Getting Your Green Card – What You Should Know: Marriage, Questions, Lottery and the Process
What is a Green Card?
When most people talk of getting their green card, they are referring to the process of obtaining Permanent Residency Status.
The green card is issued as proof that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has granted its approval for you to be in the U.S. as a permanent resident. It is your evidence that you have been approved for permanent residency status.
Benefits of a Green Card:
After you have been issued a green card, you can live and work anywhere in the United States. To get a job you do not have to apply for a separate work visa. Travel permits are not required between states.
You also have the right to apply for a driver’s license and attend college. If you have family members, you can apply for visas for your spouse and unmarried children.
