Obtaining a “green card” (I-551) is greatly desired by many people entering or seeking to enter the United States. Possession of the card itself is not dispositive but rather the person’s status as a legal permanent resident (LPR). A green card is simply evidence of one’s status as an LPR, and as an LPR, one can permanently work and reside in the United States. A green card holder should know his or her rights and obligations.
Family sponsored immigration is divided into two groups: 1) Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens which are not subject to a numerical limit within the overall cap of immigrant visas; and 2) Preference System which is subject to a numerical limitation.
The order of visa availability is determined by priority dates and for relative preference petitions, the priority date is the date the petition is correctly filed. One can have an general indication of the approximate waiting time for visa availability by checking the priority date for a particular family-based category. A spouse obtains the same priority date as the beneficiary as long as the marriage still exists.
