Case Summary:

Nearly 10 months and 10 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for an Iranian researcher, the USCIS granted his approval. After evaluating his credentials and extensive experience specializing in educational psychology, we were confident that our client met the National Interest Waiver requirements set by Matter of DHANASAR.

As we have successfully petitioned over 16,000 I-140 cases, we applied our experience to our client’s case and highlighted his work on the biological mechanisms of cognition and learning. Relevant evidence was submitted to demonstrate that our client’s research has immense social and economic benefits. Besides, his many years of experience in the field of educational psychology has led to 4 publications, the 42 times his works were cited by other researchers, and the 4 times our client judged the work of his peers-these impressive records were also included in the petition package.

To further strengthen our client’s NIW petition, we included strong letters of support from other prominent researchers in the field. This is what one of the fellow experts in the field noted in his letter of support: “Therefore, it is crucial that educators encourage an active and proactive participation in the learning process, as well as instill critical thinking skills in their students. [Client’s] research identifies and addresses the challenges in current educational practice in order to produce a generation of students who are well-prepared and possess in-depth and discerning learning capabilities.”

With our unique methods to customize our client’s petition, we were able to include necessary documentary evidence and expert testimonies and successfully argue that our client would greatly benefit the development of his field, as well as the United States at large. We congratulate him with the I-140 approval, and thank him for choosing us for his I-485 application.
