Accomplished New York Lawyer Assists Immigrants Seeking Green Cards
Skilled immigration attorney based in the New York City area helps clients become permanent U.S. residents
Having a Green Card, officially known as a Permanent Resident Card, allows people to reside permanently in the United States. At Outerbridge Law P.C., I am an experienced immigration lawyer who can help you determine your eligibility and assist with a petition, which is required in certain cases, and your application for a Green Card. I will guide you through each step of the process so you have the best chance of achieving your dream of establishing permanent residency in the United States.
Dedicated advocate helps you understand eligibility requirements
Various factors can affect your ability to become a permanent resident. To obtain a Green Card, you must be eligible under one of these categories:
- Marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- A close family relationship to a citizen or permanent resident
- Specific employment experience or skills
- A job offer within the United States
- Employment with the U.S. government in a foreign country
- The existence or threat of child abuse
- Length of time living in the United States without criminal violations
- Political unrest or persecution in one's home country
I take the time to understand your background and circumstances to determine whether they make you eligible to apply for a Green Card so you can remain in the country.
Responsive counselor guides immigrants through the application process
Establishing permanent residency in the United States usually begins with a visa petition from a spouse, relative or potential employer. This sets forth your reasons for requesting a green card. From there, you will need to fill out an application. I can ensure it is accurate and appropriately detailed to give you the best chance of acceptance. I have the background to estimate how your application will be handled based on the type of petition, your individual attributes and the number of green cards available to citizens of your home country. Depending on your circumstances, the entire process can be quick or take several years to complete, but I will work toward a positive resolution as promptly as possible that accomplishes your goal: gaining the rights, benefits and privileges of living here on a permanent basis.
