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.

Recently at Chen Immigration Law Associates we received a National Interest Waiver approval for a client from Romania. This client is a pathology research fellow focused on the faster, more-accurate diagnosis of tumors and the identification of novel pathogenic pathways to carcinogenesis. In order to ensure the success of this case, we submitted extensive documentation of the client’s highly significant contributions to the field of pathology. Our client’s work has resulted in at least 4 peer-reviewed scientific articles published in leading journals in the field, 10 scientific abstracts, and 16 national and international presentations. Additionally, her publications have been cited at least 5 times by researchers all around the world from prestigious institutions. Our firm drafted and submitted several recommendation letters from experts in our client’s shared field. One of the leading researchers in the field said the following concerning our client’s expertise, “I strongly recommend [the Petitioner] as a pathologist because her research has been of fundamental significance to better understanding cancer treatment and the improvement of America’s healthcare system.” With the strong petition letter and recommendation letters we prepared, our client’s NIW case was approved in less than two months without RFE.
