What is an Adjustment of Status?

Adjustment of Status is the process that you can use to apply for lawful permanent resident status when you are present in the United States. This means that you may get a Green Card without having to return to your home country to complete visa processing.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for adjustment of status, an individual must:

  • Have been inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States
  • Be eligible to receive an immigrant visa
  • Must not be inadmissible to the United States
