Before proceeding Let us have an bird’s eye view about PERMANENT RESIDENCY
The person who has been granted authorization to live and work in the United States is said to be a Permanent resident. He can live as well as work in the US on a permanent basis. For the identity of such person, a special card is granted i.e. PERMANENT RESIDENT CARD, also known as a “Green Card”. A United States Permanent Resident Card (USCIS Form I-551), formerly Alien Registration Card or Alien Registration Receipt Card (INS Form I-151), is an identification card attesting to the permanent resident status of an alien in the United States. It is known informally as a Green Card because it had been green in color from 1946 until 1964, and it has reverted to that color since May 2010. Green card also refers to an immigration process of becoming a permanent resident. The green card serves as proof that its holder, a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR), has been officially granted immigration benefits, which include permission to reside and take employment in the USA. The holder must maintain permanent resident status, and can be removed from the United States if certain conditions of this status are not met.
Green card were formerly issued by the Immigration and Naturalization services. During a re-organization process, that agency was absorbed into and replaced by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration services, part of the Department of Homeland Security. Shortly after that re-organization, BCIS was renamed to the U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services, which will retain the responsibility for issuing green card.
Permanent residents of the United States eighteen years of age or older must carry their valid physical green card itself at all times. Failing to do so would be a violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act, carrying the possibility of a fine up to $100 and/or imprisonment for up to 30 days for each offense. Only the federal government can impose these penalties.
There are different ways of becoming Permanent Resident of the US:-
1.Permanent Residency through Relationship.
2.Permanent Residency through marriage to a US citizen.
3.Permanent Residency card through Fiance Visa.
4.Permanent Residency through Asylum.
