Things to Know About Getting a Green Card in Gainesville, FL

A green card permits applicants to live and work permanently in the United States. This document is also known as a permanent resident card and is valid for 10 years. After that period, cardholders must renew it. They can remain permanent residents unless they:

  • Apply to become a U.S. citizen, or
  • Lose or abandon their permanent residency status

There are many kinds of green cards. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) explains the categories on its website. These categories include applying for a green card through family or an employment arrangement. Applicants who are special immigrants, abuse survivors, human trafficking and crime survivors, or refugees or asylees can also seek to obtain green card status.

If you are unsure which one to apply for, our Gainesville immigration lawyers will advise you of the category you are eligible for and explain its requirements. 

Green Card Holders Have Protected Rights and Responsibilities to Uphold

In addition to receiving the right to live in the U.S. permanently, green card recipients have other rights under the law, such as the following:

  • They can sponsor eligible family members who also want to settle in the U.S.
  • They can apply to become a U.S. citizen after three or five years.
  • They can live, work, and travel within the U.S.
  • They can access medical care, educational programs, and federal student financial aid.
  • They have protections under their state, municipality, and federal laws.

Anyone granted a green card must also:

  • File their federal and state tax returns
  • Abide by all state, local, and federal laws, rules, and regulations
  • Register with the Selective Service if they are a male between ages 18 to 25

Can Green Card Holders Vote in U.S. Elections?

No, only U.S. citizens can vote. Green card holders, also known as legal permanent residents (LPRs), also cannot commit crimes or violate laws. If they do, they can be deported under 8 USC § 1227 under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Green card holders also cannot live outside the United States past one year.

Our attorneys can advise you on other things LPRs can and cannot do once they obtain permanent resident status.
