Green Cards for Relatives
U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents have the right to petition for certain family members to obtain Lawful Permanent Residency (also called a “green card”) in the United States. This can include:
There are certain limitations as to which relatives can receive green cards, and there are also limits as to how many green cards can be issued based on where the person is from and what type of family relationship they have with their petitioner. Some categories of applicants have to wait many years before their visa becomes available, so it’s recommended that you review your case with an experienced attorney to help you understand the process and set reasonable expectations for the timeline of the case.
