When navigating the immigration system, most people are forced to choose between expensive legal services and wading through the process all alone. By combining the knowledge of experienced immigration attorneys with easy-to-use, online technology, CitizenPath created an affordable option for individuals to prepare family-based immigration forms correctly.

The online process facilitates the preparation of green card applications, citizenship applications, document replacement, and other immigration benefits typically requested from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

CitizenPath co-founder and chief executive officer Russ Leimer said “It’s a great honor for our team to work on something that actually benefits people.”

The company provides a unique online experience that enables users to navigate the immigration process and receive instant feedback if there is a problem. Conditional logic presents questions in an intuitive order. Tool tips, diagrams and explainers provide more in-depth, easy-to-understand information on topics or questions that may arise during the process. Then, software looks for inconsistencies or answers that may create complications or eligibility problems.

Anonymous guests can try the service before payment. Getting access to the ready-to-sign PDF and customized filing instructions requires users to pay for the service. Paying customers are protected by a money-back guarantee. If USCIS denies a form prepared through the platform, CitizenPath refunds the money spent on the service and all directly related USCIS filing fees.
