When Would A Green Card Application Generally Be Denied?
There are several different types of green card applications. The most common type of green card application is one based on employment and the second most common is based on a family benefit, which would be an immediate relative United States citizen sponsoring a relative or spouse. The reasons for a denial on an employment based application would be that the employer was sponsoring someone for a job that was a skilled job and that employee was actually not qualified for the job. The other reason would be that the employer doesn’t have enough money to pay the immigrant a competitive wage.
On a family based application, one reason that they would be denied is if they found that the marriage was not a valid marriage. In addition, a green card could be denied if someone had an invalid entry into the United States. They could also be denied, if the sponsoring US citizen didn’t have enough income to assure that the relative would not become a public charge and go on some sort of public assistance.
Is There Anything I Can Do If My Green Card Application Has Been Denied?
There is a green card application appeal process. The first step would be that you would make an immediate appeal to the USCIS saying that their decision to deny your green card was incorrect. Then, USCIS will look at your application again. They’ll review it and if they determine that it is actually a valid denial, you’re permitted to make a second appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals. That would be then assigned to a three-judge panel, who could review it as well. If the Board of Immigration Appeals were to deny it, there is another venue that you can appeal to.

In addition, that card is typically good for one year and then, when you’re granted your green card, you are permitted to work, have a Social Security number, and drive.
