Success Story: EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for Postdoc Researcher after RFE

Client’s testimonial:

[Chen Immigration Team] is very trustful and professional for my NIW and (ad)justment of status overall. They can make a best approach for you to fit the needs you have. They were also very responsible and kind when I had some questions need to ask. Furthermore, unlike other immigration offices in the states, with pretty reasonable price, they can guarantee your case if you are qualified, so I am very satisfied with their service, and I will absolutely recommend them for anyone who needs immigration-related advice or service. 

Recently, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates received another Approval for a EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) after RFE (Request for Evidence). (Approval Notice)

General Field: Endocrinology, Obesity, and Diabetes Research
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher
National Origin: China
Service Center: Texas
Processing Time: 42 Days

Case Summary:

It is important to denote that Chen Immigration Law Associates has an extremely high approval rating. In the year 2012, only one NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition we originally filed received a denial, (and we are currently appealing this decision). With this in consideration, this specific case was one of the rare few that received an RFE after its initial filing. In accordance with the organization, presentation, and citation of evidence, this case was completed with the utmost precision; however, the reviewing immigration officer believed that further evidence was required.

In order to meet these requirements, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates took special notice to what additional evidence was requested. As we had established significant evidence regarding the national scope of this client’s research and how the national interest would be adversely affected if a labor certification were required; we developed a strategy to reemphasize these important qualifications without restating the original information provided to the immigration officer.

Taking into consideration our previous strategy, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates highlighted this client’s achievement and qualifications as substantiated through his contributions to the specialized and imperative fields of endocrinology, obesity, and diabetes research. We drafted four additional recommendation letters to show the national interest of the client’s research, while highlighting specific contributions that the client made to the applicable fields.

In addition, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates referenced the impact factor of this client’s published works in reference to all other published works in associated fields. Considering this client had significant impact in numerous fields, we referenced both the client’s citations; associated impact factor, analytics gathered by top evaluation programs, and emphasized the proposed benefit of this research in the national scope.

Finally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates researched applicable case rulings and AAO (Administrative Appeals Office) decisions that ruled in favor of clients with less impressive credentials and/or contributions, and referenced these cases to further establish this client’s qualifications.

Using this unique developed strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work towards the national interest, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition just 42 days after its filing.

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!
