Grabbing the Brass Ring ITIPress.org - Donna Scarlatelli is a partner at Bander & Scarlatelli,
P.A., Immigration Law Firm with over 24 years of practice. / Many clients come to us and have been lead to believe that green cards are
hard to get - unless you cheat and marry a U.S. citizen just to get the
green card. Unless you are a professional. Unless you have a unique skill.
Unless you have lots of money. None of these restrictions are true.
Everyone and anyone can get a green card. There are basically only 3
“unless” circumstances: (1) unless you have a serious criminal history,
(2) unless you lie to the Government, and (3) unless you don’t act quickly
enough, wait too long and stay here longer than the Government allowed.
And for some of these three, there are solutions.
The “E” Non-Immigrant Visa ITIPress.org -
P. Tristan Bourgoignie, Esq.*
The “E” non-immigrant visa is based
on a bilateral treaty of friendship and commerce between the United States
and an individual’s country of origin. Philosophically,
the idea behind
these visas (and most others) is that the foreign individual come to the
U.S., invest his/her money, and in exchange for being given a visa, that
they offer some benefit to the U.S., either economically, through
employment, or some other manner.
