Success Stories: Michigan-based Visiting Associate Professor in the Field of Electrical Engineering with Approved NIW is One Step Closer to his Green Card

Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for the hard work and professionalism. I will certainly recommend this law firm to every friend of mine. The best of it, you communicate with them through a convenient online system and you get a response in less than 24 hours.”

On May 2nd, 2016, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Visiting Associate Professor in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).


General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Visiting Associate Professor

Country of Origin: Jordan

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Michigan

Approval Notice Date: May 2nd, 2016

Processing Time: 8 months, 6 days

Case Summary:

A little over 8 months after we filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on behalf of a visiting associate professor from Jordan, Nebraska Service Center took action on his case by granting their approval. Our client chose to file I-485 applications for himself and his family while his EB-2 NIW was pending approval and he is currently waiting for a favorable outcome from the USCIS. Once the I-485 applications are approved, our client and his family will obtain their green cards.

Submitting a strong petition:

To prove that our client qualified for the national interest waiver, North America Immigration Law Group had to compile a wealth of information pertaining to his research efforts on the development of new tools and algorithms for diagnostic tools and novel research tools in industrial electronics, fault diagnostics, neurology, and foolproof watermarking technologies. We had to prove that our client’s findings are of extreme importance to the United States, most notably its healthcare industry, cybertechnology and cybersecurity industries, automotive industry, and advancement of neurological brain connectivity understanding.

Padding the petition with evidence:

Like any other legal case, we had to submit supporting evidence to bolster our client’s EB-2 NIW petition. Emphasis was placed on recommendation letters volunteered by other expert electrical engineers. Here is what one of these experts had to say about our client’s work: “He is certainly a leader in both the field of electrical and computer engineering and in the area of neural signal processing modelling. I have seen nothing but great success from [Client] so far and I expect to see similar success in his research for years to come.” We also documented the 7 journal articles, 1 doctoral dissertation, and numerous conference papers to his name. The 112 citations gathered from his work, his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the 56 times he reviewed manuscripts produced by his peers were also noted. All the evidence that we presented to the USCIS indubitably proved that our client is a force to be reckoned with in the field of electrical engineering.

Awaiting positive news:

We join our client as he celebrates the approval of his EB-2 NIW petition. We also wish him and his family the best with their pending I-485 applications and we look forward to helping them obtain their green cards.
