Permanent Residency (Green Card)

Are you looking to come and live and work in the United States? At Hannaford Immigration law we are devoted to helping you do just that. We have helped many people to come, live and work in the United States permanently so that they can pursue their American dream. Green Card, Legal Permanent Resident You may be eligible to become a permanent resident, also known as getting ones ‘green card’ in many different ways, the most common of which are:

In addition to these more common categories of eligibility, there are many other ways to become a permanent resident. For instance, many non-immigrant (temporary) visa holders, such as those holding the K fiance(e) visa, may be eligible to become permanent residents if the application for adjustment of status is made within a certain time period. Additionally, refugees and asylum seekers may eventually become permanent residents.

Depending on your eligibility for a green card and the basis for which you are applying for one, there may be a time after your petition has been filed before that green card becomes available and before you can accept your visa. This happens as there is often a finite number of green cards that can be issued in each fiscal year and if that category is oversubscribed then a line develops. For a full list of the waiting times and to see if one applies to you, please see the Visa Bulletin. Hannaford Immigration Law is happy to help you navigate through your various options and to help you determine the best type of visa that will suit your immigration needs.

If you are in the United States you may be eligible to adjust your status to becoming a green card holder. In this instance you would file the relevant paperwork in the United States and then in most instances go for an interview here in the US.

If you are outside the U.S. you may be able to consular process.In this case you would still be required to file some paperwork in America and then you will go for your interview at the relevant consulate or embassy that has jurisdiction over where you live. Contact Hannaford Immigration today and let us help you through this process as quickly and as conveniently as possible.
