The EB-1 visa is the fastest employment-based green card available to foreign nationals of extraordinary ability in science, arts, education, business, or athletics. To qualify in this category, an individual must have extensive documentation of his or her accomplishments and evidence that he or she is one of the small percentage who have “risen to the top of his or her field of endeavor.” This visa is self-sponsored and does not require a PERM Labor Certification or a job offer from a U.S.-based employer. The successful eb1 lawyer petition also allows the petitioner to advance his or her priority date in other employment-based immigrant categories, including the EB-2 First Preference and EB-3 categories.
What is the approval rate for EB-1A?
Our attorneys are well-versed in the EB-1 process and know how to prepare a successful petition that will meet USCIS’ rigorous adjudicative standards. The denial rates of EB-1 Extraordinary Ability petitions by the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) in fiscal year 2018 serve as a useful weathervane and are a reminder that this is not a Do-It-Yourself process.
Sanjeev worked with Chris and his team on a complex and time-sensitive EB-1 case. The work they put into the application was evident in the outcome of the approval letter. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a highly competent and knowledgeable immigration attorney. They are truly professionals at their craft. I can’t thank them enough for their help! – Sanjeev M.
