Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
To obtain permanent resident status in Mexico you must meet one of the following qualifications:
1) Applicants with ties to Mexican Citizens or foreigners (Non Mexican) residing in Mexico with temporary or permanent residency status
2) Applicants with job offer; stating the occupation, physical address, temporarily and proof of future employer ID registration number within Mexico Immigration
3) Retired Applicants who can prove a monthly income or pension over $2,500.00, U.S.
4) Applicants with Temporary Residency for four years
5) Applicants with investments or bank accounts averaging over $100.000.00, U.S. per month
You have to apply for your visa through the Mexican Consulate in your area outside of Mexico first.
Then once you apply for your visa, the consulate has to submit the documentation for the permanent resident status to the immigration office in the Mexican state where you will reside. You will then have to appear at the immigration office in Mexico for your interview and your criminal background check. You have to be a temporary resident for 4 years before they grant permanent status, so for that 4 years you must keep going to the immigration office and paying about $250 to renew your temporary resident status.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
