At Kasturi Law, LLC, our Illinois immigration and nationality law attorney assists individuals with their green card applications, interviews, and consular processing to help ensure a smooth immigration journey to U.S. Citizenship.

The green card application process involves several steps, which can vary depending on the specific category you are applying for—including family-based, employment-based, asylum, and others.

Here’s an overview of the typical green card application process steps and how our immigration attorney can assist you at each stage, no matter where you live.

Green Card Immigration

How Can the Green Card Immigration Attorney at Kasturi Law Help with My Application?

The green card application process can be complex and involve multiple steps and requirements. Our immigration attorney can provide valuable assistance at every stage, from initial eligibility assessment to final approval, ensuring that your application is thorough, accurate, and timely and increasing your chances of a successful outcome.

That includes helping you:

  • Determine the appropriate category for your green card application.
  • Ensure you meet the eligibility requirements for your category.
  • File a Petition for:
    1. Family-Based: A U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident must file Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative.
    2. Employment-Based: Your employer must file Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker.
    3. Other Categories: Other categories have different forms, such as Form I-526 for investors.
  • Check the Visa Bulletin to see when your priority date becomes current, allowing you to proceed with the application.

If you are in the U.S., our skilled immigration attorney will file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. If you are outside the U.S., we will help you follow the consular processing steps through the National Visa Center (NVC).

The following steps in your green card application will include:

  • Attending a biometrics appointment to provide fingerprints, photos, and a signature.
  • If required, attend an interview with a S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officer.
  • For consular processing, attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate.

If approved, you will receive your green card.

Our skilled green car attorneys can advise on complex legal issues, such as prior immigration violations or criminal records. We can also help you respond to a Request for Evidence (RFE) or Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID) if additional information is needed. We can also assist with filing appeals or motions to reopen/reconsider if your application is denied.

At Kasturi Law, our immigration practice is driven by the desire to give a voice to those who most need it, including those pursuing green cards to become lawful permanent residents in the U.S.
