greencard

Summary: The world is taking to doing everything themselves, even when the use of an expert could save them from headaches and costly mistakes.

Just as consumers can file their own taxes using programs like TurboTax, immigrants can now start filling out their green card paperwork alone. SimpleCitizen claims to be able to eliminate the need for costly immigration lawyers.

  
What
Where


The software SimpleCitizen leads users through a series of questions to fill out the immigration application. The process can be reduced down to a few hours instead of taking days to complete. No matter the risk, this seems to be the trend that consumers want; being able to fill out highly complicated paperwork themselves.

Serious enough mistakes on the paperwork can be cause for rejection and require you to file and pay the fees again. The program will simplify the process for some that have simple applications, where for a total of $350, they can get their application done and assessed by an immigration lawyer with a money-back guarantee if they do get rejected.

Just as in filing taxes, there may be circumstances that the immigrant is unaware of that can help or hinder their application that a licensed immigration lawyer would be aware of. With 1.4 million people attempting to get a green card each year in the U.S., each circumstance is unique.
