Immigration clients often want to know if there are any ways to speed up the green card process for family members.

Well, there is a provision known as cross-chargeability, not commonly known, which can sometimes help immigrants move to the finish line a little faster.

In general, when an immigrant seeks to immigrate, the visa is "charged" to the country of the immigrant's birth.

But there are situations when the visa might be charged to the country of birth of the immigrant applicant’s spouse, who is a family dependent listed on the immigrant's petition.
