Los Angeles Lawful Permanent Residence Status/Green Cards Attorney

Permanent Resident Card
Permanent Resident Card

Lawful permanent residence status signifies the legal authorization from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services (USCIS) to reside permanently in the U.S. as an immigrant. Such individuals may also be known as:

  • Permanent Resident Aliens
  • Resident Alien Permit Holders
  • Green Card Holders

It’s essential to note that lawful permanent residents of the U.S. are not U.S. citizens. They must undergo a distinct process and pass an examination to achieve U.S. citizenship.

To be eligible for lawful permanent residence in the U.S., one must have:

  • Family-based eligibility, where the applicant has family legally in the U.S. or a family member in the U.S. with a green card
  • Employment-based eligibility, where the applicant is sponsored by a U.S.-based employer, presents a PERM labor certificate, and proves they’re filling a role unfillable by current U.S. citizens
  • Asylum-based eligibility, where the applicant has received official asylum from an immigration court judge, and it’s been at least a year since asylum was granted.

Achieving lawful permanent residence status and a green card can be intricate. A single error, even with the best intentions, can lead to delays or outright denial of the application. Hence, it’s pivotal for applicants to collaborate with a seasoned immigration attorney who can:

  • Accelerate the approval process
  • Assist in appealing or reopening denied cases
  • Advocate for applicants throughout the process
