West Columbia, SC asked in Immigration Law for Illinois

Q: Is there a legal way for an Australian citizen to permanently immigrate to the US?

I have a girlfriend in Australia who wants to come to the US permanently to work with me on several internet business adventures. We do not want to marry at this time and she has no family on the states. Is there a path for her to immigrate here? Please let me know.

Thank you

A: Yes. There are several ways for Australians to come over and work on temporary or permanent basis. We will need some additional information on the business and her qualifications in order to establish eligibility. So, contact an experienced immigration attorney to help you out.
