Las Vegas Adjustment of Status Lawyers

“Adjustment of status” refers to the process that can be used to apply for U.S. lawful permanent residency status. This is commonly known as applying for a green card. This process is generally available to those who are present in the U.S. with a valid visa. This process permits you to obtain a green card without having to leave the U.S. for your home country and go through visa processing there. 

Applying for a green card can be confusing and requires complying with all of the requirements including the right forms, supporting documentation, an interview, and fees. To increase your chances of success, it is highly recommended that you work with an experienced immigration lawyer. At Heras Law Firm, we have successfully helped countless individuals apply for green cards. We can assist you in navigating this process to give you the best chance of approval.

The Adjustment of Status Process

The adjustment of status process turns you as a visa-holder into the holder of a green card. The basic requirements for the process to begin are that you entered and are presently residing in the U.S. lawfully, that you have complied with all of the terms of your visa and that you are qualified to obtain a green card. You may have been sponsored to enter the U.S. through your family or employer or under other categories, such as a refugee, through asylum, or through some other category. 

In order to apply, it is necessary to find out whether a visa is available to you in your immigration category in the year in which you apply. Immediate relatives of U.S. citizens, such as spouses, children, and parents do not have to wait for a visa number. Fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens can also immediately apply once they have married within 90 days of entering the U.S. Immigrants in other categories will be subject to a limited number of visas available on a yearly basis. Adjustment of status is filed with Form I-485 and other forms. 

If you are not eligible to apply for an adjustment of status, you may be able to pursue a green card by returning to your home country and going through consular processing at a U.S. consulate. Immigration courts have ultimate authority over whether you are approved or not in obtaining lawful permanent residency status.  

Advantages of a Green Card

Many advantages exist for those with green cards. Lawful permanent residency is the first step towards being able to apply for U.S. citizenship. It also allows you to work, own property, sponsor other family members into the U.S., receive educational aid, and serve in the military.
