Want To Get A Green Card?
A green card — also known as having permanent residency — is an important step to becoming a U.S. citizen. It also allows you to legally live and work permanently in the United States. Getting a green card, however, is not always a straightforward process. The process can vary depending on your unique circumstances, so it is often best to work with an attorney who can make sure you handle each step of the process correctly.

Who Is Eligible?

- You have a family member who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- You have been offered a job in the U.S. or you hold a specialized job
- You came to the U.S. as a refugee or asylee
- Other scenarios
Process Of Obtaining A Green Card

- Seeking an adjustment of status
- Collecting affidavits of support
- Getting a medical examination
