Adjustment of Status

Adjustment of Immigration Status Attorney

An adjustment of status for a green card is a procedure allowing an eligible person to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States while remaining in the country and circumventing the need for an immigrant visa.

Eligibility for an adjustment of status depends on the visa that allows you to live in the United States. The categories that will enable a person to pursue an adjustment of status include:

  • Employment
  • Family
  • Refugee or asylum
  • Special programs (including humanitarian causes)

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 to finalize the visa process.

If you intend to adjust to immigrant status, you must be physically present in the U.S. and must have legally entered the U.S.
