The goal of this web page is to give you useful information to help you with US immigration and related matters. Whether your intent is to work, study, invest, live or retire in the US, this web page should be a valuable asset. We will give you general information about common visas. Then we will provide you with a step-by-step checklist to assist you in obtaining the visa you want. We will then tell you how long it normally takes the government to process the paperwork.
Once you are in the United States you will find this web page useful to you too. We will give you information on matters which affect your life such as how to obtain a driver's license in California, how to obtain a U.S. social security card valid for employment, useful tax information related to US immigration, and requirements on who needs to register for the U.S. selective service.
Over the years as an US immigration lawyer I have been asked the same question repeatedly by different people. As an effort to educate people I have written over 100 short question/answer articles for Lighthouse, a popular local magazine in Los Angeles that caters to the Japanese-speaking community. The most recent articles can be found on the FAQ link to help you learn from other people's questions.
