My spouse and I are both professionals with about 15 years work experience each in multinational organizations.

My wife has an advanced engineering degree from the US (her undergraduate degree is from the US also) so she'll be the main EB-2 applicant.

We intend to contact our relatives in the US to provide recommendations for US immigration lawyers so we can get some legal advice on putting together our application so we're just at the research and information gathering stage.

This is just by way of sharing and my own contribution towards keeping the conversation going �

If you have the extra financial resources for a lawyer, then by all means go for it. The average charge I’ve heard of in recent times has ranged between $3k-4k for the lawyers fees alone!

Alternatively, this process is also something you can put together all by yourself if you do your research very well and you’re ready to put in the work.

Below is a link that could help you to get started;

https://myeb2niw.com/

There is a DIY package on that website that goes for only $150, and trust me when I say that package has ALL that you need to get started and MORE.
N.B. I have no business links or ties with the owner of the website. You can also download the free ebook from the website.

YouTube and the internet generally has many great videos and resources for sample petition letters, recommendation letters and how to properly fill the required form(s) for EB2NIW.

Good luck to you and your spouse!

This is also an additional official link for anyone who wants to have an idea on the analysis of petition letters for USCIS decision making.

https://www.uscis.gov/administrative-appeals/aao-decisions/aao-non-precedent-decisions

You can search by clicking on ‘select a topic’. B5 will show the analysis of EB2NIW appeal cases. I believe B2 should be for one of the EB1 categories.

DIY for the win mhen… Although, I’ve had a whole folder dedicated to gathering information and my exhibits for almost three years before putting in my application.

I also had sample petition letters and guidance from several friends who have also successfully gone through the process.

Anybody that has any questions can ask on this thread for all of us to learn. That’s the whole purpose of creating the thread.

Thanks for understanding, and goodluck to all of us!

Thanks, I wish myself good luck and God’s favor with my application as well. I’ll try to share my timeline and other information that might be useful to others once I receive an update from USCIS.

Lol, Indians and Chinese people ehn! Those guys are something else haha. They’ve saturated the EB2NIW field for the longest time, explains why their priority date for I-485 is not current. I admire how they share useful information among one another and keep their professional community in the US thriving.

Also, I know many Nigerians that have successfully petitioned for EB1 and EB2 categories of the NIW without employing the services of a lawyer. Many are now greencard holders and some others now US citizens.

As always, the right information is VERY key!, especially in America. smiley

With that information, my question is will your wife get a US employer to sponsor her? If not, she will have to do NIW sub category of EB2.

Then for the attorney, like I said before, familiarity of attorney to this route and to your wife professional industry is very important.

Hello Helpout12345, we're still at the research stage but from if we can meet the criteria for the NIW route that would be the preference.

I cannot over emphasize the importance of a familiar attorney in this process.

I can also show you another attorney that is bad for researchers and good for industry professionals.

Helpout12345 I really appreciate your advice here; you had mentioned it in your first post to me but I did not realize the import until you broke it down further so thank you very much for this.

We are industry professionals and my wife (principal applicant) is an engineer so do please share more on other attorneys and I will also be sure to emphasize this to my relatives when enquiring about immigration attorneys.

NotsonewMary you are quite right there is a lot of information to be found online and we will surely be reading up as much as possible before we take any actions.

Thanks a whole lot for the link too! It is so useful and will be a great resource if we eventually decide to go DIY. I mean the legal fees are not beans at all but we will still weigh all the pros and cons based on our profile specifics before making that decision.

Just make sure you do your research thoroughly before settling for any specific lawyer. I do know that most lawyers that know their onions are very thorough and they leave no stone unturned. Also, lawyers tend to work with evidence/exhibits a lot!, which is exactly what USCIS wants. Be prepared to provide adequate supporting evidence for all of your documented achievements.

Good. Examples of attorneys for industry professionals are

https://www.hooyou.com/
https://messersmithlaw.com/

There are others but I know industry professionals, engineers, accountants that have successfully used those two above.

You are right sis.

Another information to share with people going through attorneys is that mode of operations of the attorneys are usually different for this route.

Some attorneys help their clients draft recommendations letters while some don't.

Some attorneys require clients to write own cover letters to them to describe each of the criteria you want to claim among the 10.

Folks should consider this also before retaining an attorney.

You got an interesting profile. It will be very easy if you're able to get an employer. I never had a degree when I got an employer. The EB2 also offers you the option to self petition which will waive the labor certification. You have all it takes.

The other is good for both 1A and NIW but requires their clients to write recommendation letters and self cover letters to the attorney.

Yes. It's easy if one can get a willing employer to sponsor, and without killing conditions.

But if someone has enough solid achievements, I always advise them go through self petition. By so doing, no employer can take you do yanga or shakara

Those are the 2 sides of the coin. You can always change employers once you have your GC.
