Since 8/18/2010, the USCIS has imposed stricter rules with EB-1 applications. Thus, it is essential that you consult with an experienced attorney before you start the application process. There are two part of EB-1 evaluation process:
1. The applicant must meet the baseline criteria for the category; and
2. The applicant must provide evidence to demonstrate that he or she possess
the required high level of expertise for the immigration category.
We recommend that you file your petition as early as you can since by doing so you would have an earlier priority date.
