Green Cards

Do you want to obtain a green card through marriage or other relationship to a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident?

Are you a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident who wants to sponsor your spouse or other family members for a green card?

Do you want someone to take care of all the details so you will not have to worry about delays or denials?

If yes, let us help you with all the immigration paperwork so you will not have to be separated from your loved ones. If you want to easily secure a green card for you or your family member to secure your future together and maintain your family unity, you are in the right place. We have helped thousands of people to secure green cards through family relationships and united their families in the United States.

Although more than 40% of immigration cases are delayed or denied, we have one of the highest approval rates in the industry, with very few cases that have been denied by USCIS. Family sponsorship is a complicated process that requires highly trained and knowledgeable legal counsel, because the immigration services are always looking for fraud and inconsistencies in the application. With more than 5 years of immigration law experience, we have developed an expertise in this area. We have a fantastic track record in obtaining the best results for our clients, and you can depend on us.

Three Things You Should Know About Permanent Residency:

  1. Permanent Residency (often referred to as a “green card”) is a status conferred on certain foreign nationals that allows them to live in the United States indefinitely.  Permanent residency also entitles a foreign national to work in the United States and to travel in and out of the United States without seeking additional visas or permissions. The status is “permanent” in the sense that the status does not expire and can only be taken away through a formal process, based on certain types of affirmative misconduct such as immigration fraud or serious criminal convictions.
  2. Permanent residency usually is granted based on a petition filed by an immediate family member who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.  Permanent residency is also granted on certain humanitarian bases, such as having been approved for political asylum.
  3. Because a person can become an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen by marrying one, there is a lot of marriage fraud in the immigration system.  In order to be granted permanent residency, the foreign national must demonstrate that the marriage is bona fide, meaning that it was not entered into for the sole purpose of obtaining immigration status.  USCIS will scrutinize marriage cases for fraud, so the marriage must be well documented.  The government can impose serious criminal and immigration penalties for marriage fraud.
