CAN I GET PERMANENT RESIDENCE THROUGH EMPLOYMENT?
A large percentage of our work at Curray York & Associates involves obtaining permanent residence (“Green Card”) through employment. There are a number of different categories available through which one can obtain permanent residence through employment. During a consultation appointment, we explore the different employment-based permanent resident options to determine which approach will work best for the specific client.
AT THE END OF THE PROCESS, WILL I GET A GREEN CARD?
Yes. “Green Card” is a slang expression for Form I-551, which serves as evidence of permanent residence. “Green Cards” are generally valid for ten years and can be renewed.
COULD I LOSE MY PERMANENT RESIDENCE AFTER IT’S GRANTED?
Yes. You can lose your permanent residence if you:
- Commit certain crimes
- Remain outside the U.S. for extended periods of time, or
- Become a “public charge”
