Success Stories: With Our Help, a Research Associate from Turkey Secured NIW Approval in Less than 6 Months and Now Awaits I-485 Decision

Client’s Testimonial:

“I liked working with the NAmILG. They are prompt, have a ton of experience, and have been very helpful in navigating the EB2-NIW petition. It definitely was a lifesaver to have them pay attention to all the details I would not have known to look for.”

On March 31st, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research Associate in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: Turkey

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: March 31st, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 20 days

Case Summary:

The USCIS spent 5 months and 20 days reviewing our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition before granting their approval. Our client, a research associate from Turkey, hired North America Immigration Law Group ( because she knew that we would do everything we could to present a strong case to the USCIS on her behalf. As is apparent by the approval notice, we lived up to her expectations.

Persuasive Presentation:

With a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering and extensive electrical engineering experience, our client had suitable qualifications to qualify for the national interest waiver. Furthermore, her professional qualifications strengthened the likelihood of getting her petition approved. Here are some of the things we detailed in her EB-2 NIW petition packet: her peer review experience (numerous reviews for 20 scientific journals), her citation count (111 citations at the time of filing), and her publication record (8 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles). We also demonstrated our client’s research on the design and development of circuits and systems that enable high-throughput full-duplex wireless communications. Her research in her area is of great importance because of its value to MRI technology.

Strong Support:

Our client’s high standing in the field secured her numerous supporters, many of whom are her peers. We urged her to reach out to these experts in the field and request for several recommendation letters. Four experts agreed to endorse the approval of her EB-2 NIW petition by signing testimonials. Here is what one of these experts had to say about our client and her work:

“The exceedingly high prices for spectrum usage in America substantiate the notable value that [client’s] research offers to the United States, its wireless consumers and the companies that provide a platform for wireless data storage and internet use. With this in mind, it is clear that her scientific skillset and her aptitude in electrical engineering is of vital use to the United States.”

Status Adjustment for Permanent Residence:

Around the same time our client filed her EB-2 NIW petition approval, we filed an I-485 application on her behalf. This is the last step in the green card process and an approval leads to American permanent residence. We congratulate our client for her NIW approval and thank her for choosing our law firm to be a part of her success story.
