Who is Eligible to Apply for a Green Card?

Becoming a permanent, legal resident of the United States starts with obtaining a green card that grants you access to renewable citizenship for a period of ten years. Once you possess this status, you must remain in good legal standing for a period of up to five years before you can apply for naturalization. A person may become eligible for a green card through several different avenues:

  1. Marriage
  2. Employment
  3. Family
  4. Investment

In all of the above cases (except marriage 3-5 years), a person must be in good legal standing for five years before becoming eligible for naturalization. Naturalization is the final stage in the process of becoming an official citizen of the United States of America.

As a foreign national, the application process may seem daunting and insurmountable on your own. Don’t lose hope. We are top-rated experts who are well respected in our field. We put our decades of immigration law experience to good use helping folks all over the world, like you, successfully complete their green card application process.
