When an immigrant wishes to become a permanent resident of the United States, he or she must obtain a green card to legally live and work in the country. Once you successfully obtain a green card, you have two years in which to live and work in the United States, after which you can apply for permanent residency. After you are granted permanent residency, you have ten years in which to stay within the country’s borders. If you remain in good standing during the ten year period, you are able to renew your green card indefinitely. At any point during this process if you commit a crime, violate the law or your immigration status in any way, you are at risk of deportation to your home country.
