Family Members of Lawful Permanent Residents (Green Card Holders)


Green Card through Family Members

You can become a permanent resident of the U.S. based on the fact that you have a certain relative who is green card holder (spouse or parent).

The New V Nonimmigrant Visa Category

The V nonimmigrant visa category allows spouses of lawful permanent residents and the children of those spouses to travel to and from the U.S. and to reside in the U.S. while they wait for the final completion of their immigration process.

The V visa is available to you if your green card petition was filed on or before December 21, 2000 and three or more years elapsed since the filing.
