Are there other ways to become a permanent resident besides through family?

by Blake P. Somers, Lawyer Referral Service Panelist

Yes, there are a different variety of ways to become a permanent resident such as special immigrant petitions, work petitions, registry and/or other special petitions, and asylees/refugees. This last category is another circumstance where travel restrictions are potentially in effect for the permanent resident as is it is generally unacceptable for a person who gained permanent residency based on asylum or refugee status to return to their country from which they are claiming a fear of return.
