Queens Green Card Attorney

Do you need a lawyer to obtain a green card in NYC?

Obtaining a green card is how to become a legal permanent resident in the United States. If you are searching for trustworthy legal representation when it comes to getting your green card, contact a New York City immigration lawyer at Musa-Obregon Law PC. There are numerous ways that you may be able to qualify for a green card, and our team of skilled attorneys can help you find the best option for you. Dealing with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can be difficult and stressful at times. That is why our firm is here to help.

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 more about 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.
