New Bern Green Card Attorneys
Seek Permanent Residency
Many foreign nationals seeking a new life, a business opportunity, or a new home for their families pursue a green card, which grants a person permanent residency in the U.S. As a permanent resident, you enjoy many of the same benefits of a citizen and do not have to worry about a visa expiring.
Many foreign nationals seek a green card because:
- You can stay in the country indefinitely without having to obtain or renew a visa
- You can work at any job in the country
- You can freely travel in and out of the country (as long as you have your green card with you)
- You can bring family members into the country through certain family-based visas
- It is an important step towards citizenship
If you are seeking a green card, let The E.A. Wood Law Firm help you. We can guide you through the process and ensure that every step is completed in a timely fashion. The process can be extremely complicated, so it is wise to have a competent and knowledgeable immigration attorney by your side. Our green card lawyers in New Bern serve clients in Craven County and around the world.
Green Card Basics
A green card is a step up from an immigrant visa but does not grant a person citizenship. With a green card, you are not considered a visitor – instead, a permanent resident of the U.S.
Green cards can be:
- Family- or marriage-based
- Asylum or refugee-based
- For the victims of abuse, human trafficking, or crimes
Certain categories require sponsorship from a U.S. citizen or permanent resident – this could be an employer, a family member, or a fiancée.
How to Apply for a Green Card
The process of obtaining a green card can be complicated and arduous. You will have to complete all paperwork properly, submit extensive documentation, and complete interviews.
There are a few different avenues you can take to get a green card. If you are in the United States on a visa, you can apply for an adjustment of status. This process is done domestically, so you will not have to travel back to your home country. If you are currently living outside of the U.S., you will have to apply through consular processing. This involves sending your application to a U.S. consulate or embassy in your home country.
