On December 28th, 2016 the Administrative Appeals Office issued a decision in Matter of DHANASAR that has changed the landscape for National Interest Waiver cases.   This is of major importance as the National Interest Waiver is one of only two self-sponsored applications and many postdocs, scientists, researchers, and others use this application to obtain Permanent residence in the US.  In order to explain how this decision has changed the landscape, it is first important to understand what the previous standard was. In Re: New York State Department of Transportation In that case the AAO laid out a three-part test: 1 Show that the area...

So, I reside in Washington DC. Recently, my blogging career here with Biocareers has been as productive as the representatives sent by other parts of the country to work in my hometown. To reacquaint myself with the readers of the blog, our law firm works extensively with postdocs, scientists, and...

After a brief summer hiatus, I am back blogging (I hope to your ongoing benefit and enjoyment). My last blog introduced the concept of self-sponsorship for permanent residence and discussed the National Interest Waiver (NIW) category. This time we up the ante and look at the EB-1A, Extraordinary Ability visa...

Many people have heard of the traditional method of obtaining permanent residence in the United States. From a somewhat simplistic standpoint, this is viewed as being ‘sponsored for a Green Card.’ During that process, a sponsoring employer files paperwork  with the Department of Labor and, after that is certified, files...

Over the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day, I found myself in San Francisco for the first time. While there are (so I’ve heard) a multitude of Irish bars and ex-pats in the city to be able to fully immerse oneself in the activities of a traditional celebration, this was not...

The headline isn’t really news I suppose. In all aspects of our life, the better prepared you are, the easier (in general) things are to work through and accomplish. Although I was a little disappointed that when I became a new parent a few years ago that there was no...

While I was never a maths whizz, I used to do okay with numbers. I didn’t get to use a calculator until who knows when in school (meaning that I used my brain for day to day problems), I even knew long division, and was able to knock out pretty...

Eleven years ago, when I was contemplating my return to the United States from my home country of Ireland on a J-1 Visa, I don’t think blogging existed (and if it did, I certainly wasn’t aware of it).  Since then, I haven’t undertaken any research, spent any time at the bench,...
