Do you know who's eligible for a green card based on marriage? We asked Virginia lawyer Sam McTyre for this AskTheLawyers Quick Question.
The green card is offered to spouses of US citizens and lawful permanent residents. Those classifications are based on immediate relatives for US citizens married to a foreign spouse, and the second preference is available to the spouse of a lawful permanent resident. So those are the two categories that are eligible for a green card based on marriage.
