We helped a client whose status would expire in about 15
days receive CIS approvals of EB2NIW in 1 month and 18
Post-doctoral researchers are often too busy to take
care of their own immigrant status until it was too
late. We recently did a metrical work to save a client
from going back to home country due to the expiration of
his J1 status.
One of our clients placed his energy entirely on his
research until his J1 status would expire for the
fifth-year in two months. His initial question to our
law firm was if it was possible that we file an EB2NIW
application in 60 days. We said yes.
After that, he continued his research in full force
until about 15 days before the expiration date of his J1
status. He asked the same question whether or not we
could file his case before the same expiration date.
This is certainly a major challenge because our law firm
will never rush in an EB2NIW application without
detailed preparation of our clients’ evidence.
Within the 15 days, our law firm had been working
overtime in late evening and weekends to make this
client’s EB2NIW well-prepared.
A well-prepared EB2NIW may get fast approval. His case
was approved by the Texas Service Center in only 1 month
and 18 days!
The following is a brief summary of this successful
This client is a postdoctoral research scholar
conducting research on the development of an advanced
method for wireless communications and bioinformatics at
a university in the U.S.
The client earned a Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer
Engineering in his home country. By the time of filing
his case, he has had 20 first-authored and co-authored
papers and 15 conference posters, along with more than
60 citations of his work. We argued that his research
and contributions will have a large impact on the
development of wireless sensor technologies that are of
important significance to national security and military
application. Particularly, we emphasized that the
client’s skills and background in signal processing and
its application, computational efficiency, wireless
communications/sensor networks are unique and
innovative, and serve the national interest.
In support of these assertions, we submitted 6 expert
opinion letters and well-prepared documentation of
publications, conference abstracts, citations, and
others, and the petition was then approved promptly.
That is, the client’s EB2NIW applications were field to
the CIS Texas Service Center on August 12, 2011. He
received the CIS approval notice for I-140 on September
30, 2011. The current processing time for EB2 NIW is
about 6 months according to the USCIS Processing Time
Information for Texas Service Center (TSC) posted on
October 18, 2011. The client’s NIW petition was approved
in only 1 month and 18 day after being filed on August
12, 2011, which is four months faster than the TSC’s
Current Processing Time. Again, such prompt adjudication
of the client’s petition has reflected the advantage of
a well-presented EB2NIW by our law firm.
With the expiration date of his status being just around
the corner, he had the entire documents ready on the
last day prior to the filing of his applications.
Fortunately, our efforts to be in constant contact with
our client during the process helped him to be more
careful not to omit any important documents by the last
day of preparation. To help the client with the
impending expiration of his legal J-1 status, all
members of our staff worked together to quickly send off
his applications in just two days with well-prepared
documentation. After all, our thorough professional
services and preparation helped a research scientist
receive his NIW approval in such a short period of time
