In EB-1B petitions, unlike National Interest Waivers (NIW), the standard applied is clearly defined and a permanent research or teaching position offer is always required.
Before beginning your EB-1B process, a Z&A experienced attorney(s) will first evaluate your situation to determine the options for your potential immigration petition. You may send us your resume either by email at email@example.com or by fax at (713)-771-8368. After reviewing your resume, we will provide an honest assessment of your credentials to determine if the EB-1B petition is appropriate for you. Moreover, we will advise you on what strategy to adopt and whether it is better for you to petition under more than one category simultaneously, such as EB-1A, NIW or Labor Certification.
After you retain us for your EB-1B case, we will
effectively communicate with your (potential) employer to facilitate their sponsorship for your petition and ensure that they will be supportive throughout the entire petitioning process;
provide sample recommendation letters applicable to your field, which can be used as a reference for the initial draft of the Letters of Recommendation;
review and edit your draft letters of recommendation to ensure that they include the appropriate language and meet EB-1B requirements;
guide you in collecting all the documents and information needed for your EB-1B petition, including the job offer letter from the sponsoring employer;
organize all the required documentation for your EB-1B petition, including the signed recommendation letters;
draft the petition letter that explains how the evidence proves that you should qualify as an “Outstanding Researcher or Professor”;
submit the completed petition materials to the proper USCIS Service Center; and
contact the USCIS for the status inquiry of your pending case.
If the USCIS makes a request for additional evidence on your pending case, we will respond and submit the additional documentation required for your case to the USCIS in time. As soon as the USCIS makes a final decision on your EB-1B application, we will inform you of the result.
