Helping You Obtain Your Green Card
Most visas are temporary. They allow travelers to remain in the United States for a specified period of time, depending on the purpose of the trip. These are called nonimmigrant visas. On the other hand, when a person immigrates to the United States to live here permanently, he or she receives a green card as proof of “permanent residency” status.
Steps To Take To Become A Permanent Resident
The law provides a number of ways to qualify for a green card. For example, if you have family members who are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, they can sponsor you to become a permanent resident. If you are a minor and one or both of your parents have abandoned you and there is someone in the United States willing to take care of you, you may qualify. Also, a U.S.-based employer can sponsor you to become a permanent resident.
