Employment Based Green Card

Green Card for Employment-Based Immigrants

In the United States, the law provides a number of ways for immigrants to earn lawful permanent residency through employment. This is what is often referred to as getting a Green Card. There are several employment-based (EB) “preference immigrant” categories that applicants may be eligible for. The three primary categories EB1, EB2, and EB3 are intended for individuals with exceptional abilities or skills certain fields of work, and those with advanced education who may or may not already be working in their field. There are two additional categories reserved for special situations such as religious workers, investors government employers and their families, and certain practicing physicians. Let the experts at Pilkington Immigration assist with filing your application.

The process of becoming a lawful permanent resident is know as “adjustment of status.” To be eligible to adjust status in most cases, you must be present in the United States after being “inspected and admitted” or “inspected and paroled” by an immigration officer.

There are some limited exceptions to this eligibility requirement. Pilkington Immigration can help you navigate the application requirements and possible exceptions as they may apply to your particular set of circumstances. We can also help advise you if you are not sure which category you fall under.
