Case Summary:

A prominent transmission planning engineer engaged the legal services of North America Immigration Law Group ( for help with his I-140 petition (first step in the green card process). After thoroughly going through his credentials, we verified that the best course of action to get a green card would be to file his I-140 petition under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). As soon as an attorney-client relationship arose, we immediately set out to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research is important to the United States and that not many other researchers can mirror his success.

Steps Leading Up to Petition Approval:

As strong as our client’s credentials were, and as skilled as our legal team was at putting together successful EB-2 NIW petitions, it did not change the fact that gaining petition approval was a challenging task. We started off by asking our client to gather recommendation letters from other power systems engineers in his field. The handful of letters that he managed to obtain were strong and certainly served their purpose of proving to the USCIS that our client’s work positively impacts the nation. For instance, one of the letters stated that: “[Client’s] investigations are of paramount importance to a number of industries in the United States, from electrical energy companies to financial sectors to national security.”

These recommendation letters were accompanied by summaries of our client’s portfolio: his citation count, publication record, and research projects. When we filed the case, our client’s work on power system stability had amassed 117 citations, and he had published 9 journal articles and 2 conference publications. He had also conducted more than a dozen peer reviews for various scientific journals. We used these accomplishments and other evidence that we had collected to firmly establish that our client’s investigations are essential to the United States’ efforts to increase energy independence and minimize the national costs associated with large-scale power outages.

In Conclusion:

The USCIS spent 4 months and 2 days reviewing this NIW case before granting their approval. We are pleased at the outcome and would like to thank our client for placing his trust in us. Our client chose to file his I-485 application (second and final step in the green card process) by following the clear guidelines in our D.I.Y. Packet. We join him as he awaits an optimistic outcome from the USCIS.
