There are many paths that an immigrant can take toward permanent residency, including:
- Family-based green cards: U.S. citizens and permanent residents can sponsor close family members to permanently immigrate to the U.S. Except for the spouses, parents and children of U.S. citizens, a limited number of family-based green cards are granted each year.
- Asylum: Refugees and asylees are eligible for a green card one year after being admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum.
- Employment-based green cards: Foreign nationals who have been sponsored for a U.S. work visa may apply for an employment-based green card through Form I-485.
- Diversity visa lottery: The U.S. government grants visas to 50,000 foreign nationals per year through the Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery Program. This program randomly selects eligible individuals from eligible countries.
- Adjustment of status: If you are currently in the U.S. as a nonimmigrant, you can request an adjustment of your status to become a permanent immigrant without returning to your home country.
- Consular processing: If you are outside of the U.S. or ineligible to adjust your status, you may be able to obtain an immigrant visa in your home country through consular processing.
Helping You Through the Green Card Process, From Beginning to End
I provide support to individuals through the entire green card process. For example, if a family member files a preference petition for you, you will be given a priority date which indicates your place in line for permanent residency. I will keep an eye on your priority date and let you know when it is time to take the next step. This may take many months. I will stand by your side the entire time.
