Do You Need a Green Card Lawyer?
If you’re trying to get a green card on your own, you know full well just how confusing and challenging the process is. This isn’t surprising given the intense scrutiny that immigrants face, particularly in recent years. To that end, understanding the process and how our team can help you along is very important:
- Evaluating your options – While there’s a number of different options for your status as an immigrant, the green card process is a path toward full U.S. citizenship. We’ll help you understand the process and what you need to file a successful petition.
- Filing a successful petition – Currently, your green card petition depends on whether you’re inside or outside of the U.S. If you’re already here, you can file a Form I-485, while a Form DS-260 applies if you’re outside the country at present. We’ll make sure you have the proper documentation and other evidence needed for a successful petition.
- Staying compliant – Our services don’t stop once you get your green card. We’ll not only do our best for you to obtain permanent residence, but we’ll also make sure all of your paperwork stays up to date so you can keep you resident status.
- Supporting you – Obviously, the green card process can be challenging and time-consuming. One of the best things we do is stay with you throughout the process, giving you support and keeping you updated on how it’s going.
With so many different qualifications and questions, the green card process can be frustrating. Then, you also have to deal with the actual petition process. All of this factors into our approach, and we take pride in how we can help you as you pursue your green card.
What are the Benefits of a Green Card?
Given the challenges that come with being an immigrant, facing the green card process can seem daunting. This is particularly true if English is your second language, you lack certain resources or support systems, or a general lack of understanding about the process. While we can help with all of these things, you can become emboldened when you consider the benefits of getting a green card:
- Permanent residency – A green card provides you with permanent resident status in the U.S., allowing you to live and work there indefinitely. In places like Los Angeles, this can be a key to having the security to build a better life.
- Work opportunities – Los Angeles is a major economic hub with diverse industries such as entertainment, technology, healthcare, and more. Holding a green card allows you to pursue employment opportunities in these sectors without the need for specific work visas.
- Culture – Los Angeles has a thriving cultural and artistic scene. Green Card holders can fully immerse themselves in the city’s cultural events, museums, galleries, and artistic communities. The city is also synonymous with the film and television industries, which can also provide opportunities.
- Educational opportunities – Los Angeles is home to prestigious universities and research institutions. Green card holders can pursue education and research opportunities without the constraints of student visas.
- Family sponsorship – If you have family members abroad, being a green card holder enables you to sponsor certain family members to join you in Los Angeles, fostering family reunification.
