The process of trying to get a U.S. green card generally involves filling out a fair amount of forms. While completing such forms can sometimes feel like a tedious task, it is important to not underestimate how important it is to fill out such forms properly.
When a person desires a U.S. green card, their options for seeking one vary based on their situation. Some individuals are able to self-petition for a green card. Others can only seek a green card through being sponsored by someone else.
Individuals who have received an unfavorable decision in their U.S. immigration case, such as an application denial, have, in most instances, the right to bring an administrative appeal. However, this right does not last forever. Rather, there are strict deadlines for requesting such an appeal.
There are many requirements that a U.S. permanent resident who wishes to become a U.S. citizen has to meet in order to qualify for the naturalization process.

As a note, there are certain U.S. permanent residents who can qualify for a different set of naturalization criteria than the general set. One such type of permanent residents are permanent residents who are married to U.S. citizens.
