What Is a Green Card? How Can We Help You?

Mohaimina Haque Sept. 29, 2022

A foreign national or a foreign citizen can become a permanent resident of the United States with a “green card.”  A green card is something that a lot of people from other countries want because it allows them to live, work, study legally, and become citizens of the United States after three or five years of holding their permanent residency in the U.S.  The Law Office of Mohaimina Haque, PLLC provides legal representation to people all around the world to apply for green card.  

More than one million green cards are issued annually by the United States government.  

Depending on the type of green card you apply for and where you are applying from, the processing time for a permanent resident card can take anywhere from a few months to many years.  For example, if you are applying from inside the United States, the waiting period for U.S. citizens' spouses, immediate relatives, and minor children applying through adjustment of status—known as AOS—from inside the country is currently between 10 - 24 months. The wait time can be significantly longer for spouses of U.S. green card holders, other relatives of U.S. citizens, and employment-based green cards. On the other hand, the wait is noticeably longer for spouses and immediate relatives (parents and minor children) of U.S. citizens applying through consular processing from outside the United States.  Country caps apply to all other categories of green cards, and wait times vary greatly.
