Green card immigration lawyer in Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio

Bill Abdallah is your Green Card lawyer in Dayton and Cincinnati Ohio

A Green Card is the document issued by the US Immigration Service (USCIS) to foreign nationals granting them permanent residency in the USA. A Green Card allows you to live and work in the United States of America. It is officially called Form I-551, the Permanent Resident Card, so Green Card holders are known as 'Lawful Permanent Residents' of the USA.

It is possible to obtain a Green Card by:

  • employment and sponsorship
  • through the 'Green Card Lottery'
  • through a family member
  • by marriage
Those termed 'special immigrants' such as religious workers may also be eligible, as well as refugees and asylum seekers, some agricultural workers, those eligible for amnesty after a period of illegal residency, and certain other special cases.

If any of the following applies to you, you may not be eligible to obtain a Green Card:
  • You entered the U.S. while you were in transit to another country without obtaining a visa;
  • you are employed in the United States without INS authorization or you are no longer legally in the country;
  • youare the immediate relative of a U.S. citizen (parent, spouse, or unmarried child under 21 years old);
  • you are a J-1 or J-2 exchange visitor who must comply with the two-year foreign residence requirement, and you have not met or been granted a waiver for this requirement;
  • You were admitted as a K-1 fiancé but did not marry the U.S. citizen who filed the petition for you;
  • Amongst other reasons.
This is not a complete list of eligibility criteria for the Green Card program. For advice about how Green Card legislation and regulations apply to you please contact us.
