I am very grateful to Chen for the amazing job they have done. When I started contacting the lawyers for Green Card application more than a year ago, I was told that my case is weak, the number of citations was low (~40 at a time of submission) and it is better to wait. Chen Immigration Law Associates was the only firm that said my case is strong and in case of denial I’ll get the refund. I couldn’t afford waiting any more so I decided to apply with their help. I am glad that I made that decision. I have got I-140 approval!!! They are really great at what they do!
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, 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.
I140 approved within 3 days after packet delivered
Filed my case under premium processing with EB1A category. On september 14th 2015 the USCIS received the packet. On 16th they issued the case receipt notice which was mailed to me and I got it on 19th. I checked the online status and the online status showed case approved as of Sept 17th 2015.
Excellent experience with WeGreened. I highly recommend their service. The documents and instructions are very easy to follow. One suggestion: PLEASE WRITE YOUR RESEARCH SUMMARY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. It took me almost a month the get this task done. AND my recommenders were a little lazy. The whole process took me less than 4 months from scratch to I140 approval but I know that almost 7 weeks were wasted on my part.
Great service by WeGreened and would definitely recommend any and everyone who is looking for green card application under any category.
I140 approved on Aug 13 with the help from WeGreened
Here is my case:
Paper 12 (with 2 paper in Chinese)
Field: Biology (molecular biology)
Filing date: March 24, 2015
Approval date: August 13, 2015
I would like to thank WeGreened for their professional help on my case. They gave me instructions on each step. The only good thing I have done in the whole process is to follow their instructions. Yes, all credits should be given to WeGreened for the approval of my case.
If you are busy or don't know how to handle I140 petition, I highly recommend WeGreened.
Just got my I-140 approved (EB1A) - less than 3 weeks
I just got my I-140 approved under EB1A case. Exciting news. All credits to Chen Immigration (WeGreened). I was flabbergasted at how fast it to get approved (5 days after upgrade to Premium processing; less than 3 weeks from original petiton date). I live in Taiwan and I found their information from Google search and decided to contact them. It tells me there are still some honest hardworking attorneys out there. These guys are very professional; excellent communication at every steps; extremely knowledgible about immigration stuff; and fantastic to work with. They are true The Leader of High Quality Immigration Petition. I had an excellent experience them. Without any hesitation, I highly recommend Chen Immigration to anyone who is planning to petiton for immigration visa (EB1A, NIW or name it). Smiling all day.
I am working as a research scientist under OPT, F1 visa status in US. Recently i filed 1-140 (NIW) and status is pending. I got very good job offer from UK for three years and I have to move UK in May. I also don't want lose my green card or any future troubles to obtain green card. Could you please suggest me serious suggestion,
Thanks to immihelp for having a platform to share our experiences which in-turn helping those who are preparing for it.
I wont give any suggestion on the documentation because you had to get all the documents as suggested by some of the other members .
OFC on 8th Dec 2014 :
There's a big queue outside and we need to wait on the footpath yes foot path in a queue to enter the premises . So suggestion was reach there just 15 min before and at the starting of the queue find the board with the slot timings go an join the queue .
As said please look at the board with the slot timings at the starting of the queue as the queue messes/merges going further and you wont know in which line you are standing and its my personal experience and there's nothing to do inside just biometrics (scanning ur right and left hand) and get the stampped DS-160 which need to carry the same document for the next day interview
Visa Interview 9th Dec 2014 10:30 am:
Reached the venue before 45 min and the queue was around 200 mts long . Will miss the timings if we stand up in the queue So went ahead and spoke to the VFS employee and told him that we had a kid and listening to he checked someting in the tab and asked us to go ahead (we are lucky here as the queue was long and its very hot with full traffic) .After that there's a queue to deposit your personal belongings so make sure you wont bring any electronics or bags and I promise it will delay the whole thing and brings up more tension .
Point to Note : Except your documents and some money dont bring any sought of bags or electronics (Security wont allow the file pin inside) .If you have anything then need to stand in another queue to deposit so think about it . They wont allow the File Pins inside so make sure you staple it and put it in a plain transparent file .
So After depositing the personal things you need to stand in another queue where the manual security checks your timings and passport along with the DS-160. He will opens the gate and now you enter the consulate(Till this time you will be in the open footpath with no cover under hot sun and full traffic) again one more security check where they will dump your documents in to a tray which will be scanned and one more human security check .Once cleared you will go inside and wait for the dependent as they are standing in another queue
Points to Note : Till the above point you need to stand on footpath with no cover ,full traffic and pollution . The security guys inside dump the papers and files in the tray after scanning while collecting it back please make sure all the originals and xerox was collected correctly any mess here will create more tension . take time and no hurries (I noticed some senior people documents got lost here in the sense the sequence and they had no idea which one to show for the VO when asked)
Real process :
You will enter the main building where a person will scan the passport and gives you a token take that and follow a queue where the finger print(which was taken on the biometrics) check happens and the structure remains the same (visa interview where a lady/person sits on the other side of the glass and as asks for information) and nothing will be asked just greetings exchanged and finger print checking .
Sit there and wait for the token number gets displayed and proceed to the counter
Point to Note : Listen carefully about the questions and slang which will help when your turn comes(We did the same) . guys before us was from cisco and everything was clear for him but while explaining his R & R along with project I can hear the stumbling of the words and got confused and got some slip for submitting some documents .
So its our turn and we went ahead and made my son to seat on the slab and kept the all documents to the other side
VO : Good Morning
We : Good Morning
VO : How are you doing ?
We : Doing good
Informed my wife to take the kid from the slab as some one had fallen down last time
VO : PP
We : Handed over the PP
VO : Which company you are working
We : Answered
VO : Which client
We : Answered
Golden Words "Your Visa Approved" and handed over the pamplet
By the time VO told that golden words my kid pulled out the finger print scanner and asking my company tag .... In this confusion the VO had given us the rights pamphlet and taken all our passport thats it .....
POINT TO NOTE : AFTER COMING OUT BE SERIOUS(IN THAT HAPPY MOOD ITS DIFFICULT) DONT LOOK AT ANY AUTO WALAS AND DONT RESPOND/CONSIDER AT ALL .IF YOU LOOK THATS IT THEY WILL JUMP ON YOU LIKE HONEY BEES AND ASK 200 FOR 1KM SAYING TO GIVE IT IN THAT HAPPY MOOD SO MY SUGGESTION WAS DONT STOP ANY WHERE NEAR AS THE AUTO WALAS WILL LOOT YOU LIKE ANYTHING (NOT EVEN LISTEN TO THEM OR CONSIDER THEM). SO GO AHEAD AND DONT STOP ANY WHERE NEAR THE CONSULATE AND WALK ATLEAST HALF A KILOMETER SUCH THAT AUTO WALAS CANT FIND YOU WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM THEN STOP AN AUTO AND BARGAIN (GIVE THAT EXTRA MONEY TO POOR ON YOUR HAPPY OCCUASION) . HIGHLIGHTING THIS AS I AM A VICTIM WHO RESPONDED AND PAID A 100 FOR JUST A 1.5 KM . DONT EVEN DRINK THE TENDER COCONUT OUTSIDE HE WILL ALSO LOOT YOU
APPLICABLE TO ONLY THOSE WHO TRAVEL BY AUTOS TO CONSULATE
I-140, How long is it taking for Approval these day?
I applied for my I-140 in May of this year. Receipt issued within a week on May 16, 2014. It almost 6 months now and I see no progress on my case. Please note, it was not filed in Premium, however I thought it should take about 4 months to get done.
Anyone else applied around that time frame that got recent approvals?
