First of all, thanks for keeping a rather excellent site and helping people
like myself. I have been a full professor at internationally renowned university in Europe
and hold visiting professorships of several US Universities. I believe I
qualify all the requirement of EB-1 category. I am currently seeking to apply for a EB-1(a) and NIW petition
by myself using your DIY Green Card packages.
I am considering setting up business (research laboratory) with these colleagues (US National).
I would also like to know about the impact of such EB-1/NIW application on our
stay in the USA if we are still waiting for the outcome of the EB-1(a) and NIW
petitions beyond the visa time limit?

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your wonderful service. I have found your website very helpful.
I am an assistant professor in a university and would really appreciate
your opinion about one question I have. Is there any opportunity to
apply for special handling for professors in an university? and Do I
need to wait 6 months before applying through the RIR process (the
school would show a "pattern" of "real world" recruitment done in the
period of 6 months prior to filing the application)?
Thanks in advance for your insights,

Thank you very much for your
quick reply, I will buy the two DIY kits. If you have time, please
let me know should I submit I-485 together, or it is same for me to submit after
Thank you very much.
Email from Dusya on 11/15/2003
I am currently employed as a tenure-track professor at an University in
U.S.A. I am considering to file my I-140 self-petition in an EB1-EA
category, by following the samples in your EB1-EA DIY package.
its supporting letter, the University administration states that it
expects to hire me on a permanent tenure position when my tenure-track
appointment is completed. Do I have to fill in the Part 6 of the I-140
petition which is "Basic information about the proposed employment" or
do I have to mark this part as "N/A", since this is a self-petition?
Thank you very much in
advance for your kind reply.
Email from Valeriy on 11/6/2003
A friend of mine gave me your outstanding web site address. I would like to know if you
can be of any help to me for the J1 waiver question. On my DS-2019, it is mentioned that the two year residency does not
apply to me. My question is:
I apply for the job and get accepted, and the company applies for an
H1-B visa, but somehow cannot get the H1-B visa because of the
reduction in the number of H1-B visa allocated recently by the US
govt., can I still carry on with a renewal of my J1 visa.
Theoretically, I can stay for 3 years on the J1 visa at the university
I look forward to hearing from you.
Email from Kerry Qin on 10/22/2003
for the wonderful service you provide. I am very interested in your Do-it-yourself-packages.
I want to ask you if I am qualified for EB1-EA application.
My brief information is as following: Ph.D. obtained 10 years ago in China;
Assistant professor in physics since 1996, at Japan; About 25 publications in scientific journals (total citations over
50), and some conference presentations; one national award in China, one national award in Japan.
Looking forward to your reply soon, Thank you,

My friend gave me the
reference to your website and I found it very professional and
informative. I'm going to get the Complete Do-It-Yourself Package, but
I am not sure which one to choose.
My university is sponsoring my permanent residency application.
Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the differences between
categories. My understanding is that if my school sponsors me, then I
have to apply as "Extraordinary Ability" category. However, I have a
feeling that I can apply as "Outstanding Researcher/Professor", which
is faster to get approved. Is it true? And another question: can I
apply for the both? And which package should I get from your service?
Thank you in advance.
8. Email from Raj on
With the recommendation from my
friend for your superb service, I am interested in "do-it-yourself" package for green card application. But I am not
sure which category is the fastest and best for me.
am not sure which category I should use against to file my green card
application. Someone told me that my non-fixed term can be considered
as "permanent job" to meet the requirement for EB1-OR. For NIW, I do
not know how to link my research to the national interest. I would
appreciate your suggestion and then decide which package to purchase.
9. Email from Sladkova on
I came by your extremely useful and informative website. I want to
apply for my Green Card at the earliest, but keep getting different
opinions from different people, so I am confused as hell now!
am at present an Assistant Professor, I have a total of about 13
publications (including 5 journals, 5 conference, and 2 book chapters).
Couple are still pending review. All publications are in top-notch IEEE
publications. I have reviewed various papers for journals and
I would like to apply for my Green card
by myself and use one of your do it yourself kits. Please advice as to what I should do.
Eagerly awaiting your reply.
from Persikov on 9/13/2003
Thank you very much for providing such a great service to I-140 applicants. My
question is: If I receive a RFE or a denial for the I-140 from USCIS, while I am
appealing the case, would that affect the progress for my I-485?
Thank you in advance very much for your help.
11. Email from Anand on
Thank you very much for answering my question on an I-140, EB1-EA
petition some two weeks ago. May I trouble you with one more question,
I wonder if USCIS is normally happy with
my such heavy I-140 applications? Do they have any restrictions on the volume of the application material?
Thank you very much in advance for your kind help in this matter.
from Shuwei on 8/25/2003
I came across your website, which is very informative and
helpful. I and my husband are currently working in the US, as post-doctoral
researchers with J-1 visas.
Could you kindly let us know as to which
category we fit in the best to apply for green card, and also, do we both have
to apply separately or can one of us apply and include the other person as
family? If so, which one of us should be the primary applicant ?
hear from you soon. Thanks in advance.
13. Email from Valey on
Thank you very much for giving invaluable advices to those of us who is going
through a stressful immigration process. Thank you very much for your previous
great advice for me to send a letter to USCIS with a request to expedite I-140, because of the danger for my
son to reach 21 before the processing is completed.
Thank you again.

I have subscribed to your

USCIS in May,
2003. I have still to hear back from the USCIS.
I have heard that the USCIS is currently slow in processing
applications. Have you heard through your clients of faster processing times?

questions. If you could kindly answer my questions, it would be appreciated.
Is it OK to change my job just after stamping? or do I have to wait
until I get the real green card? Thank you.

your EB-1 and NIW packages and find them very helpful.
I am currently on a J-1 visa and will complete my specialty training in
June 2004. I'm going to try to apply concurrently for the EB1-EA, the EB1-OR, and the EB2-NIW.
Do I need to get a J-1 waiver if I am applying directly for evidence-based residency status?

I saw your great web site. Thanks for the help you are providing to many of us. My
I-485 is presently pending (filed in Dec
2002) in Vermont center. I have
EAD now. My question is If I get job in CA, whether my I-485 case remains in Vermont
or moves to other center? Does it affect my I-485 processing time?
Thanks a lot in advance.
21. Email from Xiao Dong
Thank you very much for your quick response. I heard that there is a new rule about the concurrent submission of the 140
and 485. As for EB1-Extraordinary, can I apply for the work permit immediately
after the Receipt Notice of the 140 and 485? How long it takes?
Thank you very much!
22. Email from
Venkat on 5/29/2003
Thank you so much for your prompt answer. Would you mind if I ask you
one more question?
I heard that if I-140 has been filed, and if I don't hear for 60 days, I can
go to the local USCIS office and get the EAD card there. Is that true?
Or I-140 must be approved before they allow us to apply for the EAD?
you very much.

I just graduated for my PhD degree at the beginning of this month and
am still looking for a full-time permanent job in the US. Thank you so

question is the following:

difference is among EB1-Extra, EB1-OR and NIW categories, in case that all the
petitions for I-140 are approved?

category. Please review my attached resume for my qualification.
I understand that EB1-OR was a better choice. My school is back logged
and I will have to wait about 10 more months be eligible for the sponsorship; although I have accepted this position with the
condition that they would sponsor me.

though I filed those concurrently?
