What are my chances of applying under EB1? Also, whether anyone knows any good lawyers.

Please feel free to send an email goel_ar at yahoo dot com.

Thanks,

physician for EB1 ??

Hi
My husband is a physician from india on his 3rd year of H-1 right now . He has been offered the position for Assistant professor in his field at one of the best hospitals /university from july 2010.
Can someone please help us to assess his chances of getting a GC in EB-1 category.
He was a superspecialist in his field in India with just a handful of physicians having the same degree but we wonder would that be of any interest to officials here in USA Green card deptt.
He also did 1 year fellowship in one of the IVY League institution.
and now he is working as an instructor at this place where they re making him an assistant professor
He has 2 publications( recent ) in well known American Journals.
1 paper presentation in extremely tough to get into conference .
We ve not asked around but pretty sure will get good recommendations from wellknown people in his field from IVY hospital as well as from his place of work.
THATS IT ,nothing more
so what re his chances to get EB1b ,and what should he improve on to get EB-1

There are two types of EB1 that may be applicable here: 1) EB1- Extraordinary Abilities (http://bit.ly/dophyK) and 2) EB1 - Outstanding Researcher(http://bit.ly/alNpBa) .
The evidence requirements are slightly easier in OR than EA. EA is extremely difficult.

I think your chances are good. A well-prepared case is very likely to go through. IMHO, mention all the above in your petition but focus on citation, reviewer, and publication and fit them to judge of work of others, scholarly publication and field contribution. Good luck.

Hi, thanks for starting this quote. I have question about possibilities for me to apply for EB1A. Here is brief about me:

PhD in Neuroscience from India.
Got postdoc in US on J1.
Applied for EB2-NIW in Jan 28th, 2010.
Got EB2-NIW approved Mar 30th, 2010.

My profile:
- Current Research: Stem cell transplantation and Neuroscience
- 11 Publications (1 review paper, 9 res papers), more than 20 citations
- News and Media reports (including LA times, Google news etc etc: >20, throughout the world)
- Book Chapters: 1
- Conference presentations >10
- Research fellowship: 1 (India)
- Poster award: 1
- Best research award: 2
- Accreditation to professional organizations: 4 (out of this: 3 are Invited or recommended affiliations)
- Research Grant (on Stem cells): 1
- Journal reviewer experience: for 3 international journals
- Total research experience (including 5 yrs of Phd): 10 yrs
- Already approved for J1-212(e) waiver

Question: I just don't have unbearable patience to wait for my Priority Date to become current for my approved EB2-NIW.

My lawyer is willing to try form EB1A, ofcourse, by charging fees !

Am I eligible to apply for EB1A? (I don't think that my present employer with sign on I-140 for EB1-OR)

Your suggestions and response will be greatly appreciated.

I am will be graduating with a PhD from one of the top 5 schools in US and will be doing a post doc starting August.
My F-1 visa is expiring (I will be on OPT) and so I was thinking of applying for a GC under EB1 so that I can travel to India and conferences outside US.
These are my details:

- PhD in Computer Science (USA)
- Reviewer for 1 journal and 2 conferences
- 7 journal papers (5 first author)
- 10 conference papers (8 first author)
- 3 invited book chapters
- over 120 citations
- 4 poster presentations
- 5 international awards (best thesis, best papers, phd fellowship ....)
- 3 professional memberships

Do you think I have a strong case?

I have a few questions:
1. Typically, how long will it be before I have the GC in hand?
2. Which center should I be filing too?
3. Can I self-apply using a DIY kit?
4. If will be on OPT for the post doc, will it reduce my chances for a green card?

Excellent question and good deduction. Yes there are definite criteria for most mental illness's but you are right in that much of it is 'implied' due to their documented behaviour rather than having any factual basis.

Visa policy

Visitor Visa is a non-immigrant visa issued to people entering U.S. temporarily for business (B-1), or for pleasure/ medical treatment (B-2). These are generally issued for a period of six months, but an additional maximum extension of 6 months can be granted based on the USCIS(INS) approval.

Hi, all,

Having been waiting for labor certificate for many years and less than 2 years left on my H1B, I am considering to pursue EB1-EA. However, I am not sure if I qualify for it. My credentials are:

- PhD in CS (USA)
- Reivewer for 3 journals
- Reviewer for 3 conferences
- 1 journal paper (first author)
- 6 conference papers (first author)
- 7 conference papers (co-author)
- 5 citations
- 3 poster presentations (a regional science and business exposition)
- 3 professional memberships

As for the 3 memberships (IEEE, ACM, MICCAI), they are not those associations which require the judgement by recognized experts as indicated in I-140.

My questions are:
1. Do I qualify for EB1-EA?
2. If so, is it worth for me to go with PP?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

I have a question regarding EB1 EA/OA. I have a PhD in Electrical Engineering. I have some publications (8 journals, 20 conferences) all in very reputable journal/conferences. Reviewed some Journal papers (different journals), No major prize, 10 recommnedations (decent), one patent, Membership: IEEE, phi kappa phi, OSA

Sorry to say...you do not qualify.
For EB1 you need international recognition i.e. your papers and research should be widely cited and used used by international researchers.
Recommendation letters are useless.
You might qualify or eb2 though
