If you are interested in obtaining a green card, it is in your best interest to work with a capable Fort Myers immigration attorney. Hurtado Immigration Law Firm can walk you through the process and position you for success every step of the way.

Contact us online or call (239) 800-0580 to get started by scheduling a consultation with our team.

Benefits of Holding a Green Card

Though many temporary visas can be a significant stepping stone towards achieving the American dream, a green card grants rights and benefits that can have a huge impact on the LPR’s future.

Lawful permanent residents can:

  • Leave or enter the U.S. without the risk of being denied entry (so long as they travel with their green card).
  • Apply for government-sponsored aid for education.
  • Save money on university and college as opposed to foreign nationals.
  • Work in the U.S. without employer sponsorship.
  • Start a business in the U.S.
  • Receive Social Security benefits if they worked for 10 years before retiring.
  • Enjoy nearly all rights of citizens under U.S. law except the right to vote.

How to Obtain a Green Card

Those interested in applying for a green card must first qualify by meeting certain requirements. There are a few different ways that a foreigner can qualify.

You may obtain a green card through:

  • Family: Certain relatives of U.S. citizens or those engaged to a U.S. citizen may be eligible for permanent residency.
  • Employment: The PERM process allows certain foreigners to obtain a green card to work in the U.S.
  • Special immigrant status: Religious workers, international broadcasters, special immigrant juveniles, immigrant investors, and certain other immigrants may be eligible for a green card.
  • Refugee or asylee status: You can obtain a green card if you were granted asylum status or admitted as a refugee at least one year ago.
  • Status as a victim of human trafficking or abuse: Individuals who have left their home country as the victims of human trafficking, crime, or battery or extreme cruelty can be granted permanent residency.
