Testimonial #1 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2017/10/02] client’s I-140 was approved and he wrote us his feedback:
“We found your National Interest Waiver kit to be extremely helpful in putting together our (successful) NIW application. We submitted our case in February 2017 and were very very happy to have it approved 4 months later in June. We hope to have our Green Cards in hand by the end of the year, with interviews (now normal for all employment based Green Cards) scheduled for October.”
“We really appreciated the quick changes made to the DIY kit and the guidance offered on EB2NIW.com after USCIS changed the NIW standard following the Matter of Dhanasar decision in December 2016. We had to change our whole application as it was nearly ready to submit, but the updated package helped us put everything together and our case was approved quickly under the new standard without any RFE’s.”
“We found the DIY kit was very nicely put together and provided a lot of help in not just how to present and format our case for USCIS, but also with how to structure the whole petition. Considering the amount of time and effort saved compared to doing all the research ourselves, let alone hiring a lawyer to do it for us EB2NIW.com’s package represents fantastic value for money.”
“I cannot recommend your service highly enough.”
Testimonial #2 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2014/4/25] client answered survey questions (how is our NIW DIY Kit and free resource blog):
“LOVE it!! We have used the kit A LOT for guidance. Your website is great too!!!, but to me it was really nice to see the whole package you had submitted to get a much better idea of how to do it ourselves.”
”I looked at different forums online – all very confusing with only answers to single questions here and there. So honestly, after I found yours, I haven’t looked much further. I like the way you built up the website. It seems like you’ve done your research very well and you are listing things step by step so it is easy to follow and apply to your own credentials. You are guiding us through the whole process and it has been super valuable to see you full application package, not just as bullet points of what should go in there, but the actual 300+ pages! It makes me more confident in being on the right track myself. And the fact that you got the green card just proved that not only do you have the credentials needed – but you also submitted everything they needed to see. That has always been one of my concerns – what if I am missing some documents that are essential and will be rejected because of that. For that one reason I was really considering a lawyer for this, just to be sure we weren’t overlooking anything.”
“Again, thank you for the service you provide!”
[2015/1/29] client’s NIW was approved and here is a thank you message:
“Thank you – thank you – thank you! Your NIW package and guidelines enabled us to feel confident in filing the I-140 by ourselves and save those ridiculously expensive lawyer fees. It was a lot of work, indeed – but guided by your work we gradually worked our way through it. Obviously some adjustments were needed to fit specifically our situation, but it was really nice to have a good starting point and guide. And we succeeded! Our I-140 was approved and we just now filed the I-485 (again following your guidelines). We filed the I-140 late August 2014 and got the approval notice early January 2015, so the process time has definitely increased compared to when your petition was processed.”
[2015/6/10] client’s overall feedback and summary of the case (processing times):
“We just received our green cards in the mail last week!!! Again, thank you for the wonderful service – it gave us the needed confidence to submit the paper work for both steps of the process without a lawyer.
The full process time for our case was as follows: Submitted I-140 late August . I-140 was approved early January . Submitted I-485 late January. I-485 was approved late May . Received actual green cards in the mail early June.
It is crazy how much the processing time has increased since you got your green cards. So my advice to all your clients is to get going on this asap.
I can attest that the documentation you have described was sufficient for us to get our case approved. I will and have already recommended your webpage for other peers who wish to apply for green cards.”

“Your material will no doubt help me to make this application.”
“With your breadth of knowledge on the subject you should run a advisory service to potential applicants.”
[2014/10/27] this client also wrote:
“I managed to go through the whole lot you sent [NIW DIY Kit] during the week end. Been very busy lately.”
“I have never seen or read anything as organized as this application. There is nothing that you have not done and it is perfect, not 99.9% but 100%. You have researched the whole subject well, have a great understanding of the laws behind, what needs to be included, what is essential and most importantly how to contest the case at hand. There is no better word that I can think of other than to say “BRILLIANT”. It is not a wonder that your application was approved within a month. I can see how efficient you would be in real life and your husband is a very lucky man, to have you beside him.”
“Next I would also like to appreciate you taking the step on not only sharing your experience but also having ALL of the details available to others, which is a great noble thin to do. Very often people don’t do that even for money. The fee you charge is more than reasonable for what you have provided as you had and have spend a lot of time on this effort. Please accept my big “THANK YOU” for making the information available for us. “
[2015/3/22] client submitted his EB2 NIW petition from overseas:
“I hope you remember me. Was one of those who bought your kit and who have benefited heaps.”
“After a lot of pain and spending much of my time I have almost reached the end of the petition. I have used your formats, learnt heaps from you have sent me which I would never have achieved without your help. Thank you.”
[2016/2/5] client wrote that his National Interest Waiver was approved:
“I have good news for you. My petition was approved on the 7th of January. Much of the credit must go to you, for guiding me along through this complex application process. If not for you I would never have understood this whole system and also spent a lot of money on lawyers for no reason. A big thank you for that.”
This client described also valuable details of NIW process when applying outside USA (consular processing). We plan to write a detailed post about his case and share it with you in the future.
Testimonial #4 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2015/6/5] client wrote:
“My name is [Name] I am an immigration paralegal.
Your kit was VERY VERY HELPFUL. I have never done EB-2 NIW visas before and I had my first and only EB-2 NIW case in my life, and you know what? I did it. And I did it only because I had your kit. The case was approved and the client was happy.
The client was a Ph.D. student and specialized in physics. I spent about 70 hours on the preparation of this case and I would never be able to do it on my own if I did not have your kit. I submitted a 20 page supporting letter to the USCIS and later we had a request for Evidence where I filed additional 22 page supporting letter. The total of pages in the case was about 600 (Tables of content, cover letter, letter of support and multiple exhibits). My work was reviewed by my boss and I was provided with a few valuable advises.
Our client used your recommendation letters as examples to write his letters of recommendation. Your recommendation letters are very good and professional. Your book with explanation of the process and what needs to be proved was excellent. I did the shorter letter of support (yours is quite long), but I include an explanation of all supporting documents, what each of them prove.
That was the most exhausting case in my 6-years of immigration practice but I am very proud that I could do it and it was approved.
Thank you very much for your kit.
This was the best purchase that my attorney [paralegal’s boss] made, in my opinion. This kit was worth every penny spent.
Testimonial #5 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2013/10/11] client wrote:
“Alright, you have me convinced. I’ve looked at several different sites, consulted various friends and individuals who have successfully file their EB-2 NIW petitions, and I’ve even sat in on a presentation given by a legal attorney. Even after all that, I have to say, your detailed explanations and knowledge about this process are most impressive. I learned more from reading your blog than I did from the rest. What was most helpful was your discussion of the NYSDOT case and the way you formatted your cover letter. It has inspired me to adjust mine.
Anyway, I went ahead and purchased the kit. I’m hoping it will be more informative than the one from http://www.greencardforphd.com/.”
[2014/2/7] this client also wrote:
“We are in the process of organizing two information sessions for international postdocs at [Name of University] on [Date]. We have invited attorneys and successful postdoc applicants to provide information about the EB-2 NIW petition process. We will also point prospective applicants to your website, which we believe is a valuable resource.”
[2014/12/16] this client announced I-140 approval:
“I just received my I-140 approval notice last night. Looks like the hard part is over!
Thanks for all the advice and for setting up the EB2NIW website. I could not have made it this far without them.”
[2015/5/12] this client shared great news with us (I-485 approval):
“I got the approval notice for my I-485 application today! This time, it only took USCIS 68 days.”
[2015/5/13] client sent final thank you note:
“And thank you for assembling the eb2niw blog. Like I said before, it is the best self-help site on this topic out there. I will always recommend it.”
Testimonial #6 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2015/6/8] client announced NIW approval and sent feedback:
“We have been meaning to send you a message and a huge thank you!! Your NIW DIY Kit/NIW e-book is simply excellent and extremely helpful. The first part of our case (I-140) was approved in January after a very intense process (as you well know!) and we are currently going through the final stage (adjustment of status). We recently received our new employment authorization and advance parole cards, and expect to get the permanent green card within the next few months. Putting a strong application together was quite challenging and took a lot of effort (specially since we were asked to submit additional evidence to satisfy the third NIW criterion!). It was an exhausting process and we wouldn’t have done it without all the great materials and insight you so generously shared through your blog and the DIY kit. You saved as a lot of time and money! and I’d like to commend you for offering this support to others.
I think the kit is very well organized, well explained and very insightful in terms of how to frame arguments and what to emphasize. It definitely gave us critical guidance and structure to organize our application.
So, I have nothing else to say but THANK YOU!”
Testimonial #7 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2016/3/9] client sent us feedback and announced his NIW case was approved:
“I would like to thank the EB2NIW team for help with my application. My I-140 petition was approved without RFE and in a reasonable amount of time. The kit is pretty good and has a well written example of the petition letter. It also has a good write up about the whole process (I-140 and I-485) with description of the common mistakes. I would really recommend it to anyone with a moderate to strong NIW case. They were also quick in responding to my questions, however keep in mind that they can help only with procedural questions and not about the wording of the petition as this would count as a legal advise. You will be on your own in this regard.
I think authors of the kit have applied around 2012-2013. As far as I understand nothing had changed since that time in terms of the wording about the third NIW requirement. I have come across some other NIW kits, so can compare this one to others. This one contained about the same factual material (but much more details), however the word documents in the eb2NIW kit are very handy. You can save a lot of time by just using their formatting and structure. In total, it took me about two month of evening/weekend time. The most time consuming part is to get the recommendation letters and other confirmation letters/documents.
It is definitely possible to do it without the help of attorney. With attorney it is your job to prepare drafts of the recommendation letters and research statement anyway. The $5000 price for putting all of this together seems a bit excessive.
Good luck to everyone.”
Testimonial #8 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2015/5/11] client announced NIW approval and thanked us:
“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful work you did on your website. I bought your kit a few months ago, worked on my petition myself, and today received my I-140 approval with no RFE after about 4.5 months. I owe this one to you.”
“Thanks again for the public service and saving me $6,000.”
[2015/5/12] this client also provided overall feedback:
“Thank you for providing such a wonderful resource for NIW applications. I used your NIW kit and ebook to prepare my own petition without the help of an attorney. The kit covers all the essential arguments one needs to make for a successful application. I am a young researcher and I was always worried that my application would be borderline because of low number of papers and citations. However, with the help of this kit, I managed to successfully argue all three prongs for NIW. My case was approved in about four months without any RFEs. You saved me thousands of dollars and the hassle of dealing with lawyers.”
Testimonial #9 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2015/8/7] client informed us about national interest waiver (I-140) approval:

I am now going begin the process of changing my status by filing out the I-485, together with the Employment Authorization. There is a package in the kit as well which handles these aspect, so I’m good to go.
I would like to thank you for the guidance and advice and also for the guidance kit. The kit has been a blessing to some of us.
It was worth getting the kit, it paid off.

Testimonial #13 (National Interest Waiver approved)
[2017/11/17] client sent us this message about his NIW approval:
“ I used EB2-NIW kit to apply for one last year and It got approved. I took 11 months due to the Dhansar precedent and general slowness in the Nebraska center but I finally got it this week.
I have a PhD in physics from [foreign country], and I’m currently have a joint postdoc in a large state university and a […] national laboratory. I had 7 recommendation letters, 4 of them from independent US and international professors. I had 12 publication and ~100 citations when applying, one of them in Nature.
I want to thank you for the kit you provided, it was worth every penny out of the $99 I paid for it. It saved me $5000 in lawyer fees for the I-140 alone, and a similar cost for the I-485 packages for my wife and I.
I will be forever grateful to you.”

Thank you soo so much to Veronika and her team, I was so lost, I had everything I needed but how to put it together was a challenge. I highly recommend this kit, and believe it not, it not only worked for NIW, it worked for the EB1-A, which is a hard category to get. God bless you and thanks so much again.
