LPR Status Law and Legal Definition

LPR Status refers to lawful permanent resident status. In the U.S., an LPR Status person is entitled to reside permanently and work in the country. Evidence of LPR status is a valid and unexpired Form I-551 Stamp in the Alien's foreign passport or the Form I-551 Alien Registration Card.

In the U.S., a person with LPR status has no general right to vote. Additionally, a person with LPR status who is convicted and sentenced to a serious criminal felony, or certain crimes of moral turpitude, or certain serious misdemeanors involving domestic violence, controlled substances or firearms can be subject to deportation or removal.
