Establishing Permanent Residence Due to Family Relationship
If you are adopting a child or you are married to someone who is a U.S. citizen, then your New York immigration lawyer can help you. When you marry someone who is a U.S. citizen, it is possible for you to obtain a green card. Every year, there are nearly a half million citizens of the U.S. who marry foreign-born individuals and submit petitions for them to obtain permanent residence. Under immigration laws, these spouses are classified as “immediate relatives” and are made eligible to obtain their green card rather fast compared to those looking for permanent residence without a family relationship.
