Immigrant Visas Lawyer NYC

Immigrant Visa Categories in Queens and NYC

An immigrant visa is also referred to as a green card and grants you permanent residence in the United States. This comes with most privileges citizens enjoy, save some such as the right to vote or unlimited restriction regarding your time in and out of the United States. You are able to live and work permanently in the county as soon as your immigrant visa is issued. A Queens and Manhattan immigration lawyer from our firm can help to determine whether or not you qualify for immigrant status and assist you through the application process.

Green Card Qualifications

The ways in which you may obtain a green card for permanent residency in the U.S. include:

  • Family relationships. If you are related to a United States citizen or Legal Permanent Resident (LPR), you may qualify to immigrate based on this connection. Spouses, minor children and unmarried children over 21 years of age are allowed this privilege under family immigration, requiring all necessary paperwork is correctly submitted and processed. Parents, siblings and fiancés may also enjoy this privilege in certain circumstances.
  • Employment immigration. Certain jobs may allow you to obtain immigrant status.
  • Refugee or asylum status can lead to you being granted permanent residence.
  • Certain special adjustment programs. These are very specific, however, you may qualify, for example, if you are an informant, were born to a foreign diplomat in the United States or fall under certain other categories.
