Categories of Eligibility for a Green Card

There are different types of green cards and avenues of eligibility to obtain one. The most common categories of green cards are family-based (for your spouse, relatives, or children) and employment-based green cards. In order to ensure you are applying for the right type of green card, it is important that you are educated on your options. Each category may receive a certain amount of visas each year, depending on what the U.S. government deems necessary.

The most common categories for green cards include:

  • Asylum and refugee status
  • Preferred workers and employees
  • Family members of U.S. citizens
  • Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens

There may be additional ways that you can obtain a green card and become a permanent resident. We can sit down with you during your initial consultation and explore your options with you, such as green cards that are available for diplomats, members of the Armed Forces, and victims of domestic violence.
