Apply for a green card with our help
For tax reasons, green cards are not always the most desirable option. This is where our global capability comes in, as we can provide information on alternative solutions to best suit your personal and financial needs.
What is a green card?A green card gives you permanent residence in the US, meaning that you have indefinite leave to remain in the country. You will normally have the right to work as a permanent resident but are not yet a full citizen. A naturalisation process will need to take place once you have obtained your green card. Our lawyers will support you from start to finish, helping you apply for US citizenship in full, and assisting with all legal matters before and after the naturalisation period.
Supporting global citizens with immigrationWhether you need to apply for permanent residence in the US, UK or anywhere else in the world, our global network is here to support you. With offices located across the continents, we've been able to help thousands of clients navigate the immigration system, successfully relocating them and their families in their chosen destination.
Our lawyers are unparalleled with their knowledge of the green card application process, and they excel in complicated or unusual cases for clients looking to apply for permanent residence in another country. An example of this is when we helped a client attain UK permanent resident status on an exceptional basis, when he had greatly exceeded the permitted level of absences.
Whether you need help understanding how to get a green card or permanent residence in a country of your choice, Withers can be of assistance.
