Adjustment of Status

We have a highly qualified team to advise, guide and attend your process in the most professional, fast and efficient way possible. You can have the peace of mind of having a group of professionals who will work each case as yours. Here’s how the process works and some of the requirements to qualify.

Adjustment of status is the process by which you can apply for lawful permanent resident status (also known as applying for a Green Card) when present in the United States. This means that you can obtain a Green Card without having to return to your home country to complete visa processing.

You may be eligible for adjustment of status if you are:

  • Immediate relative of an American citizen (Spouse, Children under 21 years of age and Parents)
  • Widow or widower of a US citizen and you were married to your US citizen spouse at the time of your death.
  • Spouse of a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident victim of domestic violence
  • Abused child (unmarried and under 21 years of age) of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident
  • Parent of a US citizen (victim of domestic violence)
  • You are a beneficiary of an employment-based petition
  • Immigrant investor
  • Religious Worker
  • A child who has been abused, abandoned or neglected by his parents and you have Special Immigrant Juvenile (SIJ) status
  • National of Afghanistan or Iraq
  • Worker in the US as members of the media
  • Asylum beneficiary for at least 1 year
  • Admitted as a refugee for at least 1 year
  • Victim of human trafficking and crime


In order to determine your eligibility to adjust status while residing in the United States, it is necessary for our team to evaluate your case. It is important to put your case in responsible and professional hands, since adjustment of status cases can end in deportation proceedings if they are not carried out in the correct way.
