How to Apply for an Adjustment of Immigration Status

Adjustments of status can be helpful to obtain a green card or permanent residency. It can provide additional time in the United States and grant new rights. Some common examples are using a student visa to pursue education, change your job or start a business with an employment visa, applying after a year of asylum status, or be eligible for permanent residency following your engagement to a United States citizen.

The most common method of adjusting one's immigration status is via Form I-485, which allows immigrants to apply for a green card. This form will ask for information on the immigrant's date of last entry into the United States, basis of eligibility for a green card, and personal information about the immigrant's martial history, children, and parents. Additionally, Form I-485 will ask about any grounds of inadmissibility or ineligibility to adjust your status.

You may not be eligible for an adjustment of status if:

  • You have a criminal conviction
  • You did not comply with your current visa
  • You were in the Visa Waiver Program
  • You were in transit through the United States

In filling out Form I-485, you will be required to provide different forms of documentation depending on your individual immigration situation. You may be required to provide a medical examination sheet, evidence of criminal convictions, your birth certificate, or your passport.

If you are already in the United States, have a valid visa, and are eligible to apply for a green card, our law firm can help you file an adjustment of status. If you have any questions, it is in your best interest to contact our immigration attorneys in Hamilton, OH.

What to Do If Your Adjustment of Status Is Denied

If your adjustment of status application is denied by USCIS, you can find yourself at risk for removal from the country. USCIS will send a written notification detailing the reason for your denial. You can request that USCIS review its decision or reapply for the adjustment of status.

If you've found your application has been denied, it is best to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to help correct any errors and avoid potential deportation proceedings.
