Applying for a Green Card

To apply for a Green Card replacement, you will need to submit a form I-90 to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You will also need to pay a filing fee, which is currently $455.

It is important to note that you can only apply for a Green Card replacement if your original card was lost, stolen, or damaged. If your card has expired, you will need to apply for a new one by completing form I-912.

Once you have submitted your form and fee, USCIS will review your application and may require you to attend an interview. If everything is in order, they will issue you a new Green Card.

Renewing or Replacing a Green Card

If you are a lawful permanent resident (green card holder), you may travel outside the United States and return using your green card. If your green card is lost or stolen, you should get a replacement as soon as possible. You will need to replace your green card if it has been expired for more than one year, or will expire within six months. You will also need to replace your green card if it has been damaged, or if any of the information on your card has changed (name, address, etc.).

To renew or replace your green card, you will need to submit an application along with supporting documentation to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Once your application is approved, you will be issued a new green card and will be able to continue living and working in the United States.

Applying for a Green Card After Marriage

If you are married to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you can apply for a Green Card to live and work permanently in the United States. This is known as “getting your Green Card through marriage.”

The process of applying for a Green Card through marriage is divided into two parts:

1. The foreign national spouse applies for a Green Card (also known as an immigrant visa) from a U.S. consulate or embassy abroad. This is known as “consular processing.”

2. Once the foreign national spouse enters the United States, he or she will apply for a Green Card with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This is known as “adjustment of status.”

Applying for a Green Card After Divorce

If you are a permanent resident of the United States and you have recently been divorced, you may be wondering if you need to get a new green card. The answer is not always clear cut, as there are a few different scenarios that could apply in your situation.

If your green card was issued in your maiden name and you have not changed your name since getting married, then you do not need to get a new green card. However, if your green card was issued in your married name and you have since divorced and changed your name back to your maiden name, then you will need to get a new green card.

If you obtained your green card through your spouse but the divorce was finalized before you had been married for two years, then you will need to get a new green card. However, if the divorce was finalized after you had been married for two years or more, then you will not need to get a new green card.

It is important to note that even if you do not need to get a new green card, you should update your information with the USCIS so that they have your most current address and contact information on file.

Applying for a Green Card for a Child

If you are a permanent resident of the United States, you may apply for a Green Card for your child. To do so, you will need to file an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative. This form is used to establish the relationship between you and your child.

In order to file an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative, you must be a permanent resident of the United States with a valid Green Card. You will also need to provide proof of your relationship to your child, such as a birth certificate or adoption papers. Additionally, you will need to provide evidence that you can support your child financially.

Once you have filed an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative, your child will be able to apply for a Green Card. If your child is under the age of 21 and unmarried, they will be able to apply for a Green Card through what is known as “ derivation.” This means that they will be able to receive the same status as you, the parent. If your child is over the age of 21 or married, they will need to apply for a Green Card through “ Adjustment of Status .”

It is important to note that if you are applying for a Green Card for your child who is under the age of 21 and unmarried, they will need to have their own individual Form I-130 filed on their behalf.

Applying for a Green Card for a Parent

If you are a U.S. citizen and your parent is a foreign national, you may be able to help your parent apply for a green card (permanent residence). There are two ways to do this:

1. If your parent is currently living outside the United States, you can file a petition for him or her under the Family Sponsorship program.

2. If your parent is already living in the United States on a temporary basis, you can file a petition for him or her to adjust status to permanent residency.

To file a petition for your parent, you will need to prove that you are a U.S. citizen and that you have a legitimate relationship with your parent (e.g., through birth or marriage). You will also need to show that your parent meets the eligibility requirements for permanent residence in the United States. Once you have filed the petition, your parent will need to go through an interview process with US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in order to obtain a green card.

Applying for a Green Card for a Sibling

If your sibling is a U.S. citizen, they may file a petition for you to get a green card. If your sibling is a permanent resident, they may file a petition for you to get a green card if they’ve been living in the United States for at least 2 years.

To apply, your sibling will need to file Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. Once the form is approved, you can apply for a green card through adjustment of status or consular processing.

If you’re applying for a green card through adjustment of status, you will need to file Form I-485, Application to Adjust Status. If you’re applying for a green card through consular processing, you will need to interview with a consular officer at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad.

Applying for a Green Card for a Family Member

If you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) of the United States, you may apply for a Green Card for a family member. The first step is to file an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The I-130 petition is filed by the US citizen or LPR sponsor. Once USCIS approves the petition, it will be sent to the National Visa Center (NVC) for processing. The NVC will then contact the sponsor and applicant to begin scheduling an interview at a U.S. consulate or embassy abroad.

At the interview, a consular officer will determine whether the applicant is eligible for an immigrant visa. If so, the visa will be issued and the applicant can enter the United States as an LPR.

Applying for a Green Card for a Friend

If you are a permanent resident of the United States, you may apply for a Green Card for a friend. The Green Card is also known as the Permanent Resident Card. It allows the holder to live and work permanently in the United States.

To apply for a Green Card for your friend, you will need to file an I-131 form with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This form is also known as the Application for Travel Document.

You will need to provide evidence that you are a permanent resident of the United States, and that your friend meets the eligibility requirements to be a Green Card holder. You will also need to provide evidence of your relationship with your friend.

Once you have filed the I-131 form, USCIS will review your application and make a decision. If approved, USCIS will send your friend a Green Card.

Applying for a Green Card for a Business Partner

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offers a Green Card Replacement for business partners who wish to travel. This is a special type of Green Card that allows the holder to travel in and out of the United States for business purposes.

To apply for a Green Card Replacement, you will need to submit an application form along with supporting documents. The application and supporting documents must be sent to the USCIS office that serves your area. You should expect to receive a decision on your application within 90 days.
