Green cards are a proof of status and must be renewed. If you have been granted conditional residence you can make an application to remove the conditions two years later. In order to initially obtain lawful permanent resident status, some of the factors that must be considered are:
- How you entered the country
- Whether your status was maintained properly throughout the entire time you were in the United States
- If you ever lied to or omitted information to an immigration official
These factors determine whether or not you are inadmissible under 212-A of the Immigration and Nationality Act and also include issues regarding health related grounds, criminal backgrounds, prior immigration violations or security grounds. When you meet with our experienced Cleveland green card attorney, we encourage you to bring all documentation that can help us understand your personal history, employment history, criminal record, and other factors that may affect whether you are eligible for a green card visa petition being granted and eventually citizenship.
In some cases, we are able to get a waiver from USCIS on these issues and if USCIS denies the waiver, foreign nationals have the right to appeal the decision to the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO).There are no waivers available when people falsely claim to be a citizen and are not.
