Finding The Right Path To Getting A Green Card For You

Attaining permanent resident status is a goal that many people outside and inside the U.S. aspire to. Permanent resident status is also commonly referred to as having a green card. It is a step toward becoming a U.S. citizen, but it also offers real benefits and security that people may not have experienced before.

With certain exceptions, a permanent resident will not be deported and does not have to worry about securing a visa. For many people, that sense of security is something they have been fighting to attain for a very long time. It can be the beginning of their starting to feel as though they are a recognized part of the fabric of the United States.

Someone who is already here in the U.S on a nonimmigrant visa can secure an adjustment of status to permanent resident, and someone abroad can pursue permanent residency through the following means:

  • Employment sponsorship — An employer may sponsor a skilled worker for permanent residency.
  • Family sponsorship — U.S. citizens or permanent residents may sponsor certain relatives to help them secure permanent residency.
  • Diversity lottery — Every year 50,000 permanent resident visas are made available through a lottery system.
  • Investment — Foreign nationals who invest sufficient amounts in endeavors that create a certain amount of jobs can secure a green card.
  • Asylum/refugee status — If you fear persecution in your home country because of your race, religion, sexual orientation or membership in a political or social group, we can help you pursue a green card.
