GREEN CARDS, CITIZENSHIP & WORK PERMITS

In addition to certain employment-based petitioners, Permanent Resident Cards (colloquially referred to as “Green Cards”) are available for specified family members of United States Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents. Additionally, certain classes of immigrants, such as certain juveniles, victims of specified crimes, and those who have been granted asylum may be eligible to obtain Lawful Permanent Residence without a family member’s petition.

VISAS & CONSULAR  PROCESSING

There is a distinction between immigrant and nonimmigrant visas. Nonimmigrants enter the United States for a temporary period and are restricted to activities consistent with their visa. Unlike immigrants, they are less subject to numerical restrictions and more likely to obtain waivers of inadmissibility. On the other hand, immigrant visas are typically provided to those who intend to remain in the United States. It is very important for those who intend to remain in the United States to enter with an immigrant visa to prevent a later finding of fraudulent intent when that person applies to adjust his or her status.

DEPORTATION DEFENSE

The term “deportation” was changed to “removal” in 1997, but the effects have remained largely the same. Removal from the United States often means permanent exile from one’s family and friends. The detention and removal process involves navigating the procedures and policies of several administrative agencies and complicated immigrant laws and regulations.
