Success Story: EB-2 NIW Approval for Mathematician Unemployed at the Time of Filing

On April 16th, 2012 we received another EB-2 NIW approval for a client who was originally from China, and unemployed at the time of filing (on J-2 visa). (Approval Notice)

General Field: Mathematics
Nationality: China
Position at the time of case filing: unemployed, on J-2 visa

Case Summary:

We at Chen Immigration Law Associates are constantly approached by clients who are unemployed but wish to file EB1-A (EB-1 EA) Alien of Extraordinary Ability or EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). These potential clients are hesitant about the categories because they do not have a job offer or an employer. The fact is, EB1-A (EB-1 EA) Alien of Extraordinary Ability or EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) are self petition categories focused on the beneficiaries’ past achievements and reasonable projection of future benefits. Foreign nationals without a job offer or employment can still have their cases approved.

For this specific case, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were presented with a client who had worked in the field of Mathematics. This client, although had made substantial contributions to the field of mathematics; specifically his work with positive solutions for singular boundary problems, was no longer employed by any organization.

Because of this unique situation, it was imperative that we investigate all manners where the client’s work had provided innovative contributions. With the assistance of this client, we helped procure six independent expert opinions in the field of Mathematics, to stress the importance of this client’s work in the field, and the value this work provided in reference to the national interest.

After our team at Chen Immigration Law Associates assisted in the drafting of six letters, we compiled this evidence substantiating the claims that this client’s work had made significant and extremely valuable contributions to the field of Mathematics, and that these contributions warranted the granting of permanent resident status in the United States.

Furthermore, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates compiled a list of applicable cases associated with this client’s case, in order to adequately establish previous precedence, which required the ruling in favor of our client.

Using these proven strategies, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, our team at Chen Immigration Law Associates was able to secure approval for this petition.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
