It's Lottery Time Again!

Posted on Tuesday, September 20, 2011

diversity lottery green card visa immigrantWe are pleased to announce the arrival of the 2013 Diversity Visa Lottery!  Entry into the lottery begins at noon on Tuesday October 4, 2011 and ends at noon on Tuesday November 5, 2011. Persons currently waiting for priority dates to become current may wish to enter DV2013, since this application does not conflict with a pending case and may be processed more quickly.

The purpose of the diversity visa lottery program is to diversify the U.S. immigrant population by granting permanent residence to aliens of countries with a low rate of immigration to the U.S.

For 2013, 50,000 diversity visas will be available. 

Immigration Law Associates, P.C. is ready to assist you and your family members in applying for the DV 2013 program. For a nominal fee of $100, our firm is offering an initial consultation with an experienced immigration attorney who will provide a complete DV 2013 assessment, including:

 §         Eligibility and other considerations for DV 2013 applicants, and how the DV 2013 aligns with your overall immigration strategy;

§         Preparation and submission of your DV Lottery application, including digital photographs (applications for additional family members $75 each);

§         Follow-up consultation for lottery winners and non-winners.

Please note that if you are not eligible for the lottery, we are happy to prepare and file an entry on behalf of a relative or friend abroad.  Please call for a consultation at 847-763-8500. Current clients, please ask about a special discount for preparing your personal lottery application.
