How To Get A Green Card If You’re An Illegal Alien

Home » How to Get a Green Card if You’re an Illegal Alien

If you or someone you love in an illegal immigrant in the United States, you probably have questions regarding the rights of a green card holder and the difference being a naturalized citizen versus a green card holder in the United States. At US Immigration Bonds & Insurance Services, we do more than nationwide immigration bonds and bond insurance services. We’re here to inform you about immigration in the United States as well and help you on the path to get a green card as an illegal alien and becoming a permanent resident.

Can You Get a Green Card If You’re an Illegal Immigrant?

Yes. It is possible to do so, but the process for getting a green card as an illegal immigrant can be difficult to do. There are a few different ways to get a green card as an illegal alien. These options are explained briefly, so you will want to get more in-depth information if you are looking to get your green card.

The first and perhaps most well-known way to getting a green card as an illegal immigrant is by marrying a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident. It may sound simple, but it is not. Once your marriage is legitimated, you can apply for a green card. But, because you are an illegal alien instead of being lawfully in the U.S., you may have some issues along the way. People who entered legally into the country but stayed longer than allowed may be able to apply for an adjustment of status and become approved for a green card. People who entered illegally have a much slimmer chance of being able to get a green card.

Another option to become a permanent resident as an illegal immigrant is to apply for asylum. If you meet all of the requirements and are approved, you may later apply for a green card.

If you or a loved one has been arrested by immigration authorities, you should first come to us for an ICE immigration bond. You can then attempt to apply for cancellation of removal. If your request is approved, you would receive a green card; however, you must meet strict requirements to do so.

You may also be able to skip getting a green card altogether and become a citizen if you serve in the U.S. military during a time of conflict, and you meet all of the specific requirements.

Because of the number of exceptions and the intricacies involved with immigration law, the best way to get a green card as an illegal alien is to talk to an experience immigration lawyer about your specific circumstances. Immigration laws are always changing, but hiring a lawyer is especially important under the Trump administration, due to an immigration-heavy agenda.

With help for immigration bonds from Texas to California, we pride ourselves on going that extra mile to help people of varying immigration statuses. We understand the challenges that immigrants face and how confusing the U.S. immigration process can be, so we want to help you as much as possible along the way to becoming a permanent resident.

US immigration bonds were absolutely the best they were super professional. When I was down and out when my husband was detained by immigration they were very caring , knowledgeable, and patient. I called them a thousand times and they were very empathic and helpful everytime I called. they reassures me that everything would be fine, and that they would help me my husband, and my children be reunited again. They did everything they could to get me a same day release. They exceeded my expectations. I would not recommend any company other than US immigration bonds. Us immigration bonds, under promises and over fulfills. They were a true blessing ! Thank you so much more

Jeremy Wolf and his agency have been a terrific resource for me as I delve into this foreign world of bonding a friend out of jail so he and his wife can work on his case on the "outside." Jeremy has been unfailingly polite and informative and his video regarding how to complete the necessary forms was a valuable tool too. The entire process was quick and relatively easy. I especially appreciated not having to deal with a jaded, impatient, figure--it-out-yourself kind of person when I was treading in really unfamiliar territory. My questions were always answered quickly and efficiently.I highly recommend this company in your time of need for quick, efficient and professional service with no attitude or more

Jeremy Wolf, is compassionate and understanding. He has been there and done it with his own family, and together with his wife they dedicate their time and energy into helping other families come together. I know this because my husband was taken by ICE and his bond was set much higher than I could have imagined, having in my hands at any given time. ... With Jeremy, his wife and the rest of the team we were able to piece together the required 80% and set up a affordable and convient payment plan. It was a grueling process, at times I felt like I was going to loose all my hair, as I ran around selling homemade tamales, and had various other fund raisers going on, along with my husband being detained, I lost my home, my dog and my daughter and I pushed forward with the help and support of Jeremy and his team, if It wasn't for there hours of help and dedication, to put a previous bond for my nephew into action to help my husband, we wouldn't have been able to have him home for the Holidays. ... To Jeremy, Veronica, and Amber, who I spoke with often, and the other parts of the team who I was unable to catch their names, I THANK YOU, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!read more
