Success Story: Computer Engineer got NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approved in 3 months without RFE (Request for Evidence )

The case was filed on May 21st, 2012 so the processing time is shorter than the average processing time of 4 months. (Approval Notice)

Case Summary:

On October 18th, 2012, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates got another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver)approval notice for a client who worked in the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

It is important to note that this client had not published a significant amount of journals, nor had his research greatly influenced the fields of electrical and computer engineering to date. With this in consideration, our focus spoke predominantly to the work that was being pursued by client, and the importance this work possesses in regards to the future advancements of the field and their underlying significance to the nation. Although the degree of difficulty differs from client to client, in this case we found that heavy support from established professionals both nationally and internationally emphasized the unique skills presented by the client.

Instead of simply requesting that the client find friends and colleagues to write on his behalf, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates assisted with the drafting of eight letters from independent referees. With this strategy in consideration, we helped the client find support from areas not previously considered, appealing to great minds within the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering, to help support the importance of his continued residence in the United States.

In addition to assisting with the drafting of letters, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates outlined a detailed research in the petition letter and highlight the earned honors, accolades, and successes attributed to this clients work, while noting the work yet to be inspired by the clients unique and crucial research.

Specifically to this case, it is important to note that the client’s low number of first authored (about 3) articles and low citations (about 20) did not affect the outcome, nor did his wide variety of research interests within the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Instead of presenting a case from numerous perspectives, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates highlighted this client’s current work, and influences and successes of his previous endeavors. With this in mind, we spoke to both the demand for the client’s continual residence, and the nation’s perspective loss if this residence was not granted.

With our unique strategies and diligent work, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to construct a case tailored to this client’s position and provide significant evidence supporting the importance of his continued and permanent residency in the United States.
