I believe this book may be of interest to many readers. First of all, it explains how visitors from abroad can legally prolong their stay in the USA. It's possible to apply for an extension of one's visitor's status without leaving the USA. And this book guides well through this procedure.Secondly, those who are interested in applying for a green card, should find the most suitable category if they want to succeed. The book describes qualifications and outlines the application process for each of them. Many people don't know that they may be inadmissible for one or another reason even if they otherwise meet all the green card applicant requirements. Someone already in the US, and still may not be allowed to proceed if he or she falls into one of the inadmissible categories - as a violator of immigration rules in the past or for health reasons, for example. Some people find this out only after passing a medical exam. But you may want to learn about the regulations in advance. The book covers this issue in detail, including who and how can apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. Another sensitive chapter is on cancellation of deportation. How and in what cases this may be done...Also, you'll find some important information on how and who is eligible to claim status as a refugee or political asylee.In all, I think the book is pretty informative and filled with practical advice. It's also easy to read and understand.

An Excellent Guide to Getting A Greencard

This book was the most thorough of the 10 or so books available: it had been updated in Nov 1999 by a professor, and it was laid out in an extremely user-friendly fashion.I used the book to educate myself about the process of petitioning for my husband. We were able to hire an excellent lawyer, and ask her good questions. I think our preparedness for our consultation convinced the attorney to discount our legal fees by 25%. The book has some unexpectedly funny side-notes, such as a grey box on the secrets to a lasting marriage which made the book enjoyable to read.I found it to be a thorough guide, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs solid, up to date and helpful information on the long process of applying for a greencard.

This book was extremely helpful

I used a previous version of this book as a reference when I applied to get my husband a green card. It was very helpful, as the explanations and instructions are detailed and clear. Although my husband's situation was somewhat difficult, I felt confident enough, with this book as my guildline, to do everything without the help of a lawyer (which, as those of you in a similar situation know, can be very expensive).Through my experience, I also have found that the anecdotes and random advice (such as how to present one's self in the interviews and how to deal with the long waits at the INS offices) were right on the mark.
