You May Be Able to Obtain a Family-Based Green Card

One of the most common ways that a non-citizen is able to obtain a green card is through family-based immigration. If you are a close relative of a United States citizen, you may be eligible to apply for a green card. To apply, you will need to have your U.S.-based relative sponsor you. Under the terms of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), eligible family members may currently include:

  • A spouse;
  • A fiancé;
  • Unmarried children under 21;
  • Parents; and
  • Family members who fit into preference categories.

You May Be Able to Obtain an Employment-Based Green Card

Another common path to an American green card is through employment. As stated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS): American immigration law provides workers several different paths to obtain a green card through their employment in the United States. In these cases, the applicant

  • Must be sponsored by a U.S.-based employer; and
  • Must meet certain qualification standards.
