Adjustment of Status

Manhattan Adjustment of Status Lawyer

Get Adjustment Status Help From an Experienced Attorney

Through adjustment of status, you have the ability to apply for lawful permanent resident status —commonly known as a Green Card — during the time you are located in the United States. This can be a great option for individuals who are already in the country and want to avoid having to go back to a home country in order to finalize the visa process.

Who Qualifies for Adjustment of Status?

In order to qualify for adjustment of status, you must be physically in the United States and already be eligible for a green card, whether lawful permanent residence (LPR) or conditional residence via a family member who is a U.S. citizen or LPR or by having received asylum or refugee status at least 1 year prior.

There are additional requirements based on the circumstances of your situation as well. For example, if you entered the United States through a K-1 visa, to qualify for adjustment of status you must have already married the person who petitioned for you within the 90 days that your visa was valid. If you were married too late, you may still have an opportunity, but it may be best to speak with an experienced adjustment of status attorney. Attorney Patricia M. Machado has more than 24 years of experience and a thorough understanding of the law. Reach out for guidance on adjusting your immigration status.

What is the Adjustment of Status Process?

The steps for adjustment of status include:

  • Finding out if you’re eligible for a Green Card status.
  • Filing an immigration petition
  • Checking visa availability.
  • Filing an I-485 form.
  • Attending an appointment with the Application Support Center.
  • Attending an interview.
  • Adhering to an additional evidence request.
  • Checking the status of your case.
  • Receiving the decision.

If you are an individual who is not located in the United States, the process for applying for a Green Card differs and is referred to as consular processing. Our firm is able to help in both of these situations and we recommend that you get in touch with our lawyers as soon as you can. Our firm is highly familiar with the adjustment of status process.
