Are you in pursuit of a means to establish permanent residency in the United States? If you’re married to a U.S. citizen, one viable avenue is to seek a green card through your spouse. However, it’s crucial to recognize that eligibility for a family-based green card extends beyond conjugal ties. At Rijal Law Firm, we’re eager to engage with prospective clients on their immigration journey.
Navigating the Path to a Family-Based Green Card
Becoming a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) of the United States through a familial relationship with a citizen entails a structured process. The initial step involves filing an immigration visa petition (Form I-130), which must gain approval. This petition can be submitted by either a U.S. citizen or an LPR relative. Subsequently, the Department of State assesses the availability of an immigrant visa number. If the applicant is already in the United States, they can apply for an adjustment of status once a visa number becomes accessible. For those residing outside the country, the processing is completed through the Department of State’s National Visa Center. While this process may seem intricate, rest assured that our firm is well-equipped to guide you every step of the way.
Understanding the Green Card Through Spouse Route
It cannot be emphasized enough how the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) vehemently opposes the notion of a “sham” marriage. USCIS vigilantly monitors for signs of individuals entering marriages solely for immigration benefits. Even the slightest oversight or a lack of crucial evidence can lead to application denial, jeopardizing your priority date and necessitating reapplication. Our team is dedicated to preventing such setbacks from affecting your immigration goals.
