Case Summary:

A research scientist approached North America Immigration Law Group for filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on her behalf, and we made sure of all the necessary documents to prepare a solid case for her. Before proceeding, we noted her successes in the field of analytical chemistry as our priority was to emphasize her accomplishments to the USCIS and to confirm that she deserved the national interest waiver. With our experience in obtaining over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we are well aware of the new trends followed by USCIS in adjudicating the cases. Accordingly, we included the following details in her NIW petition packet, using our unique strategies:

  • We detailed our client’s research work focused on utilizing chemometric methods to analyze multivariate data sets to resolve forensic and food chemistry issues. After a thorough review, we deduced that her research is of great importance because it improves criminal investigations and food safety in the United States.
  • Our client’s exceptional publications acquired 226 citations, thereby expressing a great impact of the research work on her peers. Her publications included 13 peer-reviewed journal articles (5 of them first-authored). These papers have been published in no fewer than 5 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. We also noted that she had reviewed her peer’s work 18 times for highly acclaimed journals, corroborating her stand as a highly esteemed researcher in the field.
  • We detailed how her research has also been supported with funding from the United States National Institute of Justice, and the preceding publication, citations, peer-review experience along with this funding support confirm her sustained leadership on important topics within analytical chemistry research.

To validate our client’s provided testimonies further, we asked her to reach out to other experts in the field for recommendations, and successfully, she managed to obtain four letters of support. It was imperative for us to add her fellow experts’ provided insight into the merit of her research, and as a professor in the field of analytical chemistry stated:

“[Client’s] work has greatly improved multivariate curve resolution, one of the most important chemometric methods for industrial applications. Her contributions are therefore highly beneficial for the American industries that rely on chemometric methods. As such, her research is of great value to the United States.”

Thus, after a victorious submission of our client’s case to the USCIS, we are glad that our client received her NIW approval within 7 months without any further request for evidence from USCIS. Assuredly, our client’s commitment to her work confirms that she is an invaluable asset to the United States. We thank our client for associating with us and congratulate her on this great new journey.
