Adjustment of Status

Proven New York Immigration Attorney with National Practice

We Can Help You with All Matters Related to an Adjustment of Status

If you are in the United States as a refugee, non-permanent resident, conditional entrant or asylum seeker, you may petition the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) for permanent residency status under a legal process known as “adjustment of status.” There are some restrictions on who can successfully obtain an adjustment of status. Furthermore, all adjustment of status applications have a number of steps and require careful attention to detail—if you miss one step, USCIS may cancel your application!
