Adjustment of Status and your Green Card While in the US
An individual who is already in the United States on an immigration visa will file a Form I-485 adjustment of status in order to get a Green Card (Permanent Residence). Your eligibility may be based on sponsorship by an employer, family based, or your status as a Refugee or Asylee.
If you are applying based on your relationship with a US Citizen spouse; US parent or child may file the Application for Adjustment of Status to Permanent Residence at the same time the Immigrant Petition is submitted. Please contact us before filling for Adjustment because, depending on the category, you may be eligible for “concurrent filing”. Immediate Relatives of US Citizens may be able to file concurrently.
