Aids for Obtaining U.S. Citizenship and Marriage Green Cards - Boundless

                                                                     

 

Boundless is a website created by immigrants and immigration experts that has compiled lists of resources required for obtaining U.S. citizenship or green cards through marriage.

From the New York Times, Dec. 27, 2017 by Kevin Roose:

"Boundless is a Seattle-based start-up that has simplified the process of applying for marriage-based green cards, an often-frustrating process for immigrants and their spouses. Instead of filling out complex applications, users are guided step by step through a series of questions, and their answers are reviewed by an immigration lawyer before being sent in. The service costs $500 per application, a deep discount from the fees typically paid to immigration lawyers."

From the Boundless website:

"We are a team of immigrants and experts who have struggled with our own journeys through the complex, high-stakes U.S. immigration system. Just like millions of other families, we’ve had to choose between paying thousands of dollars in legal fees or spending months trying to figure out how to do everything ourselves. We knew there had to be a better way. That’s what we’re building, after hundreds of conversations with families, immigration lawyers, and government officials — a trusted partner and guide for your entire immigration journey."
