Immigration Status for a Chinese Researcher
Client: A Medical Research Institute in Cleveland, Ohio
Beneficiary’s Nationality: China
Case Type: I-140 Petition for Skilled Worker or Professionals (Often Includes Outstanding Researcher)
Date of Application: December 28, 2011
Date of Approval : August 22, 2012
BACKGROUND: UPON ITS DECISION TO HIRE AN OUTSTANDING RESEARCHER ON A PERMANENT BASIS, our client retained us to secure an immigration status for its choice employee. Therefore, when we had found the beneficiary eligible for this benefit, we filed this I-140 petition to achieve our client’s objective.
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that its choice researcher had been internationally recognized in his particular field, possessed more than three years of research experience in his field of expertise and that the application was based on an offer from the current employer.
WITHIN EIGHT MONTHS, our client’s choice employee was granted an immigration status to continue his research in the U.S.
CHALLENGE: As much as the our client the petitioner is a frequent filer of this particular application, this case requires as much care as others of the same kind. We had to prove each and every criterion by verifiable evidence. Because this petition was on behalf of the employer, we had to make a persuasive argument as to why the employer, based on the offer, needs this employee who meets all criteria. Our argument is only as strong as the evidence gathered allows it to be. Surely, before proceeding with this type of immigration petition, consult a reliable lawyer.
