Green Cards and Requirements

A "green card," or permanent resident card, allows an individual the legal right to work and remain in the U.S. as a permanent resident for a specified length of time, usually 10 years. The green card holder must follow and abide by all visa terms or face possible deportation. Individuals who wish to obtain a green card can benefit from the professional legal services of The Gaston Law Firm, P. A.

There are several factors that can make a person eligible to apply for permanent resident status including their employment, familial circumstances or desire to seek asylum. We take care to stay current on all changes, amendments or new immigration laws and are dedicated to helping green card applicants successfully acquire their lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. Depending on the type of application made it can take months and often years for a green card to be granted. We are committed to doing everything in our power to make your waiting period as short as possible.

A foreign citizen who wishes to gain their LPR may apply on the basis of any of the following qualifications:

  • Family-based immigration submitted by a family member who is a citizen of the U.S.
  • Employment-based immigration through the help of a U.S. employer who submits a labor certification application called a PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) with the U.S. Department of labor. This application will require the help of a knowledgeable and skilled immigration attorney.
  • Being granted a Diversity Immigration Lottery visa.
  • Immigrant "alien investor" status, showing significant financial investment in the U.S.
  • American Indian born in Canada.

Green Card Renewal

For those who wish to renew their green card, they can apply through the appropriate government agency. The immigration laws allow green card holders a chance to apply for U.S. citizenship. It is important to have representation from a trusted immigration attorney during the immigration process including the application and renewal of visas. We can assist clients with applications, interviews, and obtaining citizenship in the United States.
