When does permanent resident time begin?



It starts with the date when the corresponding status was acquired. In case you wonder where you may find the date – it can be found on your green card. Look for where it says “Resident Since:” right at the bottom.

You should not be misled by the fact that the Resident Since data does not coincide with the very same date when the card was delivered. For instance, in case you have an embassy of America in the country you are staying in, you will get the card there – then the green card is delivered to your USA address so that the dates coincide.

However, in case you do not possess the card, you can figure out your permanent resident date using some other documents.

A Form I-797 Notice of Action or consular letter – those are the types of documents that can give you a clue about the start of your residentship date. The truth is that the date on such a letter can be considered the precise date you need.

I wanted to get political asylum in the United States, but I realized that it was not so easy. I was ready for the fact that I would have to collect a whole bunch of documents and answer many questions, but this did not stop me. The only obstacle for me was a complete lack of understanding where to start. I accidentally found Usa-immigrations.com on the Internet. All the information you need is there. I easily found and downloaded the form I needed, and also learned the entire list of required documents.

A very useful site for those who want to leave for America and do not know what documents need to be collected and how to arrange everything correctly. I had to face such a problem and I was able to solve it thanks to the site Usa-immigrations.com. All the information gathered here is not only useful, but also very necessary. In addition, the site staff constantly update it, so it is absolutely reliable.

It is not an easy task to issue documents to travel to the USA. Even if you know their entire list, that's not all. To obtain a visa, you must fill out the forms and if even a minor mistake is made, they will be returned to you. At Usa-immigrations.com there is more than a list of documents and forms that can be easily downloaded. Each form is accompanied by detailed instructions on how to fill it out correctly. It is very convenient. I liked the site very much, it is simple and easy to use.

I have been living in America with my family for a long time and am a citizen of this country. I decided to lure my mother to her. I began to find out what documents are needed for this. One friend advised the site Usa-immigrations.com, said that it had all the necessary information. Indeed, here I found out what documents are required. I needed to complete a Form I-130. I also found it on this site and downloaded it. Thanks to the instructions for filling it out, I was able to quickly complete everything and send the documents for consideration.
