Case Summary:

An Assistant Professor, having obtained a Ph.D. in School Psychology, hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him obtain an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. Our law firm is well established for filing visa petitions precisely which assists our clients to achieve their ultimate goal; their green cards. Thus, before moving forward to prepare his NIW petition packet, we properly evaluated his credentials so that we could be certain of making him secure his NIW approval. We made sure to file a successful application in his category.

Here is the outline of his NIW petition packet, incorporating the following details:

  • We briefed his research focussing on developing strategies that support educators in implementing evidence-based behavioral interventions. Specifically, he will conduct research about implementation science and evidence-based practices in educational settings, consult with teachers and support their adoption of effective classroom management practices, and train school psychologists to disseminate evidence-based practices.
  • We showcased how his research has great substantial merit and national importance as among other applicants, his research is relevant to educators, school psychologists, and students who are working and learning in U.S. schools.
  • We focussed on his splendid publications, citations, and patent records:
    1. 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (one of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter.
    2. 29 times cited according to Google Scholar, serving as a testament to its high quality and relevance to ongoing research.
  • We even noticed that our client has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for elite journals in the field and has completed at least 22 reviews to date.

All the above factors, his consistent record of success, and his myriad professional accomplishments, therefore, made it clear that our client is seen as very knowledgeable in his field of expertise.

  • Moreover, to establish the fact that our client is at the front line in his field, we attached 4 recommendation letters provided by him obtained from other experts in the field. One of the recommenders had the following to say about him:

“The commonality of international students and the concordantly high value that they add to the American educational and economic systems, makes the research of [client] of great interest to the United States…Through his study, [client] determined that the presence of diverse international students as educators in the United States serves to accommodate the nation’s own increasing level of diversity among students.”

Lastly, his consistent patience throughout the process finally culminated with good news. Despite waiting for a longer duration, the USCIS eventually granted our client the I-140 NIW approval with our consistent encouragement. We are glad that our client found us, and we were able to lend him help to achieve the NIW approval. We sincerely thank our client for trusting our firm and wish him good luck in the future.
