Permanent Resident/Green Card

Permanent Resident

A permanent resident, or green card holder, is someone who has been granted the authorization to live and work in the United States. The most direct path to becoming a Legal Permanent Resident permanently will depend on your individual circumstances. Immigration lawyers of Slowik & Robinson, LLC, handle permanent residency applications and petitions, filed through the following channels:

  • Immigration through employment
  • Immigration through a family member
  • Immigration by way of investor visa
  • Immigration through the Diversity Lottery
  • Adjustment of status for visa holders already in the U.S.
  • U.S. citizenship for permanent residents

Often, foreign nationals come to the U.S. intending to visit, work or study for a specified period of time, with the intention to return home following their stay. They obtain the appropriate visa (academic, business and work visas, family visas, tourist visas, etc.) prior to making the trip to the United States, however, after spending time here they decide that they would prefer to remain in the U.S. due to a change in their life circumstances.
