How to Become a U.S. Permanent Resident

There are a few different ways for applying for U.S. permanent residence, where you would obtain what is known as a Green Card. The most common way to get a Green Card would be through one of two methods:

  1. Family-Based Immigration
  2. Employment-Based Immigration

Family Based Petitions or Family Sponsorships

Depending on your situation, you may be eligible to apply for a U.S. Green Card using a family-based petition for having relatives living in the U.S. as U.S. Citizens or Green Card holders. Certain family members may be eligible to sponsor or petition you for a Green Card.

Employment-Based Petitions for a Green Card

You may have a U.S. employer who is willing to petition for you to become a permanent resident of the States. In this case, most applicants are usually already in the U.S. on a valid U.S. work visa such as an L-1 visa or an H-1B visa.

These Green Card applications are called employment-based petitions and usually involve filing an I-140 application to the Service Centre located in the jurisdiction of the place of employment.

Applying for PR can be a daunting task. I remember going on various websites during my research period and being so overwhelmed with the number of forms, and directions on how, when, where to send them. It was a great comfort and relief to me knowing that I could rely on someone else, an expert, like Lauren to help me. Lauren worked on my PR application and it has been excellent experience. She saved me a lot of time and stress, she respond quickly to whatever questions and concerns I have. I can truly recommend her and the team @Niren. Thank you

Having had a bad experience with a different immigration consultant in Toronto, we ended up working with Lauren Shannan and her team at Niren and Associates on our PR application, and couldn't be more satisfied. Lauren was extremely patient, reassuring and knowledgeable. She was very prompt with responding to all of our questions with clear answers and recommendations. She also followed up with the immigration authorities as needed. Lauren and team were a pleasure to work with, and we would recommend their services.
