Dallas Green Card Lawyer | Green Card Attorney

Dallas Green Card Lawyer

Becoming a Legal Permanent Resident (“LPR”), or Green Card holder, allows a person to live and work in the US permanently. There are many options for an individual to become a LPR. The most common way is through a qualifying family member or through your employer. The Dallas Green Card Lawyers at Mwaniki London, PLLC are experienced in assisting clients in obtaining their green card.

Before you can apply for your green card, you need to have an approved immigrant visa petition. Once the petition is approved, you can apply for your green card, provided that an immigrant visa is immediately available to you.

Here is a list of the family preference categories:

1. Immediate Relatives (spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens. For immigration purposes, a “child” is a person under the age of 21).

2. First Preference (unmarried sons and daughters of U.S. citizens. For immigration purposes, “son” and “daughter” means a child over the age of 21)

3. Second Preference (2A) (spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21 of lawful permanent residents)

4. Second Preference (2B) (unmarried sons and daughters over the age of 21 of lawful permanent residents)

5. Third Preference (married sons or daughters of U.S. citizens. This means a child over the age of 21)

6. Fourth Preference (brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens)

The immediate relative category is not subject to an annual quota. First, Second, Third, and Fourth preferences, however, are subject to a quota.
