The immigration process in the US has become more complex. Yearly, many Nepalese flee to the USA for immigration but a new place with unknown people and different law of the land makes people uncomfortable to solve their problems. Obtaining a “green card” is the primary goal for any immigrants who want to settle down in the US. The green card indicates the lawful permanent residency in the U.S. A green card holder becomes permanent resident which enables the person to live and work in the U.S. indefinitely and will also eventually allow one to obtain the U.S. Citizenship. But obtaining permanent residency has become more complicated since 9/11, applicants increasingly need help navigating the process. Applicants feel difficulties in facing the legal process for which they need lawyers who can understand their clients. For a Nepali immigrant, it will be easier to ask and talk freely with a Nepali lawyer about their issues. So to help all the Nepalese in the US, here is the list of Nepali Immigration lawyers in the US:
