Format: Paperback
Well organized and written, with just enough information to bring all options to the attention of the reader. Easily read and referenced, and quite comprehensive in coverage. Rare will still be the cases in which one can really do away with counsel, but it will make one a better informed client. I particularily liked inserts on new legislation and policies (helped me guide my own process), explanations on rights and obligations associated with each status, and the exhaustively explained steps and paperwork associated with the process. All editions so far have had upgrades to stay current with the ever changing policies and INS quirk "du jour". Although I do own several older editions, I typically make a point of getting a new edition every couple of years, in order to stay current on my rights as a foreigner in the US.

Format: Paperback
If you just read this book, it seems very helpful. The language is simpel, and the authors know what they are talking about. But the information regarding some forms is insufficient. An example: about form G325A the book says: "The questions are self-explanatory." But I have no idea what to fill in at "File number A-". File number? Same form says "Submit all four pages of this form." But the form in the book contains only one page. If you visit the INS website, you'll find four pages. But the INS nor this book explain what to do with two of the four pages after you filled in one for yourself and one for you relative. It would be nice if people who bought this book, got an opportunity to ask these simple questions on Nolo's website, but that doesn't seem possible. I'm afraid I need an immigration lawyer after all.

This is the best book ever that deals with US immigration. It is like a cookbook very easy to use step by step. The book classify all immigration cases. For a particular case, the book provides a summary of the case, solution, approach, how to file, and the time-frame to complete the case. I have read the 5th edition. It is great. I can not wait till the next edition (6th) comes to buy it for myself as a valuable reference.

This book has been invaluable in dealing with my family's immigration needs. It gave great assistance in bringing both my parents and my grandparents into the country legally, without having to spend too much time with legal aid lawyers. My community has many people requiring this help and I have passed this book along to them. Thanks for this guide.

I was so pleased when I stumbled across this book in my local library.

U.S. Immigration Made Easy is a godsend. It honestly has everything you'd ever want to know about every type of visa out there. It's all here, in black and white, and not in confusing legal mumbo jumbo. There is a section on each visa and its process, and at the end of each section there is a checklist with all the documents you would need. There is even an appendix of tear-out forms you can actually use. How convenient!

Organized, easy to read, and easy to understand, this book truly makes the tedious and frustrating process of immigration seem more doable and less overwhelming. Highly recommended.

If you buy the paperback edition, you will receive the new, 2011 ed. of a book which cites laws that change almost daily. The Kindle edition, however, is an old edition, citing laws which are no longer applicable to the immigration process.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is well-written, like all of NOLO's books. So if you want to attempt applying for legal US status, this is a good way to find out more about the process. In the end, though, I think this book only reinforces the horrible tangle of US immigration and how difficult it is to navigate those waters. It explains enough to make you want to go out and get a lawyer!!

1. First, the title is misleading. I understand that they want to sell books, but there is nothing about US immigration that is "easy". And this book won't help you if you are already in the country without papers. Just move on.

2. Second, NOLO excels at simpler legal matters, like how to fight a traffic ticket, or how to be a better landlord. Immigration is a much tougher beast. I'm not sure that any book can really be comprehensive enough to do the job.

3. I think that Nolo needs to be a little more forthright about the fact that this book will not help the majority of people that are trying to obtain legal status, and even those who are here legally (like students) probably won't be helped by this book.

4. The number of glowing anonymous reviews is suspect, although it is possible that the posters are posting their reviews anonymously because they are afraid that somehow someone will be able to trace them. I have found that immigrants tend to be a suspect bunch (my parents are a prime example!).

Now, despite all of these shortfalls, I still feel that the book deserves 4 stars. Why? Because Nolo's book is still the best one out there. I can't recommend any book that's better, which is unfortunate. So, if you are looking for a book on Immigration, buy this one. The Nolo press book on Fiancé visas is the best on the market, too, if your particular situation applies.
