About Us

Our Vision:

To be the most complete, accurate and timely green card lottery reference available.

Our Goals:

To provide the most relevant U.S. immigration news and essential publications to help illuminate and solve global migration and related humanitarian problems as we continue to promote the U.S. Diversity Visa Program.

Our Values:

We support an economically viable, compassionate and comprehensive immigration reform platform that addresses both internal and external causes of mass migration, protects our borders, and recognizes the special place immigration holds in American culture and history.

Background. Creative Networks was founded as a micropublishing company in 2003 in Santa Barbara, California by J. Stephen Wilson to promote Win the Green Card Lottery! by Marybeth Rael and J. Stephen Wilson. Marybeth was the first to recognize that green card lottery applicants had no single place to get all the information needed to successfully enter the lottery, navigate the ever-changing USA immigration system and get a green card. This annual "how-to" guide explains exactly how to apply for the USA diversity visa lottery and avoid problems while adjusting status in the U.S., or applying for a U.S. immigrant visa abroad. No other publisher even attempts to keep up with the yearly, often last-minute changes to the U.S. Diversity Visa Program.

In 2004 we expanded to include a growing library of free Immigration Reports. We started reviewing green card lottery web sites in 2005 in response to complaints about some services. Green Card Lottery Service Ratings are now available annually. Please note that is not affiliated with any U.S. government organization.

In 2013 we added links to the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services websites to help potential immigrants find and get Free Immigration Forms and Free Visa Forms in response to complaints that some were paying non-government websites for the same forms that are offered for free by the government. We also organized the links for easy navigation.
