Help with the Green Card Process

A green card allows immigrants to live, work, and stay in the United States on a permanent basis. It does not provide you with citizenship, but having one secures your stats as a permanent resident of the U.S. Unfortunately, the green card process is rarely straightforward. The laws surrounding green card application were created both to help immigrants who want to reunite family members, but also to keep out people who have low job prospects or pose a threat to national security. As a result, the laws are an odd combination that attempts to both benefit and hinder hopeful immigrants.

You can go through the green card application process by yourself, but if you are having difficulty or need helping understand how the green card works, the knowledgeable immigration attorneys at Hope Immigration in Marietta are here to help. We can guide you through the application and make sure everything is in order so that you can obtain permanent residence in the U.S.

Green Card Eligibility

There are many ways to obtain a green card and become a permanent member of the U.S. There are many circumstances in which you may become eligible for a green card.

You may be a candidate for a green card if:

  • One of your immediate residents is a U.S. citizen
  • You have a job in the U.S. that requires two years of training/experience or a higher degree
  • You are a member of a religious group coming to work for a nonprofit organization affiliated with your faith
  • You are an asylum seeker or refugee who has been in the U.S. for at least one year
  • You are a human trafficking victim with a T nonimmigrant visa
  • You are the spouse of an abusive partner who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident

This is not a complete list of all green card eligible candidates. Visit the USCIS website for a complete rundown of green card eligibility categories.

Why Apply With an Attorney?

The green card process is rarely straightforward. Hundreds of people are applying for green cards every day, and the people in charge of reviewing the applications are often overworked and sorting through mountains of paperwork. Any mistake or abnormality in your application could delay the process or result in outright rejection. Applications have even been known to go missing after their submission from time to time.

When you hire one of our Marietta green card attorneys, we will help you fill out the application and keep copies of all the important documents. We have contacts in the immigration offices who we can reach out to when an application is rejected or goes missing. Keep in mind that these employees are handling numerous tasks every day, and often receive inquiries and complaints from applicants. It’s easier to get answers when you have someone who has a relationship with these employees and can quickly get the information you need.
