Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved by Texas Service Center for Assistant Professor in New York in the Field of Computer Science

Client’s Testimonial:

“The services were excellent and very professional. Fast, accurate, and effective … other lawyers hesitated to file my case under this category but North America Immigration Law Group were confident and delivered what they promised… I cannot thank them enough  ”

On April 11th, 2016, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for an Assistant Professor in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).


General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: Jordan

Approval Notice Date: April 11th, 2016

Case Summary:

A well- known assistant professor from Jordan engaged the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group ( when he decided that he wanted to attain American permanent residence. He had heard of our stellar approval rates and wanted to give himself the best shot at getting a green card.

There are two steps in the green card process: the I-140 petition and the I-485 application. In this case, our client retained us for the former. As we filed our client’s I-140 under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver), we had to prove three main things: that our client’s work in the U.S. is in an area of substantial intrinsic merit, the benefits of his work are national in scope, and that obtaining the National Interest Waiver is in the country’s best interest. Here are some of the things that we included in his comprehensive I-140 petition packet that ultimately lent a hand in case approval:

  1. Professional Accomplishments: Our client’s extensive experience in the field has led to the publication of 31 conference and journal articles, 122 citations to his work, and 25 invitations to conduct peer reviews for scientific journals.
  2. Academic Achievements: Our client’s educational background is undoubtedly impressive. He has a Master of Science in Engineering, a Master of Science in Telecommunications, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Information Science. We demonstrated that he is fully capable of leading and partaking in research projects that will continue to benefit the United States.
  3. Research Outcome: Our client’s work is largely focused on understanding, detecting, and preventing cybersecurity threats in wireless ad hoc networks, as well as enhancing network security and performance in low-resource devices, such as wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and wireless body area networks (WBANs). We demonstrated that his work benefits the United States’ overall security by helping protect wireless networks and preserve sensitive information in multiple sectors, including the military, health care, the financial sector, and for individuals.
  4. Compelling Testimonials: We worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that not many other researchers in the field of computer science are capable of churning out such meritorious research results. However, we needed additional evidence to convince them of this fact, so we engaged the help of other experts in the field. Our client persuaded five influential computer scientists to support his EB-2 NIW petition by signing recommendation letters verifying that his work is important to other researchers as well as the nation. According to one of these recommenders: “As I can personally affirm, the widespread citation and use of [Client’s] research illustrates his prominence in the field and shows that his past and ongoing work on cyber security makes him an irreplaceable asset to the computer science community.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-2 NIW petition approval. We wish him the best with the final step of the green card process (filing an I-485 application), and we thank him for selecting our law firm to represent his petition.
