Carlsbad Green Card Lawyer

Obtaining Legal Permanent Residency

Legal permanent residency, also known as a green card, allows a non-citizen to lawfully reside and work in the United States. At The Khan Law Firm, our green card lawyer in Carlsbad guides clients through the green card application process. There are two basic methods for obtaining a green card, other than marriage: employee sponsorship and family sponsorship.

Are you seeking legal permanent residency? Call (442) 200-5011 for more information and to schedule a consultation.

Employment Sponsorship

A company can sponsor an individual for legal permanent residency for employment purposes. This can be done in several ways. In most situations, the foreign citizen has a job offer. In other situations, the foreign citizen may apply for legal permanent residency by self-petition, if the person qualifies by having “extraordinary ability”. Legal permanent residency by investment is granted to foreign entrepreneurs investing in job creation enterprises and individuals with specialized jobs can apply through the special category jobs designation.

Family Sponsorship

Often, people come to the United States sponsored by a relative who is a U.S. citizen or green card holder. There are a few different types of family sponsorship available, depending on the relationship of the applicant to the sponsor.

The types of family sponsorship include:

  • Immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen: Spouses, parents, or unmarried children of U.S. citizens who are under the age of 21

  • Preference category for family members: Unmarried children over age 21, married children, or siblings of the U.S. citizen sponsor

  • Immediate relatives of green card holders: Spouses and unmarried children of legal permanent residents who are under 21 years of age

The best way to obtain a green card varies, depending on the individual’s unique situation and availability of an eligible sponsor. Our green card attorney in Carlsbad can evaluate your situation, explain your options, and guide you through the process of becoming a legal permanent resident of the United States.
