The United States is not just a dream. Plan correctly and make it happen.

Asking how to live in the United States is very broad. Everyone has their goals, desires, and preferences. The reasons why Brazilians want to live in America range from the current lack of prospects to the desire for new opportunities in life.

Current research shows that young people between 16 and 29 years old increasingly express the desire to immigrate, with one of the main destinations being the United States. This disillusionment with the country is due to a lack of productivity, inequality, and the political situation. Some still have the desire but, at the same time, are not sure due to bureaucracy with documentation and financial challenges, especially with the exchange rate from the Brazilian Real to the U.S. Dollar.

The much-desired “better life” is also leading entire families to leave the country in search of a better future for their children, mainly.

But how to reach your destination, achieve your goal, conquer your target? It requires a laborious journey that will demand patience, knowledge, objectivity, kindness, and persistence.

Firstly, it is necessary to identify the qualification. There are more than 180 visas in the United States’ immigration world. According to lawyer Ingrid Domingues McConville, with 28 years of immigration experience, with good planning, it is possible to outline an immigration strategy suitable for each person or family. Often, a person thinks they are eligible for a certain type of visa, and when analyzed meticulously, it is discovered that the qualification leads to another path.

With a good conversation, good guidance, helpful tips, and proper direction from an immigration lawyer, it is possible to plan your move to the United States. Even if a person is not eligible at the moment, they can prepare, plan, and schedule themselves for immigration. Of course, it takes time, but if done well, it will be worth it, worth the effort to achieve the long-desired opportunity for a life change.

“The American Dream” has already become possible for many people. Just follow the correct steps, one by one, and the path will be paved until the triumphant arrival.
