Green Cards

Lawyers Helping You Obtain A Green Card

A green card is issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and allows the holder authorization to live and work in the United States. The most common means of obtaining a green card are:

  • Family — Being an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen, a green card holder or someone who is admitted to the United States through special category status.
  • Employment — Through an offer of permanent employment by a company, investment in a company that will create jobs, or through self-petition as an employee with extraordinary ability.
  • Refugee status or asylum — If you or a family member has been granted asylum protection and that person has been in the United States for one year and continues to meet the definition of an asylee. Refugee status is similar to asylum, only the petitioner is outside of the United States when the petition is filed.
