Legal Permanent Residents in Dallas

Dallas-Based Immigration Attorneys for Green Card Holders

A legal permanent resident is a non-U.S. citizen who has the right to live and work in the United States permanently. Foreign nationals living abroad who want to relocate permanently to the United States can obtain permanent residency status through a variety of ways.

Foreign nationals can gain permanent residency status through:

  • An immediate relative of the Petitioner who is a U.S. citizen
  • A family member of the U.S. citizen Petitioner that fits into a preference category
  • An employer who is filing on behalf of an individual as an employee
  • Becoming an investor by investing at least $1,000,000 or $500,000 in an area of high unemployment or rural area.

For individuals already inside the United States, you can apply for an adjustment of status which will allow you to change your status without having to return to your home country. If you are outside of the United States, you will undergo consular processing.

Obtaining a Permanent Visa

  • U.S. relatives must file Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. The application will require an original I-130, supporting documentation and USCIS filing fees. (Employers must file a labor certification and Form I-140).
  • Upon the I-130 Petition approval a visa number for the Petition will be assigned. The Beneficiary can then apply for an Adjustment of Status through Form I-485 if he or she is legally in the U.S. or proceed with Consular Processing, if abroad.

The Dallas immigration attorneys at Akula & Associates have significant experience in immigration matters and can assist you with your application for any visa.

    "This firm was the ONLY firm that gave me hope"
    I want to thank Akula & Associates for helping me adjust my status. After seeing many law firms in the Dallas area, this firm was the ONLY firm that gave me hope. I was able to adjust my status in record time. I want to especially thank lawyer Kathy Brady for working hard on my case. She was very patient and hard working. She was the only one that gave me hope when many other lawyers didn’t. Thank you again!

    "The entire process through Akula law firm was easy and stress-free"
    I recently had the pleasure to work with Akula & Associates on an Eb-5 application and have to approve them as the go-to law firm for EB5 . I worked with Kavitha Akula, and was impressed by her immense expertise and knowledge on the EB 5 process. She and her team were available at every step to navigate through the EB-5 process, especially to get the appropriate documents from India. I was able to apply for the EB-5 Visa in a timely manner, and the entire process through Akula law firm was easy and stress-free. Kudos to Akula & Associates.

    "I truly love their staff!"
    My journey started with Akula & Associates exactly 10 months ago. Came to know about them through a friend, casually called, impressed with their profile and signed up contract for services. Last 10 months we filed several cases and each case they treat like a completely new customer and examine each document thoroughly, advise and make us on top of the things. I truly say sincere THANKS for their great service. I truly love their staff. My paralegal Yezenia is awesome, attorney Toki is wonderful. Yet to work more with GC team, Shirin and Christie, great work experience so far. Last but not least Attorney Kavitha is Great!!! I hope I get the same level of service for me and employees for coming years!!! Good luck to Akula & Associates !!

    "I am consistently impressed by Ms. Akula’s knowledge"
    I recommend Akula & Associates, P.C. to information technology companies needing diligent immigration services. Whether it be an Department of Labor investigation, ICE investigation or a site visit from USCIS they have always come through with excellent representation for our company. Unlike other immigration law firm merely doing visa processing, Akula & Associates offer many other services to IT companies such as debt collection, litigation, patents and trademark fillings. I am consistently impressed by Ms. Akula’s knowledge of immigration law and her prompt follow through.
