***** Email from Natalia on 12/20/2016
I am interested in purchasing your DIY packages, just want to make certain I purchase the correct one.
I am a old woman on a British passport visiting my family in U.S. My son-in-law is a US citizen. My daughter is a permanent resident. My visitors visa (VWP) will expire soon. I wish to stay permanently in the U.S., and will be supported and sponsored by my family.
The categories under which I can apply for permanent residence are vague and ill-defined, as they do not specifically cover my status as a mother-in-law of a US citizen or even the mother of a permanent resident married to a US citizen.
Please advise what category I fit into and what I may do to obtain either an extension to my visa or permanent residence, so that I do not have to leave the US. If possible an extension of 6 months to one year would be good. My daughter will be eligible for US citizenship next year.

Hello, Customer Service,
Thank you very much for your outstanding website andservices.
I am living in U.S. entered legally a year ago. My son is a U.S. citizen and we have applied for my green card.
I have done my fingerprint and waiting for the next step in the process. I already have received a letter from USCIS to submit some additional documents for the process. By now my visa has expired but my passport is still valid.
Can I make a travel within the United States using my passport? What procedures do I have to follow for my travel?
***** Email from Rashed on 11/28/2016
Dear Customer Service,
Thank you fro your very helpful website. I have a question.
My brother is a US citizen, he has been living abroad with his wife and children for almost 25 yrs now. His wife lived with him in the US and had a green card prior to their decision to live outside the US.
While in the US, they had two children born here in the US, worked here, and filed income tax. They are now considering returning to the US and living here from now on.
They are wondering what they have to do to make sure that both he and his wife can come to the US next year at the same time preferably. They do not have a home here, but will be living with me and I will provide them any support they need till they found employment here.
Any guidance would be appreciated it.

My friend gave me your website and I found it very professional.
I am a US citizen by naturalization. My mom now lives with me and she is holding a B2 visitor visa. One of my brother is abroad and he is only 18 years old, and not married.
Now, here is my question, if I petition my mom for an adjustment of status (Form I-485), can she in the same application include a petition from her toward her child, in order for him to obtain a green card after her application for adjustment of status is approved?
Thank you very much in advance.

I found your excellent website while searching Internet for information. I have 2 questions regarding the Green card application for Siblings.
My sister is a US citizen and she is filing now Green card for myself, my wife and son also included in the application.
1) Is USCIS is stopping the green card processing for sibling?
2) While filing the application form (I-130) shall I produce transfer certificate from my college, instead of my birth certificate?
The reason is Getting Birth certificate from my local administration take time.

***** Email from Chizhikov on 9/28/2016
Dear Customer Service,
I came through your web site and I got interested in your service and do-it-yourself packages. I have 3 questions:
1) My children were less than 21 years age when i filed petition for US visa in 2005 for my family that includes my wife and both children. So will they also be eligible for visa now when my priority date becomes current? If yes, what paperwork is required for it?
2) As my father (petitioner) is not in very good health these days as he has cancer and considering his old age, in case of his death, I fear that my visa petition will be revoked. Now here i should mention that my sister is also a US citizen and can co-opt for me. What paperwork can I do to stay pro-active in case of my father's death?
3) Is there any way to expedite the immigration process on medical grounds?
***** Email from Igor on 9/16/2016
I came to know about your services from your website online from your website.
Actually, my family is in U.S. My 3 sisters are permanent residents in US. My mom-dad recently got Green Card last year and they were being there for more than 5 years.
My elder sister also applied for me along with my parents but since my age is above 21 years so my case couldn't be processed with my parent's case and it's status is still waiting.
I just want to know that, Is there any other legal way with which i can get the US visa? And how much time does it take? My age is 30 years and I have done MS in Computer Science Engineering. Currently, I am doing a job of Assistant Professor in reputed college.
If there is any way kindly aware me about it. I shall be highly obliged and thankful to you.

Dear Customer Service,
I just sent a payment through Paypal and I need this package urgently. Thank you
I am in need of a DIY package to submit a full Form I-130 and a full Form I-485. Please let me know what I can do to receive if there is anything else that I need to do.
***** Email from Dario on 8/5/2016
Thank you for your great web site and very helpful service. I applied for adjustment of status based on my marriage to a US citizen, and I completed my biometrics.
I got a Request For Evidence (RFE) request for initial evidence, they requested for my wife's w-2s and that we did meet the 125% of the poverty guidelines, so we did get a co-sponsor.
Now the problem is, does she have to send an entire affidavit form and all financial documents, as she did before or she just needs that of the co-sponsor, since they already got the one we file before the RFE?
Thank you very much.
***** Email from Millisa on 7/28/2016
My friend's daughter sponsored her from the Philippines. Her daughter became an American citizen about 5 years ago. She has been in the U.S. for 1 year.
My friend agreed to living with her daughter, son in law and their 7 year old son. She also agreed to help care for her grandson, prepare meals, and handle all other household chores. One month ago she was told to leave the home (which she reluctantly did), canceled her health insurance.
She has done nothing illegally wrong and had kept up her end of the bargain. A friend and her family agreed to let her stay with them on a very temporary basis.
What is her sponsor's financial responsibility?
I found your web site extremely helpful. Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.
***** Email from Vijay on 7/13/2016
Thanks for the wonderful information on your website and your previous answering for my questions, but I guess I did not explain it correctly.
When I said he has his I-485 in EB3 category I forgot to mention that along with his application there is a dependent daughter who was 16 at the time of filing and now is 26 years old and not married.
If I apply green card for my parents my sister will have to lose her status, so I was trying to ask if there is a way to quicken the priority date for my dad’s I-485 based on my citizenship.
***** Email from Joelisse on 6/26/2016

Any inputs is greatly appreciated.
***** Email from Ingrid on 6/17/2016
I am a U.S. permanent resident, and recently got married out of U.S. I am currently completing my medicine degree in a foreign country, so I have to stay here for few months. However, I visit US at least once a year during this study time. I have applied for the green card for my husband as we both intend to live in US. And since my family is in US, they have already done the affidavit of support part for us.
I have bought the Complete Do-It-Yourself Package of Green Card Application for U.S. Permanent Resident's Spouse. Our form I-130 got approved and our case is currently at NVC where the document review process is going on.
Now my question is that since I am living out of US, as I am into my final year of medical studies. Will this cause any issue in getting green card for my husband?
Please reply as soon as you can.
Thank you very much in advance.***** Email from Yong on 5/24/2016

***** Email from Girish on 5/18/2016
Thank you very much for answering my previous questions. I am a Canadian citizen with a U.S. permanent green card, which was obtained through marriage to an American citizen. After 10 years of marriage the marriage has dissolved.
Will I still be allowed to stay in the country even after I divorced him? and will it affect when I need to apply again for my green card when it comes up for expiration? Would I be better off to naturalized to stay in the country.
We have been separated for almost 2 years, and I have since met someone from back home in Canada. I do not wish to leave in the United States, and would like to see how I could sponsor my boyfriend/fiancé.

***** Email from Obeidi on 4/3/2016
I want to buy the Complete Do-It-Yourself Package of Green Card Application for U.S. Citizen's Parents. I have a question about immigration for parents.
My brother has US citizenship and wants to apply for green card for my parents. My dad married my step mother after my brother turned 18. Both my dad and step mother are 65 yrs old and we want to bring them to stay with us. Since my step mother is not my birth mom, per USCIS I cannot apply for her green card. How can I apply for both of their Green Card together?
I do not want to seperate them as my step mother has some chronic illnesses - diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure. She does not have children of her own and we dont have any siblings in our home country to take care of them.
Are there any other visa category to show that my parents need to be together at this old age and with us so that we can apply for their green card? She has visitor visa that expires next year. Is there any faster way than waiting for my dad to become citizen and then apply for her? My dad would have to stay in U.S. to get citizenship and She cannot live alone.
Please help - appreciate a lot.
Thank you so much.
***** Email from Wang on 3/25/2016
I became a U.S. citizen and I was not aware that I have to notify the NVC to upgrade the F2A case for my wife and my daughter.
The F2A interview date is scheduled now. they has been waiting outside the U.S. almost 2 years, until her priority date finally became current.
Given that she has an interview date already, do I still need to contact NVC/Embassy to upgrade her case? Will this delay or change my wife and my daughter interview date?
Does my daughter will lose the beneficiary status and then I will have to file separate petition?
Please help thank you.

***** Email from Sameer on 3/4/2016
We need help on the Form I-485 filed for my wife which I married on March of this year, after she entered the U.S. on a K-1 visa. We got married already, and got the marriage certificate from the county registrar office.
I am a U.S. citizen, and I petitioned her as fiancé which got approved and the K-1 visa was issued to her at the U.S. embassy. Her passport was stamped by Immigration officer, but no paper I-94 was issued.
We did not realize that we can and we should get her I-94 from the internet(we have it now). We submitted the I-485 earlier, but I-94 was missing, because we thought that the stamp of entry on the passport with A-number is the "I-94".
Will the adjustment of status of my wife be disapproved because of a missing I-94?
What should we do now? I am more concerned about her I-485 approval.
***** Email from Ananga on 2/28/2016
In my search on google for information, I found your wonderful and resourceful website.
I currently hold an H-1B status and recently got married. I am in the process of filing the Green Card application - Forms I-485 and I-130.
My question is: can I resign my current job immediately after I submit my application to USCIS, or do I have to maintain my H-1B status until my green card is approved?
I am afraid that if I resign my job while the Green Card application is pending, I will lose my legal status in the U.S.
Thank you so much.
***** Email from Zakir on 2/10/2016
Good day Mam/Sir,

What is the fastest way or better way for my soon to get my husband to come here in the US to become a legal permanent resident?
Please answer my question.
***** Email from Amanyu on 1/24/2016
I was looking for details about family-based immigration on the internet and I came across your outstanding and very informative website. Your website was really helpful for me to get an overall idea about the process. I still have some questions and would like to have your opinion on it.
We are a family of four and my sister has Green Card. She will become a naturalized citizen next year. She then wants to sponsor Green Card for me and our parents. My questions are as follows.
1) Our parents are termed as immediate relatives according to USCIS website. How long do they have to wait before getting the Green Card?
2. She wants to sponsor Green Card for me as well. I am not married yet. According to USCIS, the wait times for a sibling from India to get the permanent resident status is huge. It is around 10 years.
3. Can my parents sponsor me for permanent residency after they get their permanent resident status? Is this legal? If that can be done how long do they have to wait after getting their permanent residencies? Please also let me know how long do I need to wait in that case?
Your website has been really helpful in gathering information about this process. It would be really helpful for me if you could answer my questions.
***** Email from Agbor on 1/18/2016
My friend got help from you before for his immigration application, and let me know your services and great web site: www.greencardfamily.com
I am a U.S citizen. I am filing USCIS Form I-130 for my Mom, but my income is not enough. However, someone is going to co-sign the Form I-130 for me.
Do I have to turn in some other paperworks when I start filing them form? Or I have to do another form instead of Form I-130 for my mom?
Thank you so much!
***** Email from Dayadu on 1/6/2016
Dear Sir,You have helped me before and your answers really helped me a lot.
I have several questions: How long does it take for someone married to a citizen to obtain a green card after they have filed for the green card? and can the spouse who has not received her green card yet go to school in America?
Can a green card holder marry an illegal immigrate here in the U.S. but the green card holder has one more year to file for his citizenship? is it okay for them to marry and then wait for the green card holder to file for his citizen and then file for green card for the spouse?
Or will this cause a problem since they are both immigrates in the cause of the filing process after the green card holder had become a citizen.?
Thank you very much.
