Question
Would my mother, being on social security qualify as a sponsor?  Can you give me a rough estimate on your cost? He has no criminal record, or anything that would jeopardize in any way.

In order to get him a green card, you will need a financial co-sponsor to file an I-864 form and suporting documents. Having a lawyer makes the process smoother. Let me know if you would like to hire me to process the paperwork.

Regards,

Robert

Answer
No - it needs to be friend or relative who can submit their most recnt tax and job letter with proof of Green card or U.S. citizenship.

Generally, for a marriage green card case I charge $2500 plus the filing fee of $765. I ask for half the legal fee as a deposit and the rest when he gets his interview date.

Regards,

Robert
