What is a Green Card?

A green card, or officially known as a Permanent Resident Card, grants individuals the legal right to live and work permanently in the United States. For families, this means stability, security, and the ability to build a future together without the constant worry of visa renewals or potential deportation. Family-based green cards are vital for reuniting loved ones, ensuring families can thrive in the U.S.

Family-based green cards are categorized into two primary groups: immediate relatives and family preference categories. Immediate relatives include spouses of U.S. citizens, unmarried children under 21 of U.S. citizens, and parents of U.S. citizens who are at least 21 years old. Family preference categories cover more distant relatives, such as adult children and siblings of U.S. citizens, this also includes spouses and unmarried children of lawful permanent residents.

What are the Requirements for a Green Card?

An immigrant can become eligible for a green card through various routes. The common thread in all of these paths is sponsorship. Green card applicants must have a sponsor. This sponsor must be a U.S. citizen or a green card holder themselves, and they must currently reside in the United States.

The sponsor must have both the willingness and ability to assume financial responsibility for the green card applicant for a decade. If the applicant requires government assistance during this 10-year period, the sponsor could be obliged to reimburse the relevant public agency.
