St. Louis Immigration Law Firm Helps Local Professor Obtain Green Card as EB-1 Outstanding Professor; I-140 approved in 24 hours

Spread the love

"Thank you oh so much," was the phrase recently delivered to us by a local university professor after receiving word that she had been granted lawful permanent resident status as an Outstanding Professor in the EB-1 Category.  Our client teaches at a local university and we had prepared an extensive package demonstrating the outstanding nature of her application.

This particular client had received numerous prizes and grants in her field of study.  She had collaborated with researches from around the country and throughout the world in her particular area of expertise.  Her work had been cited by experts in other scientific journals and she had been asked to judge the work submitted by others to academic journals.

While we certainly never purposefully add bulk to an application, this particular client had such extensive documentation of her numerous successes, that her application with USCIS ended up weighing nearly 4 pounds.  Because we paid the premium processing fee, we knew that our client's application would be decided relatively quickly.  We were shocked, however, to find out that the professor's I-140 immigrant worker petition (which served as the basis of the green card application) had been approved in less than 24 hours.  We have had many successful immigration applications in the past, but this was an absolute first!

We are very happy for our client, the professor.  The United States will be a better place because she will stay here.
