Determine if you are eligible for permanent residence. Green Card Eligibility http://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/green-card-eligibility
Adjusting your status to a permanent resident is the process used by immigrants to get a green card while in the United States. To those who are outside the United States, your application will be processed at a Consular Office.
When applying for a green card through employment, family or as a special immigrant, you may need to have a petition filed for you. Concurrent filing is generally when the immigrant petition is filed at the same time you file your application to get a green card.
In general, there must be a visa available for you before you can apply for a green card.
Prepare documents you may be asked to submit or present when you apply for a green card: travel documents, Employment Authorization Document, Immigration Medical Examinations, Affidavit of Support, Public Charge.
