Establishing permanent residency in the United States usually begins with a visa petition from a spouse, relative or potential employer. This sets forth your reasons for requesting a green card. From there, you will need to fill out an application. We can ensure it is accurate and appropriately detailed to give you the best chance of acceptance. Our attorneys have the background to estimate how your application will be handled based on the type of petition, your individual attributes and the number of green cards available to citizens of your home country. Depending on your circumstances, the entire process can be quick or take several years to complete, but we will work toward a positive resolution as promptly as possible that accomplishes your goal: gaining the rights, benefits and privileges of living here on a permanent basis.
