Perhaps you’re here on a temporary visa and looking to stay longer by using an employment-based green card. In either scenario, you may qualify for the National Interest Waiver (NIW). The NIW eliminates various immigration hurdles by allowing you to self-petition for your green card without an employer. But like many government processes, filing for this waiver is often confusing and challenging. Having the baseline qualifications is not enough to get approval on this type of waiver, as there are so many discretionary aspects of the application that can be frustrating and difficult to understand. You might be frustrated and wondering whether you even have any shot of being approved.
Our team will help you exhaust all legal resources to ensure that your paperwork is accurate; written with an individualized strategy to communicate your strengths and accomplishments; and will position you for approval! We serve families, researchers, and business professionals looking to leverage the talents and qualifications that set them apart from other applicants. We provide you with full-service support, including multilingual speakers and legal experts committed to your success.
Depending on your experience and credentials, many immigrating professionals can accelerate their entry into the United States or find valid ways to extend their stay. Employment-based immigration applications are one pathway to doing that. These applications can sometimes require an employer to submit a labor certificate to underscore that there are no US employees who can fill a specific job, hence the need to hire a qualifying, skilled immigrant. However, a National Interest Waiver petition allows qualifying immigrant applicants to petition for an employment-based, second-preference category without an employer and essentially to request the US government waive the requirement for a labor certification towards the petition. This, therefore, clears the way for applicants to self-petition for their employment-based green card.
With a National Interest Waiver application, you sponsor yourself for your work opportunity rather than relying on a specific employer. We have helped many skilled professionals who were able to use their experience and decorated careers to successfully petition for permanent residency (green cards) through the National Interest Waiver.
