WHAT IS PERMANENT RESIDENCE?
Permanent residency is a lawful status in the United States that allows you to live, work, and travel freely, as long as you agree to make the U.S. your permanent home. However, there are limitations to permanent resident status and individuals can loose that status through abandonment or if a judge orders it taken from you.

The most common way is applying through a family member with either adjustment of status or consular processing.
