Overview

Only a few categories of people are eligible for U.S. green cards (lawful permanent residence), and many who apply for them are denied. This book helps everyday people figure out whether they match one of the most likely green card categories, such as through family relationships, asylum, the visa lottery, and more.

The book takes readers step by step through the difficult application process, with the help of handy checklists of required forms and documents, tips for avoiding mistakes and dealing with legal complications and bureaucratic holdups, and sample forms.

This edition is completely revised to reflect the latest laws, contact information, and fees, plus critical new procedural information and expanded opportunities for binational same-sex couples based on recent Supreme Court action.

This book is not appropriate for people seeking temporary visas or work-related green cards.
