Application for Green Card
A green card offers permanent residence and gives you the benefits of living, working and studying in the U.S. Your green card is basically good for life if you keep up renewal and eligibility requirements.
Family-based green cards are one of the most common ways to obtain lawful permanent resident status in the U.S. You can apply for a family-based green card through a spousal, sibling, child or parent relationship. A petition must be filed on your behalf by a family member who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. Your family must provide proof of the relationship that you hold and prove that they can support you at 125% above the mandated poverty line.
