Can I get a green card?

Getting a green card in the United States is the dream of many immigrants because it grants permanent residence status and all the benefits and responsibilities that go along with being a resident. This includes finding legal work, starting a business, getting a driver's license and buying a house. But the U.S. government doesn't grant this permanent residency status to just anyone and has a set number of green cards it issues per year.

There are several ways to be issued a green card:

  • Family based green cards are given if you marry a citizen of the United States, if your children are U.S. citizens or your brother or sister is a U.S. citizen.
  • You can get a green card if you have an extraordinary skill or ability in an area that is of national interest or you hold an advanced degree.
  • Professional and skilled workers are sometimes issued green cards.
  • If you create jobs here as an entrepreneur or an investor, you can apply for a green card.
  • Green cards are issued to some immigrants based on their religious work.
  • The United States also issues green cards to refugees who are seeking asylum in the country because of persecution.

The process of applying for permanent residency can be long, tedious and incredibly complicated, especially for someone who doesn't speak the language fluently or isn't accustomed to the way things work here. In those cases, it can be extraordinarily helpful to have an attorney who knows the ins and outs of apply for permanent residency.
