A green card may be obtained through a job offer. An immigration lawyer can walk you through the process of applying for a green card, which is also known as permanent residency. If you’re already living in the U.S., your employer will need to petition for you by submitting Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker. Once this document is approved, your immigration lawyer can help you submit Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.
Along with this application, you’ll need to submit certain documents to successfully achieve U.S. immigration via a job offer. You’ll need to submit the job offer letter, two color photos that were taken within 30 days, Form I-94, Form G-325A, and Form I-693. Your prospective employer will also need to submit Form I-864, Affidavit of Support. If you’re living outside the U.S. when you apply for U.S. immigration with a job offer, you’ll need to go through consular processing to obtain a visa.
