Yes, it does! Here is the entire process in a nutshell:
Our software will begin with a set of eligibility questions to set up for your case. Then it will present an overview of your application process. Then it will walk you through the forms, the documents, how to submit, and finally the next steps after submission. The next steps will include a personalized post-filing timeline, case tracking instructions, green card interview tips, and things to do after receiving your green card.
If multiple separate submissions are required for your case, the software will walk you through each submission and what to do between submissions.

Yes, you can! Just install GreenCardHero on the new computer, and your original software license will continue to work. We also make it easy to transfer your data to the new computer.
Consider combining GreenCardHero with a final lawyer review.
A lawyer review is not required by USCIS, and is therefore not included in GreenCardHero. But some applicants may find it reassuring to have a lawyer double check everything before submission. If that describes you, getting a review is fast and easy: After completing your application using GreenCardHero, take it to an immigration lawyer and ask for an "application review". Many lawyers provide remote services if you do not want to visit their office.
Typically, a lawyer will only charge around $500 for a thorough 2 - 2.5-hour review (1 hour for the lawyer to review the forms and documents on his/her own, and another 1 to 1.5 hours to meet with the applicant and sponsor remotely or in person). In contrast, hiring a lawyer to do the whole application can cost $4,000 and two months.
One thing to be aware of: Some online services offer "application reviews", but the people doing the reviews are not licensed lawyers. The qualities of such reviews are not trust-worthy and it is even questionable whether they are legal.
