    Hi all
    I was kind of thinking of living and working in the US for a few years in Horticulture to get experience that is not readily available here.
    the problem is doing it LEGALLY.I assume from reading that its best to have a position offered first then have the company apply on your behalf.
    Any tips appreciated.
    THANKS
    STUART

    took my wife almost 3 1/2 years to get hers. She is still going through paperwork process even after getting it.

    Getting the greencard is not a easy process. You have only three options.

    1. Every year us govt. give away thosands of greencard. They called greencard lottery. Apply every year and wait for the luck.

    2. Your employer have to apply the greencard for you. There are 3 process in getting the process. It might take upt to 5 years to get the greencard.

    3. Another way is find a US citizen and get married to.

    if your sister is here that can help you in the green card process because she and her husband can be a sponser.

    My parents helped with my wifes and mine by being a sponser for us.

    The easiest and fastest way to obtain a green card is to have a relative who is a citizen sponsor you. Your sister in law could probably help, but she might need to have citizenship (???). She would have to sponsor your wife and you would be able to come along for the ride.
