My wife and I thought of starting the Green Card process on our own. It was so confusing in the beginning of the process – what to submit and what not to. After a lot of research I found the SimpleCitizen application. I decided to try it after reading the reviews. When I was paying the fee to SimpleCitizen, I was still not sure whether if I was doing everything correctly, so I took the extra step to purchase the $349 premium package (which includes all services). Later, as I was filling the application, it found it to be such a simple and user friendly tool and gained confidence in their services. I received great customer service with any follow up questions that I had throughout the journey (filling the application to submitting the application). They answered my silly questions with patience and sometimes there were little delays, but I understand that it’s not easy to answer each and every applicant’s question at the same time. After filling out and submitting the application, they print everything for you in a neat folder, tell you where to sign, and how to send the folder in a perfect way back to USCIS. Hiring a lawyer can cost $4,000, just for the fee. These guys will help you with your application step by step for just a $350, sometimes for less. I have recommended this site to another friend who will begin the same process soon. SimpleCitizen made my Green Card process "SIMPLE".

SimpleCitizen, we loved your service!! Keep going!! Add more features in the future!!

SimpleCitizen made the whole process of applying for my husband’s Green Card so easy. We were completely overwhelmed with all the paperwork and knowing what personal documents we needed to send along with the completed forms. With SimpleCitizen you pay a flat fee (totally worth every penny), you give them all your information, they let you know what you need to submit along with each form. You give everything to them and then they complete each form and attach all your documents and send you the completed packet. You sign it, add the check and DONE! I was so relieved to have these forms completed and submitted after starring at them for 2 months not knowing where to begin. They are so helpful throughout the entire process and available for questions and concerns. My husband and I had our interview with immigration today and it was quick and easy and he was approved for his Green Card. The man who interviewed us said he had everything he needed in our file and so this made the interview process simple. I HIGHLY recommend SimpleCitizen to anyone applying for a Green Card, immigration, Visa, or any related paperwork. Amazing service for a great fee!

SimpleCitizen makes the immigration process less stressful, more organized, and saves time. My wife and I had a very intimidating and uncomfortable interview with our immigration officer. It caused a lot of stress but SimpleCitizen connected us with real immigration lawyers who took good care of us. Sam, the CEO, himself would also personally follow up with us too and would advise us. With their help, I was able to receive my Green Card. Without their help I would have been far more stressed. I highly recommend using their services. It will save you time, money and they are more than willing to help if things turn out to be more difficult.

Excellent service! Finding the right immigration consultant can be very stressful for anyone, as it requires putting a lot of trust into someone when dealing with such a precise process. I am happy with the level of service and attention to detail by SimpleCitizen. The level of communication was fantastic, and they handled my case with care and utter professionalism. I would highly recommend the use of their services. I found SimpleCitizen to be extremely helpful and informative and always willing to make time when required. I successfully filed my application with USCIS for adjustment of status and waiting for my family GreenCard. Special thanks to Matt for prompt action and reply.

I met the VP of Customer Support, Matt from SimpleCitizen at the Mexican Consulate and he explained to me what kind of services they do. It was so clear and very useful. Now they are helping me on getting my American Citizenship; Matt has been really fast on answering my questions or concerns. It is been a process super professional and they have taken away all my stress and confusion; plus their help has given me more time to focus on other things while they care about having all my paper work organized. I highly recommend their services!. Thanks a lot SimpleCitizen :)

I don’t usually leave reviews, but I felt the need to do so, with SimpleCitizen. My partner had to leave the U.S. last year because of losing the lottery system for a Visa. We tried to hire a lawyer, so he could work in San Fransisco for the job he had worked very hard for, but we could not pull the funds. His friend told him about SimpleCitizen as ‘Turbo-Tax for immigration' and it was SO much cheaper and more simple than doing the process on our own. Thanks to SimpleCitizen we are finally able to be together again next month!!!

I highly recommend using SimpleCitizen to complete applications for Green Cards. I recently used the service and was very very impressed by how easy to use the service is. Filling out their questionnaire is easy and they always have very responsive and patient representatives you can contact via their chat service to answer any questions you have. Once you complete the questionnaire the application arrives by mail and all you have to do is sign it and send it along. The application was very well organized and very thoroughly completed. Using this service gave me a lot of peace of mind and it was definitely a lot easier on the wallet than using an immigration lawyer.

SimpleCitizen is simply awesome! It definitely has my gratitude and respect. The immigration process can be so complicated and tiresome; however, SimpleCitizen has affectively uncomplicated the process and has made it, as their name made clear, Simple. My person of contact, Matt has been simply spectacular. He handled himself with such professionalism and integrity; he was laden with all the information that I needed and if by a mere chance he was unsure he would consult a lawyer that would supply what was needed. SimpleCitizen has saved me thousand of dollars and I am very much pleased with the services they provided me. I am definitely recommending them to those I know who are in need of such services!

Simple Citizen is a wonderful service that truly enables you to apply for immigration services in a precise and clear way. The team is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful in with immigration law and helps you through each step of the way. Me and my family have used them twice for green card applications and they truly stood by us during the entire process until we got our green cards in hand. At the price point they offer, with the service they provide, the professional value is an incredible bargain. Its turbo-taxes but for immigration with your own team of attorneys at your service and support. Very happy I picked up the phone and called them when I started my application

I have never written any review online, but for SimpleCitizen (SC)-a service that helps my American dream come true, a short review won't express enough my journey and appreciation toward SC.

After wasting 4 months trying to figure out the green card requirements by myself, I gave up and started to use Simple Citizen (Sept, 2015) which surprised me on how everything turned out so easy on their website. Needless to say that they have all the documents ready for me to fill out with step by step instructions, they provide all the services (Supporting Document Translation, Immigration Attorney Review, etc.) that could cost me thousands of dollars doing it by myself. It also amazed me of how detailed their service is (printing and shipping the final application that was neatly organized with marked of where I and my husband had to sign, where to place the check and pictures, where to mail the package, etc.).

During the process and even after I submit my application, SC team is always there to answer questions and check on every updates of the application. SC team, especially Sam, was not only very professional and knowledgeable, but also very personal, that gave me so much comfort on this frustrated process. I got my 2-year green card only after over 5 months (Feb, 2016) and now in the process of renewal. I have introduced SC to my friend who also quickly become a permanent residence through its' help. I will definitely continue to use SC in my journey of becoming a US citizen.

Thanks SC for everything you have provided! Thanks everyone for staying til the end of my lengthy post ;).

What an outstanding service. The website is very user friendly, easy to navigate and they offer a free chat service to help you with any initial questions you have. Considering a lawyer can cost upward of $3,000, these guys will help you with your application step by step for just a couple of hundred dollars. Thanks to their great service (Sam in particular) I filed perfectly with no stress or worry for a fraction of what a lawyer would have cost me. Well worth it.

I would recommend this service to anyone. I can not praise the team enough. First off, the online application itself is so simple and easy to use. Step by step, you simply fill in responses to questions and then you can review with support your answers. Once completed, SimpleCitizen sends you a completed professional packet that you send to the government – You have a online copy and a physical copy too. They help you every step of the way from the form to the medical, and once filed they continue the support.

I feel the need to write this review, as my case was a little more complicated and I hit a few hurdles. When I contacted SimpleCitizen, they came back to me immediately with practical support in form of letters, policy, and legal support. At no point was I asked to pay any further or additional costs. I was astounded at the personal support and the ongoing telephone, online, and email support I have received.

Thank you so much! Without you, I would not have obtained my green card. Again, thank you, specifically Sam. You were amazing! More than I could have hoped for when I started the process.

Sam and his team answered my endless questions even till this day. They calmed my nerves and were with me every step of the way. They helped me when I panicked and most importantly they did everything calmly and professionally. If I was upset about something they listened and helped me fix it. They went the extra mile and are still there for me! I am thankful for them! Thank you simple citizens!

An attorney wanted to charge me $3k to do what SimpleCitizen would essentially do for around $350. Of course with an immigration attorney you get other benefits, including face-to-face help and representation at the immigration interview, but I decided to go with SimpleCitizen for the savings. They were always online to answer my questions promptly and provide me with the information I needed. Once they sent me my completed application I took it to my attorney to have them double check it, which cost me around $300. So in the end I saved over $2k.

SimpleCitizen is a serious company and one of the easiest and affordable ways to fill out your immigration paperwork. I highly recommend them!

I used SimpleCitizen to apply for my Green Card, EAD, and Advanced Parole. Dealing with Sam mostly, I found their services to be extremely easy and straightforward. Their responsiveness to my questions were incredible. I submitted my application and received all the paperwork from USCIS as expected. When the time came for me to renew my EAD, I contacted SimpleCitizen again and within a day, they sent me the completed forms to submit (without any additional charges).

Today, we had our immigration interview. It was far less stressful than we had imagined. Our case officer said she has never seen a better put-together package of supporting documents.

I can't recommend them enough for making a tedious and arduous process so easy. Thanks!
