For anyone wanting to live and settle in the United States, a green card is invaluable, giving you the legal right to take up residency in the country. In addition, anyone eligible to do so can start the process of becoming a US citizen, once they have been in the US for at least five years. A green card attorney can also be invaluable for anyone who is struggling with the process or does not understand how it works and what the requirements are.
The Green Card Process
Determining your overall eligibility for a green card is the first step that most attorneys take; this often means checking to see if you can apply for a family based green card. This may be an option for anyone who has a family member, such as a spouse or child already living in the country. An employment-based green card is also an option for anyone who has a particular skill or talent in a given area of work, someone who wants to invest in the US, someone who perhaps wants start their own business. Both of these are possible routes towards being a resident and your green card attorney can advise you and explain the different possibilities.
Keeping up with any recent changes in immigration law and recent regulations is also the responsibility of your green card attorney, as well as making sure you abide by them. You will almost certainly need help gathering documents, completing forms, and filing paperwork – your attorney can help there too. Your attorney will ensure that you have no delays or problems moving yourself and your family to the US, by making sure any deadlines are met.
