Most people in Washington, DC are aware of the role that the topic of immigration has held in national discourse over the last several years. Despite both political parties wanting reform, it seems that neither can come to an agreement over what appropriate reform should entail. Along these lines, President Trump has recently proposed a change that would impact how green cards are awarded.
Many people living in Washington, D.C. and other areas of the country spent years longing for better lives. They ultimately make the move to the United States in hopes of a new start that will allow them to live a happier, more fulfilling life. Unfortunately, the processes that govern whether a person can earn and keep a green card, thus allowing the individual to be a permanent resident can often be overwhelming.
For many people, the United States represents opportunity to lead a happier, safer, and more fulfilling life. For this reason, individuals may seek lawful permanent residence, also known as a Green Card, here in the U.S. Potential immigrants should be aware, though, that it can be a lengthy and complicated process to reach this goal and create a new life in Washington, DC or other areas of the country.
Here in Washington, DC, we often meet potential clients who hold G-4 visas who, after years here in the U.S., are interested in transitioning to lawful permanent residence. One way we recommend obtaining their Green Cards is through a self-petition as an EB-2 Professional with an Advanced Degree and National Interest Waiver (NIW).
