You can obtain a permanent resident status in the United States, commonly known as a green card, through family, marriage, employment, political asylum, or other means. This green card will allow you to live and work legally in this country. It will also allow you to travel in and out of the country. The process of obtaining a green card can be very competitive as the number of registration cards issued by the government each year is limited.
If you’re looking to become a permanent resident in the United States, call The Law Offices of Jonny Kousa, P.L. to discuss your options.
There are different ways in which families can come to reside in the United States:
Who Qualifies for a Family Visa?
A U.S. citizen may bring his or her foreign citizen fiancé(e) to the United States with a non-immigrant (K-1) visa. The marriage must take place within 90 days form the day the foreign born fiancé(e) arrives in the U.S; otherwise, the K-1 visa will automatically expire and the foreign citizen could face possible deportation or other legal consequences. Once the parties are married within 90 days, then the foreign citizen will apply for adjustment of status to a Legal Permanent Resident (LPR).
