Customer Question
FOR JAMES James hi, not sure...
FOR JAMES
James hi, not sure you remember our conversation of last August. I have a few additional questions regarding the structure to be set up as I am in the process of setting up the US Affiliate in these days.
1. Is there a minimum monthly turnover that the US affiliate must to generate for the 12 months activity prior to requesting the green card??
2. Does the US affiliate have to invoice another US entity for this?
3. Do I have to be physically living in the US for the entire 12 months prior to requesting the green card or can I also be located elsewhere?
4. Can I just use the same address as the US Company address for all my papers and correspondence?Fact is that I was thinking of setting up the branch and then invoicing the UK mother company from the US affiliate for a specific amount per month/week for 12 months. After that apply for the green card and in the meantime apply for a job with a different employer.If my construction is a viable one, would you be able to help me with preparing all related papers or could you indicate me someone who can?Thank you!

Michelle hi:
more than 34 hours have gone by and, although I have purchased the express service, I still have not received any answer. Is the Justanswer concept still alive or is it fading?Thanks,

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
