I have been living in the US on my current 5-year R1 visa and have about 17 months left till it expires.
I would like to start applying for a green card based on the fact that I have lived for more than 2 years on an R1 visa.
I have spoken to lawyers and they charge around $5-6000 for the service.
I'd like a lawyers help but would prefer to do most of the work myself and just consult occasionally with a professional for a lesser fee (I applied for my R1 visa on my own.)
Also, does anyone out there have experience with this and could you share some tips?
