An Analysis of EB-1 Cases Approved from July to September 2010


BY Zhang Associates, P.C. [ October 18, 2010 at 16:46:03 ]

From July to September 2010, our firm received 26 EB-1 case approvals: 16 EB-1(a), 9 EB-1(b), and 1 EB-1(c). USCIS approved 15 of these cases without a request for evidence. Thus,from January to September 2010, our firm received 127 EB-1 case approvals. In addition, from January to September 2010, our firm also received 168 NIW case approvals.

Out of the 26 EB-1 cases approved in the past three months, most applicants had a Ph. D and conducted scientific research. However, a few did not. For example, our firm received an EB-1 (a) approval for an applicant who has a master degree in petroleum engineering and worked for an oil company as an engineer. Among the sample of approved applicants, most conduct research in medical science, biology and engineering, while others focus on computer science, and finance, etc.

Three of the most popular job titles for applicants who received approval were that of a “postdoctoral associate”, “assistant professor” and “research scientist”. Those specializing in these occupations mainly conduct research, produce papers, and attend conferences. Because of the nature of scientific work, it is much easier to meet EB-1 requirements. Of course, as mentioned earlier, this should not discourage you from applying if you happen to fulfil different, but equally comparable criteria. Each case varies and it is difficult to determine whether or not you qualify unless you come in for an evaluation.

In addition to the above, our firm has also compiled data on other criteria. The average number of journal papers published among these applicants was 14. The average of number of reviews conducted was 16. The average processing time for these applicants was 106 days or three and half a months. The longest it took to approve an application was 204 days, while the shortest was 10 days. Based on the data we compiled, it appears that the average processing time for our applicants is shorter than what USCIS typically promises (around 4 months).

Finally, only 4 out of the 26 EB-1 cases were sent via premium processing. In our personal experience, we have found that premium processing can expedite adjudication of your application. However, if you are not a highly qualified applicant, you could receive a RFE notice as a result. Furthermore, in our practice, we have heard that a USCIS officer only has 15 minutes to read through an application. Given the stringent time constraints, officers sometimes automatically issue a RFE to fulfil the 15 day processing guarantee while not having to approve or deny a petition.

Again, before you start the application process, it is imperative that you consult with a highly trained legal professional, particularly since USCIS has become stricter with EB-1 applications after a memo was released on August 18, 2010. In essence, the USCIS memo breaks the EB-1 evaluation process up into two parts – 1) evaluating whether the applicant meets the baseline criteria for the immigration category and 2) determining whether the applicant’s evidence demonstrates the required high level of expertise for the immigration category. In the second part of the review process the USCIS will evaluate the evidence to see if, as a whole, it proves by a preponderance of the evidence that the applicant is at the very top of his or her field of endeavour.

For more information on the 26 EB-1 cases approved from July to September 2010, please refer to the table below.
