2010年八九月批准的NIW,EB1-A/B申请及专业背景

This report includes fourteen (14) NIW, EB-1A and EB-1B I-140 cases filed by
Liu & Associates and approved by the USCIS in August and September 2010. In
the past few months, USCIS adjudication of I-140 cases has been
significantly slowing down. As a result, we had fewer I-140 cases approved
in August and September than in a regular month. Also, as a result, a large
number of I-140 cases have been pending over four (4) months, the USCIS
posted processing time for I-140 petitions.

Recently we have received numerous inquiries in regard to the USCIS Interim
Memorandum following Kazarian and whether USCIS has raised the bar for EB-1A, EB-
1B and NIW petitions. So far, we have not seen a clear trend of change or
USCIS policy shift regarding EB-1A, EB-1B and NIW adjudication. In August
and September, we only had one I-140 case denied by USCIS, that is a fairly
strong EB-1A petition denied by the TSC Premium Processing Service. Lawyers
from the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) have complained
about the troubling premium processing of EB-1A, and we strongly warn our
clients against requesting premium processing for their EB-1A cases.

Here we list the basic credentials of each approved case and hope our
readers find the information helpful. For confidentiality purpose, a numeric
number is assigned to replace the petitioner/beneficiary's name in each
case. It is our firm’s policy to hold client’s information strictly
confidential.
