Permanent resident (“green card”) applications are filed for either employment-based categories or family-based categories. Miller Mayer has decades of experience with both and we proudly represent families in their immigration journeys. Miller Mayer immigration attorney Kristal Ozmun recently received an approval of a green card and I-130 petition for a Pakistani spouse of a U.S. citizen. These petitions were approved in less than 10 months. Spouses of U.S. citizens are immediately eligible to pursue a green card with the submission of their I-130 petition. If you have an immigrant relative for whom you would like to petition to help them obtain permanent resident status in the United States, please consult with a Miller Mayer attorney regarding next steps.
