Immigration Green Card

An immigration Green Card holder is a foreign national granted permission to live and work in the United States on a permanent basis. Most individuals who receive permanent resident cards are sponsored by family members or employers based in the U.S., though immigrants can also receive permanent status as refugees or through other humanitarian programs.

The application process, already a complicated procedure involving numerous documents, fees and government forms, has grown even more complex in recent years as world events encourage heightened scrutiny for immigration Green Cards.

In other words, one mistake in your documents and you may miss your chance to travel and live in the United States.

Using an experienced lawyer knowledgeable about the system has become essential to successfully navigate these requirements. And they’re not always easy to understand or execute.

For example, part of the Green Card process demands that applicants submit to a medical exam, which includes a report from a government-approved doctor along with certified documentation of previous vaccinations. Tracking down those documents and getting a medical exam from the right doctor can be both frustrating and time-consuming — and that’s just a small part of the process.

At Vaksman Khalfin, we know the Immigration Green Card process inside and out. Here’s what we can do:

  • Help you pursue an “Adjustment of Status” (AOS), which allows you to secure an immigration Green Card without ever needing to return to your country of origin.
  • Help you gain permanent residence as a recent college graduate, through a work permit, an H-1B temporary work visa, and more.
  • Sort through the complexities of employment-based visas, which can include documenting professional qualifications, verifying job offers, and demonstrating that applicants won’t displace current American workers.
  • Pursue family-based Green Cards, including those through marriage, adoption, in-law status and other immediate relatives.

Getting your Immigration Green Card is definitely a legal maze, but our experienced attorneys can help you navigate it. Contact us to find out how we can help.
