US permanent residency: What to do about a legal status problem

You may have arrived in Florida on a temporary immigration visa of some kind. Such visas require that all eligibility factors be met before applying. They also expire. It is imperative that you take the proper steps for renewal if you hope to avoid legal status problems while living in the United States. In many cases, immigrants come here hoping to one day obtain a U.S. permanent residency card.

Also referred to as a green card, it means you have been granted permission to live and work in the U.S. on a permanent basis. Like other visas, green cards expire. In you have questions regarding how long a green card lasts or what you need to do to fulfill the requirements for application, it's always a good idea to speak with someone who is well-versed in the process.

Perhaps you have a family member or a close friend who has already successfully navigated the immigration system to obtain a green card. If you're worried about the renewal process, you'll want to talk to someone who understands all aspects of permanent residency and how to maintain it. An experienced immigration law attorney is a great source of support.
