Green Card | Pregunta a los Abogados
Question: How do I get my green card?
Before starting the application process, there are two questions that you should answer first:
#1 – Are you eligible to apply?
U.S. immigration laws provide a variety of ways for people to apply for a Green Card. The eligibility requirements may vary depending on the immigrant category you are applying under. Go to our Green Card Eligibility Categories page to see all the possible categories you can apply under and what the eligibility requirements are.
#2 – Are you inside or outside the United States?
If you are eligible to apply for a Green Card, you then need to determine which process to use – adjustment of status or consular processing.
General Application Process
The steps you must take to apply for a Green Card will vary depending on your individual situation.
However, here is the general application process that most applicants will go through:
1. Someone usually must file an immigrant petition for you (often referred to as sponsoring or petitioning for you). In some cases, you may be eligible to file for yourself.
2. After USCIS approves the immigrant petition, and there is a visa available in your category, you file either a Green Card application with USCIS or a visa application with the U.S. Department of State.
3. You go to a biometrics appointment to provide fingerprints, photos, and a signature.
4. You go to an interview.
5. You receive a decision on your application.
