Extraordinary Ability Petitions (EB-1A) and National Interest Waiver
Many big companies have stopped petitioning for permanent residence for their employees. This means that for lots of successful, high-productivity individuals, including those on H and L visas, self-petitioning for permanent residency is the only way for you and your children to remain long-term in the U.S. Sheridan Green Law PLLC has helped dozens of individuals sponsor themselves for a green card through the “national interest waiver” and "extraordinary ability" category.
Senior Attorney Sheridan Green is a highly accomplished immigration appellate lawyer, having won important cases (including 6 precedential decisions) before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). If your case was denied by an immigration judge, you only have 30 days to seek review with the BIA. And if the BIA denied your appeal, you only have 30 days to seek review with the federal circuit court of appeals.
Immigrant or non-immigrant visa petition stuck with USCIS? Has the listed processing time passed with no decision? We can sue them in federal court. It's called a "mandamus" petition, and we do it all the time, and it works.
