OK, thank you very much. Kindly remember to give me a positive rating before leaving this site today. I do not get a salary here, so your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. If that does not happen, it is as if I never worked, which I am sure you agree would not be an ideal outcome. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, in order to help me get credit for doing my job. Thank you!
QUESTION: I want to apply for a green card for her the fastest way what do I need to do?
ANSWER: There is only one way. You need to file form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. It will be pressed within the US and then sent to the national visa center. You will be instructed by the NVC to submit form I-864, Affidavit of Support. She will be instructed to apply for the immigrant visa with the online DS-260.
The affidavit of support requires you to be residing in the US, or to show that you will be taking up residence by the time your family immigrates. You can do that by showing a job in the US and/or residence that you can call home.
She will have to undergo a medical examination and an interview at the consulate in UAE.
Once the visa is issue, she will come to the US and become a permanent resident upon successful entry. She will receive her green card within 2 months.
