Green Card Questions

Green cards are issued to immigrants who have acquired permanent residency in the U.S. Once a person receives a green card, they can live and work in the U.S. There are a number of ways a person can file for a green card. Employment seems to be the most common approach to acquiring a green card. A family member who has citizenship in the states can petition for a person who wishes to live in the U.S. Marriage is another way a person can gain residency but must file to remove limitations after a two year period. Applying for a green card can be a long drawn out process due to the limited number of cards that can be issued each year. In some cases it can take several years to complete the process, longer if the person doesn't have specialized work skills. To learn more about green cards, take a look at the questions below that have been answered by Experts.

What are the requirements for a green card in the US? I will be applying under an EB3 category.

The EB3 category requires having an employer sponsor you through a labor certificate or Perm. This doesn't mean that you must be employed when you file your labor certification, however you will need a valid job offer. Once you file, the government will review the application and will make a decision on whether to approve or deny it. If the labor certification is approved, your employer may then sponsor you for permanent residency.

I am a green card holder, can I petition my fiancé?

Green card holders are not allowed to file fiancé visas. However, if you are granted U.S. citizenship, you could petition for her. Until your gain citizenship, your fiancé will have to make arrangements to enter the U.S., perhaps through a U.S. family member or through an employer. If you go to your fiancé's country and marry her, you could return to the states and file for her green card. If approved, it could take up to one year before she could enter the states as a green card holder.

When I go to the Department of Homeland Security to renew my green card, they will require identification. My driver's license and passport have both expired. What can I do?

The department of Homeland Security should permit you to use the expired driver's license and passport for identification purposes. In order to renew your driver's license, you will need a current green card. Most states will not issue a driver's license without documentation that proves you are in the states legally.

I just got my green card with AS 7 code on it. Will I be allowed into my native county and re enter the U.S. with this?

The AS7 code shows that you are the spouse of an AS6. You shouldn't have an issue with re-entry to the states as long as your green card is current. However, you may want to contact the embassy of the country that you wish to visit. The reason you should contact the embassy is because you may need additional documentation for the visit, such as a visitor visa. It is also important that you don't spend an extended period of time out of the states. By doing so, you may have issues when you try to re-entry.

My green card will expire in May 2012. I want to go overseas March 23, 2012 through April 8. 2012. Will I have problems entering the US?

You should probably apply for the green card before you leave the states. If the process isn't completed by the time you leave the states, you will need to take any documents that show evidence of the green card renewal. You shouldn't have any difficulty when you re-enter before the green card has expired. However, you may be delayed at the port of entry due to the card being close to expiration. As long as you have the documents that show you have re-applied for the green card, you should be allowed back in the states.

Applying for a green card can become a stressful situation for an individual if they are not familiar with the process. Many questions arise throughout the process and many people are unsure who to ask. If you need answers regarding green cards, you should ask an Expert who can provide answers to assist you with your situation.
