I was just contacted regarding the approval of my self-petition for permanent residence in the NIW category.
Here is some of my background information: Degree: Ph.D. from a research University in the USA Field: Microbiology/ Biomedical engineering Job during petition: Post-doc (on H-1B VISA) Publication: 11 research articles, 1 review article Total citation numbers: 441 (October 2015) Home country: TAIWAN USCIS processing time: 147 days
When I began the application, I knew my case was strong but didn't know how to start. I contacted several immigration lawyers, but Associates said that they have a total refund policy (for people like me who have a strong case) if the application is unfortunately rejected. So I decided to retain the firm.
Although I never met them in person, they were prompt in replying my questions and concerns within 24 hours. They are extremely professional; they wrote an excellent cover letter and four beautiful recommendation letters for me that were tailored to my background. Because of all their help, the only thing that I suffered from the process was the time awaiting for the USCIS to make the decision.
If you need to work like a real person does and don't have much time dealing with all the law and regulations, save some money to hire an immigration attorney to help you.
