Becoming a Permanent Resident
Individuals who may qualify for adjustment of status include those who fall under one of the following categories:
- Family-Based Immigration – Foreign nationals can obtain green cards when they are sponsored by spouses or certain types of relatives who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.
- Employee-Based Immigration – Individuals can obtain green cards when they are sponsored by U.S. employers. Green cards can also be given to entrepreneurs who plan to invest substantially in U.S. business ventures.
- Humanitarian Programs – There are many people who qualify for green cards through asylum or refugee status, which is given when foreign nationals face oppression in their own countries. Others who may qualify under humanitarian programs include: abused spouses or family members of U.S. citizens, human trafficking victims, individuals facing unique emergencies, and more.
- Special Classes of Immigrants – When individuals meet certain criteria and qualify as "special immigrants," they can become eligible for green cards. A few of the special immigrant categories include: religious workers, juvenile court dependents, Armed Forces members, and more.
