Green Card Through Marriage Law and Legal Definition

:

Each year over 450,000 thousand United States citizens marry foreign-born individuals and seek to obtain permanent residency status or a Green Card for them in the United States. Spouses of U.S. citizens are considered "immediate relatives" under immigration laws; therefore they are excluded from all numerical quota limitations. This means that there is unlimited number of Green Cards available to the foreign nationals who marry U.S. citizens.
