Become a Lawful Permanent Resident
If you wish to become a permanent resident of the United States and enjoy the rights that come with permanent residency, you must obtain a green card. The green card allows foreign nationals to live and work permanently in the U.S.

We help clients pursue green cards through eligibility categories, including:
- Family (includes parents, spouses, children and siblings)
- Victims of abuse
- Human trafficking
The Benefits of a Green Card in Miami
Having a Green Card means you are a Lawful Permanent Resident in the United States. The green card allows immigrants the right to live and work freely in the U.S. There are several benefits to having a green card in the United States.
Individuals who hold a green card can:
- Apply for Citizenship after five years (3 years if you are married to a United States Citizen)
- Sponsor relatives to apply for their own green card
- Pay significantly less for college tuition
- Travel in and out of the U.S. with more ease
- Have greater career opportunities
- Wait 10 years before renewing their green card
Understanding Green Card Limitations
It is important to know that having a green card does not protect you from deportation. If you have a conditional resident card, you must file a Petition to Remove Conditions. If you fail to do so, you could be placed in removal proceedings and possible deportation.
In addition, you may also be placed in removal proceedings if you commit a crime, abandon your residence by staying outside of the United States for an extended period of time, or doing something that violates immigration laws.
Applying for or obtaining certain government assistance benefits can complicate your green card and even your application for Citizenship. If you are at risk of losing your green card, reach out to our firm immediately for effective legal representation.
