What are Green Cards?
Permanent Residency, often referred to as a “green card”, is a status conferred on certain foreign nationals that allows them to live in the United States indefinitely. It is “permanent” in the sense that the status does not expire and can only be taken away through a formal process, based on certain types of affirmative misconduct such as immigration fraud or serious criminal convictions.
Permanent residency usually is granted based on a petition filed by an employer seeking to hire the foreign national to perform a specific job on a permanent basis. All employment-based green card cases must go through USCIS at some point, with an EB-1, EB-2 or EB-3 petition, and in most cases also the U.S. Department of Labor, in a process called a labor certification or PERM. Permanent residency also entitles a foreign national to work in the United States and to travel in and out of the United States without seeking additional visas or permissions.
Some individuals can self-petition for an immigrant visa without needing an employer, for example in the EB-1 extraordinary ability category or EB-2 category with a National Interest Waiver. Our immigration attorneys have been successful in assisting individuals with obtaining green cards in the self-petition categories as well as the employer-sponsored process, and we can help you too.
How our immigration Lawyers Can Help You
Our immigration lawyers will help you prepare for the future and advise you on the best ways to meet all your goals. We always take into account our clients’ short-term and long-term goals when advising them on their immigration needs. As mentioned previously, the green card process is highly complicated with very specific provisions. Filing for the wrong category can greatly impact your eligibility for a green card and your future immigration status in the United States. Filing incomplete applications or filing with errors or inconsistencies will get your application delayed or denied. This can, in turn, affect your career and entire future. It is therefore important for you to have a good immigration lawyer on your side that will create customized immigration solutions to best suit your needs.
