Miller Mayer attorney David Wilks successfully obtained an approved National Interest Waiver Immigrant Petition for an entrepreneur building his company at a university-affiliated incubator in New York City. The company focuses on the development of medical technology to improve the treatment of sleep disorders. Obtaining a National Interest Waiver entitles the entrepreneur to permanent residence. Because permanent residence options are generally reduced for foreign nationals who run their own companies, entrepreneurs are often left to rely on more difficult green card paths, such as the National Interest Waiver. In this case, the National Interest Waiver not only worked, it was approved without a Request for Evidence from USCIS.
