Success Story: NIW Approval for Client Working in Finance Field with Ph.D. in Physics

Client’s Testimonial:

Thank you! Fantastic news! I will call yu today to find out the next steps.

Many potential clients approached us; at Chen Immigration Law Associates, concerning their change in research topics or fields, and wonder if these changes will affect their chance of NIW approval. This success story will demonstrate how we successfully secured an NIW approval (without RFE) for a client who had changed his field from Physics to Finance and had only 10 citations at the time of filing. (Approval Notice)

Case Summary:

We at Chen Immigration Law Associates work with a variety of unique cases; often we encounter applicants with varied research experience, low citations, or severe time constrictions. For these special cases it is crucial that unique strategies are implemented in order to present the best possible chances for approval. It is important to note, even though a client’s research and previous citations may be in a field not directly associated with their current research, previous accomplishments and research can still be used to help establish evidence in both EB2 NIW and EB1 cases.

In this specific instance, a client native to Poland, had dramatically shifted his career focus from Physics to Finance and had only approximately 10 citations at the time of filing. As this client was an EB-2 NIW case, it was critical to present evidence that his work was an asset to the United States, and his permanent and continual residence was demanded of the national interest.

To start, we drafted a series of eight recommendation letters, four from independent referees in order to highlight the influence his work has had on the field of energy technology. After the reviews, edits, and signing of these letters by experts in the field, we researched applicable cases to highlight the qualifications established by this client. Following this, we detailed the importance this client’s work in regard to the national scope of energy technology; most importantly, how the varied skillset of the client has contributed to his current research. Specific to this case, we used these expert opinions to emphasize the importance attributed to this client’s varied skillset, and how it has offered the field of energy technology an irreplaceable asset. With the use of numerous techniques, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates helped link the client’s previous work and research to show how it has positively impacted his current developments in energy technology!

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, our team at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on July 25th, 2012.

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!
