Adjustment of Status

What is Adjustment of Status?

Adjustment of Status allows nonimmigrants to apply for permanent residency while inside the US by filing Form I-485. Unlike the "Immigrant Visa" process, Adjustment of Status does not require “Consular Processing” at a US embassy or consulate abroad and allows the applicant to move from nonimmigrant status to permanent resident status without returning to their home country. At the end of the process, the applicant will receive a green card which gives them travel and work authorization in the US. In most cases, an interview to determine the applicant’s eligibility and to verify the relationship between the petitioner and beneficiary will be scheduled at the USCIS field office nearest the applicant’s home before the green card is granted.
