The Foreign Citizen Permanent Resident Documentation or Green Card is the next step for all foreign citizens who wish to become U.S. citizens. Unlike the various visas that allow entry into the United States, the Green Card provides for permanent stay and unlimited returns to your country of origin, more protection and is a necessary item on the road to become a citizen of this country. The Law Offices of Emily Cohen is here to guide our clients in the process to achieve your citizenship.
To qualify for a Green Card the first step is to become familiar with the various types of qualifications (Green Card through: Family, Job, Refugee or Asylee Status, and more) and then decide which category fits you best. Make sure that when seeking a green card you meet the requirements listed on the USCIS website.
We cannot stress enough the importance of advancing your status in the U.S. With every step you take you will receive more benefits from the U.S. government and more opportunities in general. Becoming a resident and then a U.S. citizen is also the best way to bring other family members to the U.S. legally.

In a recent proposition by the Obama Administration has made it easier for U.S. citizens and residents with undocumented spouses and family to get Green Cards to join them here in the U.S. To try and keep our countries families (documented or undocumented) together this new regulation should “change the procedures by which illegal immigrants with American family members apply for legal residency.” If any of our readers have family that is undocumented please seek legal help before proceeding to get a Green Card for your families.
