Green Cards

Green Card or Permanent Resident Status

One of the ways to live and work in the U.S. is the green card.┬áThe Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova, P.A. help clients achieve legal resident status in the United States. As with all U.S. immigration servicese, you must meet requirements and process an application. If you’d like to change your status from a legal temporary resident and worker to a lawful permanent resident, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova, P.A. offer their legal services.

The green card can be obtained three different ways: through a family member, an employment-based green card, or the diversity lottery.

Family-based Green Card

In family-based immigration, a foreign relative already residing lawfully in the U.S. can change his or her status to permanent resident.

Employment-based Green Card

Employment-based green cards begin with foreign nationals who work in the U.S. on one of the EB1, EB2, or EB3  visas.

In either of these methods, there is a lengthy process based on documentation, approval, and availability of green cards. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova, P.A. are experienced in Florida’s immigration laws and will help you navigate the paperwork and legal process to obtain your permanent status.

Green Card Diversity Lottery

Many people who visit the United States on student or work visas wish to stay. The green card lottery system is one way for a foreign national to be approved legal permanent status. Through random selection, every year 50,000 green cards are awarded to foreign nationals who meet certain criteria. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova can tell you whether you qualify and can help you enter the lottery system.

Residents with green card status enjoy many of the same benefits as U.S. citizens. They can live in the U.S. as long as they desire and work for any U.S. employer. There are, however, a few benefits to being a U.S. citizen not granted to green card holders. Whether you are looking to become a U.S. citizen or want to obtain a green card, call the Law Offices of Karina Arzumanova, P.A. to assist you in any of your immigration endeavors.
