Lawful Permanent Residence (Green Card)
If you’re looking to build a long-term life in the United States, you will need to get permanent residence (also known as a green card). With this immigration status, you can lawfully live and work here. After you’ve had a green card for a certain period of time, you may be able to pursue citizenship.
At the Bellwoar Kelly, LLP, we’re passionate about helping prospective immigrants and their loved ones achieve the future they dream of. We know how frustrating it can be to deal with immigration issues. With our lawyers working hard on your behalf, you can rest easy knowing your case is in good hands.
Do You Qualify?
There are only a few ways to qualify for a green card. One of the most common pathways is through a family member. Another is through asylum if you’re at risk of persecution in your home country.
The first step in pursuing a green card is determining whether you’re eligible. Our legal team can review your situation and advise you of your options.
Understanding The Process
The process for getting a green card can be extremely complicated. It often takes months or years. What’s more, any number of obstacles — such as a history of immigration violations, undocumented presence in the U.S. or a criminal record — can complicate your case, and some of these circumstances may jeopardize your eligibility.
Getting through the immigration process is a bit like navigating a maze. Without a map, you can easily get stuck at countless dead ends. You may have to backtrack, costing you valuable time.
As immigration attorneys, our job is to see the big picture. We will apply our knowledge of the law to the unique circumstances of your situation, outlining your options for getting through the maze without getting stuck along the way.
