How to Get A Green Card in New York
There are three major ways and a few alternative ways that you may be able
to qualify for
permanent resident status in the United States:
Green Card Through Family
Do you have an immediate family member who is a U.S. citizen? Do you have
a family member who is also a green card holder? You may be able to qualify
for a green card through family. Other people who might qualify for a
green card through their family include family members of U.S. citizens
filing into a preference category and family members of individuals in
immigrant "special categories" such as VAWA.
Green Card Through Employment
You may be able to qualify for permanent residency by way of a job. If
you have received a job offer from a legitimate U.S. employer or you qualify
as an investor, a self-petitioner or fall into a "special category
of jobs" then you may be able to qualify for a green card through a job.
Green Card Through Refugee Status or Asylum
While more rare than qualifying for a green card, some individuals may
be able to petition for a green card through refugee status or by way
of asylum. If you would like to learn more about refugee or asylee status,
you can visit
USCIS or discuss with our firm directly.
Some alternative ways to obtain a green card include the diversity immigrant
visa program, classification as a special immigrant juvenile and by way
of the legal immigrant family equity act. Visit the USCIS website to learn
alternative methods for obtaining a green card.
The Green Card Application Process
There are a variety of different green card categories, all with different
steps and procedures that must be followed in order to ensure a smooth
immigration process. One of the most basic requirements that is necessary
for all types of green card categories is having an immigration petition
filled out on your behalf. This petition (Form I-140) must not only be
filled out correctly and filed, but approved before a person can qualify
for a green card.
An immigrant must also be admissible to the United States. Some individuals
with serious health issues, criminal history or who pose a security concern
may be determined inadmissible. There must also be visa availability.
While all immediate relatives of U.S. citizens will have a visa available
to them, other non-citizens may have to wait for a length of time determined
by your priority date.
