Adjustment of Status is a procedure allowing certain foreign nationals already in the U.S. to apply for immigrant status. Foreign nationals admitted to the U.S. in a nonimmigrant category may have their status changed to that of lawful permanent resident if they are eligible to receive an immigrant visa and one is immediately available.
Our office will prepare the petition package on your behalf to ensure it is as complete as required by USCIS. We will follow up with USCIS to make sure it is approved within the USCIS processing timeframe. If USCIS requests for additional evidence or documents, we will also help you prepare a complete package to respond to their request. In addition, we will prepare you and you and spouse for the interview with USCIS.
The waiting time required for the adjustment of status processing takes approximately 3-5 months at this time.
Please contact us for a list of required documents as the type of documents required will depend on the type of relationship between the petitioner and the applicant.
