Family Based Green Card
The United States is dedicated to promoting family unity, which is why U.S. immigration law allows for citizens and lawful permanent residents to petition for qualified relatives. Under the U.S. family green card process, foreign nationals who have successfully immigrated to the United States can apply for their loved ones to come and live permanently in the U.S. as a lawful permanent resident, or ‘green card holder’. Family-based (FB) is one of the most widely-used methods of obtaining permanent residency in the United States. It can be filed either by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
