Books: 1

Poem Collections: 3

 Case Summary: 

An English Language and Literature assistant professor with Ph.D. in English Language Teaching filed his Form I-140 (NIW category) with the help of the Law Offices of Kameli and Associates. He intended to continue teaching English Language and Literature at the university level in the United States. He had three articles which were cited 22 times, a dictionary publication, 3 poem collections, 1 recommendation letter and 1 appreciation letter as supporting documents for his Form I-140.

To showcase that this client’s prospective endeavor has substantial merit and national importance to the United States and he is qualified for Form I-140 approval, we submitted extensive information including the shortage of language teachers in the U.S. We also argued for his strong academic and professional record including his degree, articles, dictionary publication, publication of his articles in reputable journals, successful teaching experience, appreciation letter and recommendation letter.

EB-2 NIW petition approved for a medical student

 Field: General Medicine

 Position at the time of case filing: Medical student and researcher at a university

 Articles: 2

 Citations: 3

 Recommendation letters: 7

 Request for Evidence: Yes

The client that the Law Offices of Kameli and Associates had the opportunity to work with in this case was a medical student and researcher at a Grenadian university who sought to secure a research position at a U.S. university. Even though he had few articles with few citations and was still pursuing his medical degree, we successfully demonstrated that he has continued to make considerable progress and contribute to his field of medicine as well as the United States at large, even as a student, and his admission to the U.S. would benefit the United States. 

 In order for our client’s case to be successful, we provided USCIS with extensive documentation proving his contributions to his field, including his articles, research positions, recommendation letters, and numerous literature pointing to his endeavor’s substantial merit and national importance. Through extensive documentation, we were able to successfully argue that our client would serve the U.S. national interest. His Form I-140 was approved on December 02, 2019.

Another approval of an EB-2 NIW for an artist

 Field: Interdisciplinary Arts and Media

 Degree: Master’s degree

 Position at the time of case filing: University Graduate

 Solo and Group Exhibitions: 6

 Recommendation Letters: 22

 Appreciation Letters: 2

 Scholarship: Yes

 Request for Evidence: No

 

Case Summary:

 6 months after the Law Offices of Kameli and Associates filed Form I-140 for an artist, USCIS approved her case without issuing an RFE (Request for Evidence). As opposed to engineering, medical, scientific and natural sciences fields which articles and citations are mostly relied on to demonstrate an individual’s qualification for EB-2 NIW approval, the results of work including exhibitions are an important factor in approvals for people with artistic background.

Our client’s proposed endeavor focused on public art and aesthetic education, particularly related to children. Her goal was to utilize what she has learned to develop new art education programs affordable to the general public, and then advance such educational programs through startup art institutions and other facilities to achieve a greater connection between art and the public.

 We made arguments as to the substantial merit of our client’s endeavor in education development as well as creative thinking, and its national importance in making art education more accessible and affordable, amongst others. We also included evidence for her being well-positioned to advance her prospective endeavor including but not limited to certificates of 6 solo and group exhibitions, scholarships, 22 recommendation letters, and coverage of her art work in newspapers and magazines.

 Thanks to our team’s efforts, her case was approved on August 07, 2019. We are glad for her success.

 In this case, we focused on our client’s successful business, her leadership and 25 years of experience in the media industry, her business contributions, and multiple testimonials from media professionals, amongst others. We successfully argued that her ongoing business would continue to further the national interests of the United States through job creation, alleviating the lack of an online Arabic news platform as well as providing accurate information on American news, culture, and values, to name a few.

 Recommendation Letters: 16

 Request for Evidence: Yes

Summary of Case:

In this case, we represented a Wushu champion and coach who sought to file Form I-140 to obtain U.S. permanent residency. Our strategy was not only to showcase our client’s track record of success in the field of Wushu, but to demonstrate that he is beyond his peers. Supporting documents including his national and international awards and medals, appreciation letters, and interviews with newspapers were submitted to USCIS.

Since our client did not possess advanced degree, we needed to establish his eligibility for the EB-2 preference category as an individual of exceptional ability. To this aim, we submitted on behalf of the client documents including five official certificates from Iran’s Wushu Federation (evidencing our client’s advanced skills in Wushu), and recognition for achievements and significant contributions to the field by peers and governmental entities. Convinced with our arguments, USCIS determined that the client’s prospective endeavor of Wushu coaching benefits the United States.
