Massachusetts Green Card Lawyer

Do You Need to Apply For or Renew a Green Card? Are You Looking To or Continue To Live and Work in the United States, and Need a Boston Area Immigration Attorney That Always Calls You Back, Listens to You, Clearly Communicates The Options with You and Has Helped Many Others In Situations Just Like Yours?

The primary difference between a green card and a visa is that the visa is only a temporary pass that lets you enter the United States and remain there for a specific period of time, whereas the green card is a permit that does not only allow you to enter the US, but also lets you stay as long as you want.

Am I Eligible For a Green Card?

To apply for a green card, you must be eligible under one of the following categories.

  • Employment-Based Immigrants
  • Family Preference-Based Immigrants
  • Immediate Relatives of a U.S. Citizen
  • Individuals with Asylee or Refugee Status
  • A Victim of Human Trafficking or Other Crimes
  • VAWA

Other Special circumstances may grant eligibility. Contact your Massachusetts Immigration Attorney for more information on what may qualify you for a Green Card.

Visas and Green Cards

In general, a visa must be available for you before you can apply for a Green Card. In some categories, visas are always available, while in others, there are a limited number. Priority dates are given to immigrants waiting in line to get an immigrant visa and determine when a visa becomes available.

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) sets the number of immigrant visas the U.S. Department of State (DOS) can issue to noncitizens seeking to become lawful permanent residents (get a Green Card) each year.

Immigrant visas for immediate relatives of U.S. citizens are unlimited, so they are always available. Immediate relatives include:

  • The spouses of U.S. citizens;
  • The children (unmarried and under 21 years of age) of U.S. citizens;
  • The parents of U.S. citizens at least 21 years old; and
  • Widows or widowers of U.S. citizens if the U.S. citizen filed a petition before they died, or if the widow(er) files a petition within two years of the citizen’s death.

Immigrant visas for the family-sponsored and employment-based immigrant preference categories are numerically limited, so they are not always immediately available. Priority is given on a first come first serve basis. Contact Nomos Law Group L.L.C to start getting your place in line today.
