Green card holders, or lawful permanent residents, are those who have been granted authorization to work and live in the United States on a permanent basis. You can become a green card holder in a number of different ways, but most people obtain permanent resident status either through a family member or through employment. You might be able to obtain a green card through family if you are:
In any event, immigration law generally promotes family unity, so if you think you or a family member might be eligible for a green card based on one of the above circumstances, then it is important that you consult with an experienced Immigration Lawyer as soon as possible. An attorney who is familiar with the application process can advise you as to whether a green card through family is possible, and whether your chances of successfully obtaining a green card might be better if pursued through another avenue. Because the process of becoming a lawful permanent resident may take a while, the sooner you consult with an experienced attorney, the sooner you can obtain your green card or get in line for your immigrant visa number.
