Legal Permanent Residence/Green Card
Experienced Manhattan & Long Island Immigration Attorneys
Lawful Permanent Residence (LPR) is a status for individuals who have obtained “green cards” or permanent visas. “Green cards” allow individuals to stay in the United States for an extended period of time and gives that individual official immigration status in the United States. An attorney can help you get through the process of obtaining your “green card”, but you will need either a U.S. employer or relative as a sponsor. There are many options available to individuals and therefore consulting an attorney is highly recommended.

- Through an employer
- Through refugee or asylum status

Benefits of Having a Green Card
With a green card, an individual enjoys the right to live and work in the U.S. permanently. Permanent residents are also eligible to petition their close family members for green cards under a preference category. Once a person has a green card, they are one step closer to obtaining citizenship once they meet all the other requirements.
However, green card holders are not eligible to vote in all elections, only in local elections that do not require U.S. citizenship.
