If you wish to become a permanent legal resident in America, and you’re looking for assistance from legal counsel, please contact Catherine Henin-Clark, chair of Dean Mead’s Immigration department. There are many ways to go about immigration matters related to permanent residency, but the most common way to establish permanent resident status is through a permanent resident card, or a green card. Green cards serve as proof that an immigrant or foreign citizen has the eligibility to maintain permanent resident status in America.


Green cards are legal documentations that allow an immigrant to gain permanent residence in the U.S. As a result, green cards also allow the green card holder to live legally in America, work and get a job in the U.S., and enjoy other benefits of being a resident in America. There are many ways in which an immigrant can obtain a green card, including:

  • Family-based immigration, including adoption
  • Work-related immigration, including extraordinary ability visas
  • Diversity Visa Program, also known as the Green Card Lottery
  • Refugee status, or asylum

Though there are many options that an individual can take in order to obtain a green card, the process can be time consuming, and at times, incredibly frustrating. Many who dream of living in the United States may feel that the challenges are too great.
