The Help You Need to Obtain a Green Card

When an immigrant is given a green card, it means that they have been granted lawful permanent resident status (LPR). The "green card" refers to the identification card given to LPRs, which is, as you might expect, were initially colored green. However, obtaining a green card is not a simple process. Since the U.S. only grants a certain number of green cards each year, the application process is quite competitive and full of potential pitfalls which could cost you favorable adjudication of your application. Seeking assistance from an immigration lawyer in San Diego can improve your chances of being approved by ensuring the application you submit is complete and proactively addresses potential pitfalls. At Jacobs & Schlesinger, we can provide you with the best legal strategy for your application given your specific circumstances.

Helping You Make LPR Status a Reality

For most individuals, once someone has been granted LPR status, it lasts for 10 years before it needs to be renewed. LPR status also provides protections against deportation in most circumstances. There are a number of circumstances which may make you eligible to apply for a green card. For example, if you have a family member who is a permanent resident, they may be able to sponsor your application. You can also receive a green card through employment, including self-employment and through your own business.

Eligibility factors for LPR status vary based on the avenue through which you apply. We can work with you to determine which one is right for you given your specific circumstances and give you information regarding current government application processing times for each available route.

A few other approaches to applying for a green card include:

  • Obtaining refugee/asylum status
  • U visa and VAWA status
