A Green Card, a term commonly used for what is officially known as United States Permanent Resident Card, is an identification card issued by the U.S. Government which attests to the permanent resident status of an alien in the United States of America.
A green card may also refer to an immigration process of becoming a permanent resident. The green card serves as proof that its holder, a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR), has been officially granted immigration benefits, which include permission to reside and take employment in the USA. The holder must maintain permanent resident status and can be removed from the United States if certain conditions of this status are not met.
There are various types of green cards which serve specific immigration needs based upon the need of the petitioner.
Being granted a Green Card and renewal of an expiring Green Card is not automatic, as there are important procedures which must be followed and paperwork which must be properly prepared. Seeking the legal advice, guidance and representation of an Immigration Attorney or lawyer may provide you the best opportunity to successfully achieve your goal of being granted a Green Card in the United States.
With each category of a green card on may seek to legally obtain, the steps and general requirements may differ.
An experienced Immigration and Green Card Attorney or Lawyer may help you with all issues relating to Green Card Eligibility, an Adjustment of Status, Consular Processing, and all other issues and procedures you must follow to successfully be granted a Green Card in the United States of America.
