GREEN CARD THROUGH REFUGEE OR ASYLEE STATUS
One year after being admitted into the United States, a refugee must apply for his or her Green Card. Asylees are not required to do so after one year, but it could benefit them to do so.
Comfortably Access Your Case
Excellent Services for your $
Not only can refugees apply for a green card one year after coming to the United States, they are actually required by law to do so. Asylees can apply for a green card one year after being granted asylum status and qualifying family members of an asylee can apply for his or her green card one year after entering the U.S. Asylees are not required by law to apply for a green card at any time, however, it could be beneficial to do so. Your asylum status and your right to stay in the U.S. permanently could change if conditions in your home country change or if a change in circumstances causes you to no longer qualify for asylum.
Who is Eligible?
As a refugee, you must apply for your green card 1 year after being allowed into the U.S. if:
- You have been in the U.S. for a minimum of 1 year after your entry
- Your refugee admission has not been terminated
- You have not already obtained a green card
As an asylee, you can apply for your green card 1 year after being given asylum if:
- You have been in the U.S. for a minimum of 1 year after being given asylum
- You still satisfy the requirements for asylee status, or the spouse or child of an asylee
- You have not forfeited your asylee status
- You have not resettled in another country
- You have remained admissible to the U.S., or have an inadmissibility waiver

She was perfect! It was such a luck to have Julia Greenberg referred to me by my acquaintance. She is the most caring and helpful attorney I have ever worked with. She is very professional and knowledgeable in the immigration law, and she gave me great advice! I appreciate most that she is always available by phone or returns missed calls shortly – this is something that many attorneys in NYC do not do or have their assistants do who never give the correct answer. I approached Julia to help me prepare for my citizenship interview since I had, frankly speaking, not an easy case, and she did the best job I could expect. I could not imagine how my interview would have gone without her; her support was significant! If I ever have a question about any immigration matter I would definitely ask Julia for help again. Awesome
