Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I am a Canadian, 66, seeking a Green Card. All my siblings, and other relatives, excluding my mother, 86, are American citizens. Nobody wants to sponsor me for a green card, because they would be responsible for my medical expenses, should I fall ill.
Here in Canada; where I run my own company, the Future Computing Institute (FCI), www.FutureComputing.ca , I get pensions, free health, medical, dental, and prescription-medication; and numerius other seniors benefits, such as RGI, Rent Geared to Income, Ontario Housing Stability (OHS) subsidy. Many Amaricans have immigrated to Canada. Since I worked 10 years in the United States, I also qualify for 401K benefits
Although one cannot get all such seniors benefits, except Medicare; in the US, I would personally like to at least get a green card, for a start.
Can you help with this,
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I cannot represent you as your lawyer, but I can answer questions. What kind of help do you need? What is your question?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I just need direction with this project to obtain a green card.
Since my siblings cannot sponsor me, what other options do I have to obtain a green card? Please advise me, anybody?
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

So just to clarify, you already have at least 40 quarters of employment in the US, as defined by the Social Security Act?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
