Are you a United States Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident
and would like to sponsor your spouse to get a green card?
We’re Here to Help!
Getting married to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident does not automatically grant the immigrant spouse lawful status. The U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (green card holder) spouse must file a special immigrant visa petition and green card case for their spouse to start this process. But nothing is guaranteed. Since obtaining a green card (lawful permanent residency) through marriage is one of the fastest ways to obtain legal status in the U.S., it can be wrought with challenges. The government reviews marriage cases very closely to confirm that you married in good faith and not just for a green card. The government also screens the immigrant spouse’s immigration, criminal, and relationship history, as well as other factors to determine eligibility for a green card.
You need the help of experienced immigration counsel who can help guide you through the process. We walk you through the process, advising you every step of the way, including representing you and your spouse at the green card interview.
