Green Cards For Permanent U.S. Residency
Green cards are direct immigrant visas that allow foreigners to gain permanent resident status in America. But applying for one is costly, time-consuming and often difficult. Filing for and obtaining one from Canada typically takes 12 to 18 months – provided you don’t run into problems.
Before you put yourself through the process, our lawyers at Border Solutions can help you evaluate the most important initial question surrounding green cards: Do you actually need one for your situation and goals?
Analyzing Your Needs – Green Card Or Not?
Every week, our firm receive inquiries from Vancouver residents who think they need a green card when, in fact, many of them do not. Part of how we create value for our clients is by analyzing their true immigration needs and determining which path accomplishes the goal in the most optimal way.
If, in your case, that involves filing for a green card, then we’ll guide you through the process. If not, we’ll let you know the alternatives that could meet your goals – in many cases, more quickly and at less expense.
Often, all it takes is a streamlined prescreening consultation to determine the best route. Our lawyers will run through all your options by considering such questions as:
- Are you planning to work in the U.S.?
- How long do you plan to stay?
- How soon do you need to be in the U.S.?
- Do you really need an immigrant visa or will a nonimmigrant work visa suffice?
- If you need a green card, which category best suits your needs?
