    First, a green card is the colloquial term for legal permanent residence. A person who applys for LPR status overseas gets an immigrant visa if approved by the Department of State and USCIS, from the American consulate or embassy. If they apply in the U.S., they apply directly with USCIS and they don't get a immigrant visa, they just get the LPR status approved and adjusted from their non-immigrant status to immigrant status. The green card, or Form I-551, is issued to persons who get the LPR status approved by either an immigrant visa or by approval to adjust status. It is the identity card the alien is required to carry in the U.S. and to use to enter the U.S.

    Now, you cannot avoid the financial requirement to sponsor an immigrant. You will need to prove your financial responsibility either to the embassy or to USCIS if you apply while in the U.S.

    Both take 6 months to one year.

      In addition to the above advice, the value of any assets maybe used toward the I-864 requirement, yours, your family or another who sign the form and assets of the intending immigrant can be used too:
