Many people immigrate to America through sponsorships by close family members. Janice P. Warren, Toronto Immigration Lawyer, can help you get your "Green Card" if you have a close relative who is an American citizen or permanent resident.
How long the process takes may depend on many things, including:
If you are in Canada and you know that this move will be permanent, you must apply for a Green Card through consular processing by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. If you are in the U.S. when you realize that you want to remain permanently, you can file an Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, in order to become a permanent resident.
You will need a great deal of evidence to support your request for permanent residency. The process can take a long time, and there can be strict deadlines. Talk to us first to ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible.
In practice for 20 years, Janice P. Warren has concentrated her immigration law practice on helping Canadians move to the United States and finding ways to make their move as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
