Green Cards

Obtaining a green card is known as obtaining permanent resident status in the United States. A green card offers individuals the opportunity to live and work in the U.S. on a permanent basis. Many individuals are able to obtain citizenship after maintaining permanent resident status.

I am attorney John Nguyen, and I have been through the U.S. immigration process myself. In 1981, I came to the United States. Both as an attorney and as an immigrant, I understand how stressful the process can be. This allows me to better assist clients in all stages of the immigration process.

Obtaining Permanent Resident Status

There are several different ways to obtain a green card, and I can discuss with you your individual options based on your unique circumstances. Some of these options include:

  • Obtaining a green card through relatives
  • Obtaining a green card through marriage
  • Obtaining a green card through employment
  • Obtaining a green card through investment
  • Obtaining an asylum green card through refugee status

The process of seeking permanent resident status varies depending on where the petitioner lives. Individuals living outside of the United States need to interview at the U.S. Consulate or at a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office.

The U.S. immigration process is complex and time-consuming. Not only do I prepare the paperwork necessary to apply for a green card, I also prepare clients for their interview with immigration officials. This extra step gives clients peace-of-mind and a sense of preparedness during an often-stressful process.
