Key to NIW Success: A Forensic Analysis of Your Achievement
The National Interest Waiver (NIW) is most appropriate for applicants who do not have a job offer but nevertheless excel in their fields of endeavors. We find applicants not familiar with these legal standards have no accurate perspectives of their chances in getting approval. In another word, applicants tend to overlook some of their significant accomplishments just because they don’t understand how these standards are applied practically. Therefore, an in-depth evaluation with a reputable law firm can change the destiny of an otherwise seemingly obscured case and that of its petitioner. This is especially true for applicants whose areas of expertise are in business, entrepreneurship, social science, arts, humanities including education and others.
