How to Obtain a Green Card?
When a person is granted permanent residence to live and work in the United States, the government issues an Alien Registration Card, commonly known as a “green card.” One can obtain a green card by different means:
- A family-based petition filed by a qualified U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident family member;
- An employment- based petition submitted by a U.S. employer who desires to hire foreign workers;
- An asylum application submitted by a refugee who is fleeing his/her home country because of fear that he/she will be seriously hurt or killed;
- A diversity lottery winner; or
- An EB-5 investor who invests at least $900,000 in the U.S and creates a minimum of 10 full-time American jobs.
Is the Green Card Process Easy?
Although there are immigration forms and instructions to guide you in the application process, this creates a false sense of security that it is easy. Self-represented filers commonly make mistakes that cost time, money, and unnecessary heartache due to not understanding the procedures and requisite immigration laws.
Individuals seeking a green card can benefit from the extensive knowledge and expertise of attorney, Cheryl Fletcher. Mrs. Fletcher has successfully represented immigrants from various countries with many different types of immigration applications.

Removing Conditions from a Two-Year Green Card
A conditional-resident with a 2-year green card must apply, beginning 90 days before the expiration date, to remove the conditions. The application may be jointly filed with your spouse if you are still married and living together or you may need a waiver because of a divorce, abuse or, extreme hardship if you had to return to your home country.
