Michigan Green Card Lawyer

Applying for Permanent Residence

A wide variety of people are eligible to become permanent residents of the U.S., which is often called having a "green card." While many people live for years or even decades in the U.S. as permanent residents, others would prefer to be U.S. citizens. If you are wondering how to become a U.S. citizen or green card holder, an experienced Michigan green card attorney can answer your questions and evaluate your individual situation.

A green card allows an immigrant to live and work in the United States for the rest of his or her life. For most people, having a green card is a required first step to U.S. citizenship. At the law office of Richard W. Pierce, P.C., we have been helping individuals in Michigan and throughout the United States obtain green cards since 1982.

When clients contact our firm, we assist them with every step of the process. We gather the documents they need, review whether their immigration is employment-based or family-based, and help them understand what steps must be completed at each step of their processes.

The Importance of Hiring an Attorney

The immigration and nationality laws in the United States are complex. The process of obtaining the correct type of visa for your situation is confusing. By working with our firm, you have the benefit of knowing your application will be completed and filed correctly. With more than 25 years of legal experience, we understand the complex requirements that accompany getting a green card. We explain to clients what they need to do to receive their green cards, and help them understand if there are any weaknesses in their applications.

Green card applications are often not always approved the first time they are submitted. Working with a lawyer helps ensure your application is as close to perfect as possible the first time around. We understand all the details that must be followed and can help ensure your application has the appropriate supporting documents.
