How Does a US Green Card Work?
A person who holds a green card in any state is a permanent resident who has been granted governmental permission to live and work on US soil permanently. Green cards must be kept in good standing to remain valid and must be renewed every ten years. Renewal requests are not accepted until six months before the expiry date. You are eligible to apply for a green card in the following situations:
- Through marriage
- Through family
- For business
Once you have obtained your card and have maintained good standing, you are eligible to apply for naturalization after a period of three to five years. The length of this period depends on which type of green card you hold. Our qualified staff can explain this part of the process in greater detail during a consultation with you.
