NIW Success Helps Indian National Achieve Career GoalsPublished: Friday, June 14, 2013 6:00 am
One of our previous clients, now an established science researcher, sent his former post-doctoral student to us for assistance. The post-doc was earning a living as a pharmacist, and his employer had filed a permanent residence case on his behalf However, his heart was in research and indeed, he had had some documented accomplishment there. So, when a research job opened up with the post-doc’s former supervisor, he wanted to move to the new position -- although it meant abandoning the pending green card case. Since there was no institutional sponsor available for the research position, we filed an NIW case based on the post-doc’s past accomplishments. The I-140 was approved less than two months later and we were able to recapture the priority date of the previous permanent residence case that had been pending. We are pleased to have helped this client towards a fulfilling research career in the United States.
