We get it, we would be curious what this life-saving, headache-sparing, too-good-to-be-true service is too. Find the answers to some commonly asked questions about the Simvisa process.
While we are not a law firm, we partner with independent attorneys to ensure your application packet meets USCIS regulations.
Simvisa gives you an attorney-reviewed application packet but an attorney does not file a representation with USCIS.
Unlike law firms that charge anywhere between $2,000 to $3,000 in legal fees, Simvisa offers a flat rate of $825.
We are a company founded by attorneys and immigrants who have gone through the green card process themselves. Not only do we offer the best price in the market for the value you get, we also believe in a step-by-step guidance approach. You actually speak with an immigration attorney who will go through the application with you.
Simvisa helps you fill out the following forms:
Supporting evidence, well organized for the immigration officer, is included such as, but not limited to, required evidence establishing identity and status (birth certificates, marriage certificates, etc.), bona fide marriage evidence showing a good faith relationship, and financial evidence establishing a qualified sponsor.
The Simvisa process can take anywhere between 14 days to 60 days. Why the range? While our questionnaire is simple, we understand some of the information we ask takes a bit of digging – such as listing out all the places you’ve lived at for the past 5 years and gathering the photos of you and your fiance or spouse together.
Once we receive the questionnaire answers and documents, meet with you to go over your application, it takes us a week to finalize everything and ship you your packet.
Once Simvisa’s work is complete and we send you your prepared application package, you will represent yourself in your green card application journey. A typical application process that gets approved will look like this
About 3 weeks after filing: USCIS sends you receipt notices
About 5 weeks after filing: USCIS send you notice for biometrics appointment (photo and fingerprints)
You go to the biometrics appointment
About 9 months after filing: USCIS sends you your Employment Authorization Document and Advanced Parole (Travel Authorization)
About 8 to16 months after filing: USCIS sends you a notice for your interview
About 9 to 16 months after filing: You attend your interview
About 10 to 18 months after filing: You receive your green card
Please be aware, wait periods change all the time and vary by location. Sometimes the USCIS wants more information before it decides (these are called RFEs, “Requests for Evidence”). If at any point you decide you would want an attorney to represent you along the way, you can ask us.
You can visit the USCIS site to get the most current processing time.
Currently, we are only assisting applicants who are in the U.S. However, you may qualify for a different process. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Simvisa process is for those who are currently married. If you’re planning to marry soon, you can still keep us in mind for when you’re ready to apply for a marriage green card.
To apply for a marriage-based green card, you must be married to a U.S. citizen. Applicants married to a green card holder may still qualify for Simvisa on a case by case basis.
Once you determine your eligibility for Simvisa, we work with you to answer a series of questions that will help us in filling out the forms for your application. We then meet with you to address any remaining questions you have before sending your application to be reviewed by one of our independent attorneys. We then mail you your packet along with detailed instructions on how to file.
