Experienced Help With Green Cards

A green card is the goal of many immigrants to the United States. The green card, or technically, a permanent resident card, allows a noncitizen to live and work in the U.S. permanently. Green cards may be granted to family members of citizens, employers and some refugees.

The number of green cards issued every year is strictly regulated, with caps set on the number of employment-sponsored green cards permitted. Immigration law has always been political and has become only more so. Laws, regulations and quotas can change every year.

Immigration Law Remains Volatile

At Shelby Law Firm, our attorneys keep up to date on all the changes in this volatile area to ensure that applications for green cards are accurate. We make sure clients avoid unnecessary delays that can occur when applications are filed incorrectly, are missing documents or fail to meet other requirements.

Requirements For A Green Card

For most individuals, you will need a sponsor to file your application, such as a spouse or an employer. There are numerous petitions, such as:

  • I-485 permanent residence or adjust status
  • I-130 alien relative
  • I-140 alien worker
  • I-589 asylum
  • I-508F waiver of rights for French nationals

Don’t Allow A Mistake To Delay Your Application

Immigration law is highly technical. It can be very arbitrary. Requirements can change without warning. Our attorneys complete applications for a green card with meticulous attention to detail. They understand how important this immigration status can be for you and your family, and they make every effort to ensure the completeness and accuracy of each filing.
