On July 12th, 2013, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for an Assistant Professor in the field of Construction Management (Approval Notice)

General Field: Construction Management
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor
Country of Origin:  Iran
Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts
Approval Notice Date: July 12, 2013

Case Summary:

The average processing time for I-140 cases is 4-6 months. But on many occasions, we have cases approved far faster than the average processing time.

Another exceptional client that Chen Immigration Law Associates had the pleasure of working with was an Assistant Professor from Iran working in the field of construction management.   His work had focused primarily on improving the efficiency of transit construction projects via project delivery methods, risk assessment, probabilistic cost estimation, contingency determination, and avoidance of cost overrun. This client wished to continue employment in the field of construction management. We at Chen Immigration Law Associates demonstrated that his continued employment in the field would not only benefit those in his field, but the citizens of the United States at large. To achieve success in this case, we submitted extensive documentation proving our client’s highly significant contributions to the field of construction management, including at least 4 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in leading journals, 1 book, and 9 conference presentations. These publications had been cited at least 5 times at the time of case filing.  We submitted evidence that the field of construction has one of the lowest publication and citation rates of all research fields, and thus this is a notable number of citations. Of his accomplishments, one of the independent recommenders remarked: “… the construction industry in America is suffering from a lack of researchers with the training and innovation necessary to improve project management methods – a vital step in improving not only the final product, but also in ensuring that the largest number of projects can be completed without undue waste of time, manpower, or funds. Construction management is a field which accomplishes such research, and [client] has demonstrated a superior level of ability in this area.” Through extensive documentation, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates successfully argued that our client would serve the national interest to a significantly greater degree than others with similar education and experience. His NIW application was approved in just 7 weeks.
