A green card, officially known as a permanent resident card, indicates that the green card holder is a legally permanent resident of the United States. As a permanent resident, you are authorized to live and work permanently in the U.S. You are also eligible to sponsor certain family relatives to help them attain permanent residence. Green card holders are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship following a certain period of residency, generally between 3 – 5 years after gaining permanent resident status.
HOW CAN I QUALIFY FOR A GREEN CARD OR CITIZENSHIP?
There are several paths to become a permanent resident in the United States. The most common path to residency is through a family member or employer in the United States. This is referred to as sponsorship. Certain victims of abuse may file for green card status without a sponsor. Other individuals may qualify for permanent residency after obtaining refugee or asylum status. Although permanent residency is the most common path to citizenship, there are other options available for certain individuals who have at least one U.S. parent. Read below to learn more.

Adjustment of Status vs. Consular Processing – What’s the difference?
Adjustment of Status
If you are already lawfully in the United States, then you may be eligible to stay in the in the country and apply for another immigration status – thereby adjusting your status. Adjusting your status in the U.S. has certain benefits, such as attending your interview at the USCIS field office of your home state. Certain eligibility requirements must be met to qualify for adjustment of status. For starters, you must have entered the U.S. lawfully and maintained your lawful status for the entire duration. (certain exceptions may applies). Individuals who qualify to adjust their status may also qualify for work authorization while their adjustment of status application is pending.
Consult a citizenship and green card lawyer to understand how to adjust your status.
Phoenix Immigration Lawyer
If you are located outside of the United States, or do not qualify to adjust your status inside the country, you must apply for your U.S. immigration benefits at a U.S. embassy or consulate, also known as consular processing. Once USCIS approves your initial immigrant petition (if applicable), your case is transferred to the National Visa Center (NVC) for further processing. The NVC, a component of the U.S. Department of State, is responsible for holding non-immigrant visa applications and immigrant petitions until a visa becomes available and/or an interviews date becomes available at the designated embassy or consulate abroad.
Adjustment of Status vs. Consular Processing may depend on your eligibility criteria and personal preferences. Your individual factors determine which option you are eligible for, or what option better suits your personal circumstances. Cost and wait times may also factor into this decision.
