated that: “[Client’s] meaningful work on determining effective inhibitors of HIV and relevant antibodies that prevent replication is directly relevant to developing prevention of HIV, and the success of her previous work serves as a veritable guarantee that she will continue making substantial contributions to her field”
These recommendation letters were accompanied by summaries of our client’s portfolio: her citation count, publication record, and research projects. When we filed the case, our client’s work on determining the importance of various factors in host-pathogen interactions had amassed 252 citations, and she had published 15 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored, 1 of them co-first-authored). We used these accomplishments and other evidence that we had collected to firmly establish that our client’s investigations are essential to the United States. In addition, her work has consistently served to improve treatment and preventive measures for a variety of viral infections, including HIV-1, Zika virus, and the West Nile virus.
The USCIS spent 10 months and 14 days reviewing this NIW case before granting their approval. We are pleased at the outcome and would like to thank our client for placing her trust in us. We congratulate our client for overcoming this hurdle and wish her the best as she continues to advance the field of virology with her extensive research.
