Passport Visa for parents - Help please!

Hi everyone! I will be starting my residency in the US in a while and plan to return to my home country, Pakistan, after the residency. I am really attached with my parents and was wondering whether there was any way that they could actually come and live with me for the 6 years of my residency in the US. I know that on a visitor visa, they can come and visit, but does anyone know a possible way via which they could actually come and live with me for 6 years.

My dad is a general practitioner and my mom is a Obgyn. Even though they are not certified in the US, they have enough funds to live in the States without working. My aunt is a US citizen and she has applied for a green card for all of us (F4 category) but that could possibly take 10 years or more. My parents can invest in the US and get a green card through investment but if there's an easier way to come and stay there, like maybe a temporary visa, which allows you to stay in the US for a couple of years then that would be a better choice for them.

I really hope that you guys would be able to help me figure this out. Thanks.

I don't think that's possible. Get an immigration lawyer and discuss your case.
