Question: The judge ordered that the parenting time for the mother of my granddaughter was canceled until she could establish a permanent residence. What constitutes a "permanent residence" in Arizona?

Answer:

Permanent residency refers to a person's visa status. A permanent residence is the process by which a person is granted a permission to reside and work in the United States on permanent basis. A person with such status is known as the permanent resident. This whole process is governed by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Service and it is same throughout the country.  A Permanent Resident Card, commonly known as “Green card” is a proof of your permanent resident status in the United States. You may be eligible to apply for a green card (permanent residence) in several different ways. Most individuals are sponsored by a relatives or an employer in the United States. Others may become permanent resident through the refugee status or asylum or other humanitarian programs. In some cases, you may be eligible to file on your behalf. The steps to become a permanent resident will vary by each category and will depend on whether you are currently residing in the Unites States or abroad.  The detailed information about the major categories and other information about the permanent resident card (green card) can be found here.
