New Year's Immigration Resolutions

Ever look back at your year, and wonder what happened to the goals you set?

You started the year with high hopes. 

In your mind, you’d already won permanent resident status.

You sat down at the dinner table.  You and your spouse talked about getting started. 

The two of you looked ahead – you imagined visiting your family living abroad, taking trips with the kids to Disney World, and earning enough money to justify buying a larger screen television and a new car with almost zero mileage.

Now, it’s a year later. 

And your goal to win a green card has not moved an inch forward.
