What Documents Do I Need For A Green Card?

Mar 8, 2019 Familia America Green Card

This is a great question. The answer depends on what kind of green card you are looking to apply. There are several types of green cards: family, employment, refugee, asylum, and other special provisions. Unlike popular belief, green cards are neither easy nor cheap to get. The process is long and can cost several thousands of dollars. But do not fear. Our professional Green Card Attorneys in Salt Lake City at Familia America Immigration in Salt Lake City is ready to get your application going. The journey to success starts with a good immigration attorney and our Green Card Attorneys are top notch.

Family Green Card Documentation

Family Green Cards are the most common. Here are several things to consider if you are considering a family green card:

  • To be eligible for a family green card then you must be a related to a U.S. citizen by
    • Spouse
    • Unmarried child under the age of 21
    • Unmarried stepchild under the age of 21
    • Adopted child under the age of 18
    • A parent or a stepparent
    • Unmarried son or daughter over the age of 21
    • married son or daughter of any age
    • Brother or sister

The documents needed to complete this kind of green card involves birth certificate, marriage certificate (if necessary), medical records, recent health evaluation, employment papers, and any kind of legal documentation. One would think that this kind of paperwork is easy to find, but sometimes hospitals do not provide a birth certificate or sometimes children are not born in official places that provide birth certificates.

Our Green Card Attorneys are well equipped to handle any snag in your green card application process. In fact, we are experienced to see the warning signs before we send the application through. The immigration system is fickle in the sense that if there is anything wrong with the documentation then they will reject it and send it back. This only sets your dreams back further, costs more money, and wastes the precious time you have here to work on your application.

Other Types Of Green Cards

If you are looking to apply for an employment green card then there are other forms of documentation such as employment and pay stubs that may be required as well. Even though employment green cards may seem more efficient they can also take years to obtain. Our Green Card Attorneys are well versed in all types of Green Cards and look forward to working with you.

A Green Card is a way for you to be a legal person in the United States. Even though a Green Card does not have all the same perks as full citizenship, a Green Card allows you to safely stay and participate in your community. Salt Lake City is open to those who are ready to live their best dreams. Our Green Card Attorneys at Familia America Immigration are here to give you hope and direction.
