What Is A Green Card And What Are Its Advantages?

A green card gives you permanent residency in the United States. Though it is not the same as citizenship, it allows you to legally reside, work, and marry within the U.S. It is also the first step, and an important one, toward earning your U.S. citizenship!

Who Is Eligible For A Green Card?

You can be eligible for a green card through several different avenues. Most commonly, you will have to be sponsored through a family member who is a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., or you can be eligible through your job if you work in the U.S. However, you can also be eligible through other claims, such as if you are seeking asylum or you have been a victim of human trafficking.

Not including applications for family members, there is a yearly limit of 226,000 green cards, and they are distributed based on when each application is filed.

Besides spouses and employees, you can be eligible to receive a family-sponsored green card if you are:

  • An unmarried child of a U.S. citizen
  • The spouse or minor child of a permanent resident of the U.S.
  • The unmarried adult child of a permanent resident of the U.S.
  • The married child of a U.S. citizen
  • The sibling of a U.S. citizen

These spots fill up quickly, which is why you want to work with our Jacksonville Beach green card attorneys as soon as possible!

The Green Card Application Process

The application process for a green card is dependent on some specifics, such as who is sponsoring you and whether you currently reside inside or outside the United States. Generally, however, you will have to complete the following steps:

  • Find out if you are eligible for a green card via family or employee petition
  • File Form I-485 and submit the required documents
  • Go through the interview process once your application is approved
  • You will obtain a green card if you pass the interview
