United States Imigration Law US immigration law is arguably the most complex in the World with fifty-three different types of non-immigrant visas and a number of ways of gaining permanent residence (the Green Card). For many people it is a difficult and lengthy process gaining a Green Card on an initial basis. It is frequently far better to apply for one of the non-immigrant visas and then apply for an adjustment of status to lawful permanent residence. I do not propose to cover every con
