If you are the unmarried child or spouse of a permanent resident, you too can apply for a green card. A child is anyone under 21 years of age who is not married. Because of this, turning 21 before or during the green card process can delay your visa.
The number of visas available to eligible family members of residents is limited, so there may be some waiting after filing for permanent residence before getting a visa.
If you are living in the U.S., there are two steps to gaining residence. First, your resident relative has to petition for residence on your behalf. Once you have petitioned for residence, wait for your visa to be current and accepted. After waiting for your visa to be updated, you can file for a change of status to permanent resident.
If you are not yet living in the U.S., file for permanent residence then wait for your visa to be approved through the U.S. State Department. After your visa is approved, you can travel to the U.S. and will get your green card upon entering the U.S.
For more information and help with getting a green card, contact attorney Phillip Kim.
