Recently, the Woog Law Office helped an exceptional academic obtain approval as an Outstanding Professor in the EB-1 category – the I-140 visa petition was approved in just 3 days!
The Department of Homeland Security’s Texas Service Center approved the petition of a highly regarded university on behalf of a tenure-track professor of applied mathematics. The Employment-based category in question (EB-1) for outstanding professors offers numerous advantages such as lack of a numerical quota and the availability of premium processing. However, approval can be difficult as requests for this classification require extensive proof of the beneficiary’s high level of skill, international renown, and contributions to the field.
In this case, the Woog Law Office put together a well-researched and fully documented package of evidence that included the client’s awards, published articles, detailed letters of references, and citations. He had also been asked to judge the work of other scientists as part of a panel and in peer reviewed journals. Our office supplied a complete list of numbered exhibits and a lengthy legal brief explaining how this proof showed the applicant met the eligibility criteria for approval. This highly skilled professor is a talented teacher and researcher who will now obtain his green card in a matter of only a few months and will continue to contribute to academic life and innovation in the U.S.
