Applying for permanent residency in the United States can be accomplished through adjustment of status or consular processing. Those who get the residence receive a document called a “green card”. The process of getting a green card requires strategy and a fact-intensive analysis. Considering that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) only approves a limited number of visas it is important for applicants to have a knowledgeable team by their side to guide them through the process and protect their interests against potential pitfalls which could harm the application. At the Law Office of Giselle Ayala Mateus PC, we have the resources to provide the strong counsel applicants need to maximize their chances of success.
What is the process of getting a green card?
U.S. immigration laws provide a variety of ways for people to apply for permanent resident status, which is documented by means of a Green Card. A person may be eligible to apply for a Green Card through family, a job offer or employment, refugee or asylum status, or a number of other special provisions.
