Adjustment of Status: Why Do I Need It

Are you in the United States and have recently received the approval on your Family Petition? Perhaps your fiancé is coming to the United States with his K1 Visa approved and you are getting married soon; or you’ve found an amazing job and your boss wants to sponsor you! If that’s so, then you are in need of an Adjustment of Status.  

It is very important to be able to have a legal status in the U.S., and the Green Card is possibly one of the most sought-after immigration processes. The Adjustment of Status is the process you need to request a Green Card if you are in the United States.

For an Adjustment of Status, you will need to: 

  1. Confirm if you are eligible for a Green Card.

  2. If applicable, you or someone else must file an immigrant petition, or have an approved one.

  3. Have an immigrant visa immediately available to you.

  4. Fill out and file Form I-485 with the correct supporting evidence and filing fee.

  5. Complete your biometrics when requested by USCIS.

  6. You can check your case status online with your receipt number.

  7. Attend your adjustment of status interview, if requested by USCIS. 

  8. Wait for a decision.
