Employment-based Green Cards


U.S. Legal Permanent Residents may elect to become U.S. Citizens and naturalize.

Seeking a Green Card so You Can Work: Know Your Options for Permanent Residency

Job-related Green Cards can be gained if you are offered employment by a United States company, or for specialized jobs. Obtaining a Green Card grants you permanent residence within the United States, and can open up many more opportunities. At Millar & Hayes, our Seattle green card lawyers can help you through the process, avoiding pitfalls and mistakes which can sometimes cause delays and denials.

Obtaining a Green Card

The process of obtaining a Green Card for permanent residency in the United States can sometimes take longer than you might desire. Under our guidance, you can make sure that you are appropriately moving forward in the process and we work to help you achieve favorable results. First, we make sure you are eligible for a Green Card by reviewing the eligibility requirements. We also make sure that you can obtain a visa while you wait for your Green Card to be awarded to you. The rest of the process involves a medical exam, filing an affidavit of support, and proving that you will not become a financial liability to the government.

If you are serious about getting legal assistance a consultation is the best place to start. Spend up to a full hour with an immigration attorney to discuss the details of your case, get answers to your questions, work through complex issues and supporting documents and plan an immigration strategy for obtaining benefits.
