The process for obtaining a green card falls under four legal options:
- Family unity, where a current green card holder or U.S. citizens files a petition for a qualifying relative.
- Labor certification for qualified workers where an employer looks outside of the United States labor market to hire and petition workers born abroad.
- The Diversity Visa Program, where citizens of underrepresented nations may obtain lawful permanent residency.
- Humanitarian relief, which permits the Immigration Court or United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to grant permanent residency to those fleeing persecution where an immigrant can prove they would suffer certain hardship if they stayed in their home country.
