There are several categories of eligibility for a Green Card. A Green Card may be obtained through family, through employment, as a special immigrant, through refugee or asylum status, for human trafficking and crime victim, for victims of abuse, through other categories, or through a registry. Each category requires that specific criteria be met.
While the process of obtaining a Green Card can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate, our attorneys are well versed in each avenue for obtaining a Green Card and walk clients through the entire process. Our attorneys will evaluate a client’s circumstances and accurately recommend which category of eligibility may be available to the client.
Additionally, our team advises clients on whether it is possible for the client to overcome any potential barriers, given the client’s unique situation. For example, if a client entered the U.S. illegally, however is under the age of 21 years old, has a valid juvenile court order finding that the individual is dependent on the court, cannot be reunited with one or both of their parents because of abuse, neglect, or abandonment, and it is not in the best interest of the individual to return to the country of nationality, the client may be qualify for a special immigrant juvenile status.
Our attorneys have numerous years of experience in guiding clients through the process of obtaining a Green Card and overcoming specific barriers that may otherwise prevent an individual from obtaining such legal permanent residence status.
