Green Card Attorney

“Green card” is the casual term used to refer to the immigration status of an individual granted permanent permission to reside in the United States, often with their family. Foreign nationals can obtain permanent residence, or their green card, through a number of different bases, including through employment, investment, marriage, family relationships, protection from persecution (asylum), and several others.

When a person applies for their green card inside the United States that application is usually something termed “adjustment of status”. The term for a “green card” application outside of the United States is “immigrant visa application”. These are generally applied for through a U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad, but often the process still initiates within the United States.
