Adjustment of Status in the U.S.

Get Adjustment Status Help from an NYC Immigration 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. The immigration lawyer Patricia M. Machado has more than 20 years of experience and a thorough understanding of the law. She can help you adjust your status.

Adjustment of Status Requirements

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 New York City immigration lawyer as soon as you can. Our firm is highly familiar with the adjustment of status process and we have successfully guided many clients through it to gain the rights and life that they came here for.

The steps for adjustment of status include:

  • Finding out if you’re eligible for a Green Card status.
  • Filing an immigration petition (can be done by you or on your behalf).
  • 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.
