Pursuing Adjustment of Status

For foreign citizens wishing to immigrate to the United States, a number of options are available to legally do so. One such method for individuals who have already been granted legal entry into the United States—without also being granted immigration status—is to petition for an adjustment of status. Through this process, it is possible for non-citizens living in the United States to gain permanent residency status and remain in the country.

Potential Immigrant Petitions

Typically, to qualify for the adjustment of status an individual must first have a petition for immigration filed on their behalf. Under most circumstances, an individual seeking an adjustment of status will file one of the following petitions to do so:

  • Form I-130: typically used for family-based immigration
  • Form I-140: typically used for employment-based immigration
  • Form I-360: typically used for special cases

When pursuing any of these petitions for immigration status, an experienced immigration lawyer may be critical to ensuring that you application is completed with all of the documentation that will be required for its acceptance. While this process may be pursued without an immigration lawyer, it may significantly reduce the amount of time and frustration associated with filing these petitions yourself.
