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.

A Reputation of Excellence Our Success

    "Thank you all!"

    The attorneys and paralegals and their assistants at Akula Law in Dallas handled my immigration case for the US efficiently, with care and with attentive responses to questions. Katrina was our lawyer for the remaining few months of our case, originally started by Daniele. Also with Erika and Christie helping us, and despite COVID-19 I finally arrived in the US in June and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you all!

    "...Highly recommended and great law firm."
    I just want to take a moment and personally thanks Kavitha & Akula Law Firm for helping me out and getting through my complicated I140 case. It was a impossible case which Kavitha made it possible. As usual Kavitha's expertise has been phenomenal. I am very grateful to her. Because of her experience and professionalism in filing the I-485 it didn't even trigger an RFE or an interview request, it was a direct approval. And having Ambreen and other expert counsel members are really great to work with. They are prompt and very helpful. Ambreen, is so wonderful and have dealt so patiently and promptly with me during my I485 and the efforts she have put towards my application was at par. I was fortunate to work with Ambreen during this filing period. Highly recommended and great law firm.

    "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!

    "Timely response, dedication towards the work"

    We are an IT consulting firm. Kavitha helped us to get critical H1 case approvals and saved employees from running out of status which leads them to travel to their home country permanently. Timely response, dedication towards the work, having proper immigration knowledge, solving cases with logical thoughts, and the best team are the positives. Thanks!
