Adjustment of Status

Baltimore Adjustment of Status Attorneys

Adjustment of Status in U.S. immigration law refers to the process by which certain non-U.S. citizens who are already present in the United States can apply for lawful permanent residency, resulting in a green card. This process allows you to change your immigration status from a temporary nonimmigrant status to lawful permanent residency. 

At Griffith Immigration Law, we have been helping people born in countries worldwide to secure green cards that allow them to live and work permanently in this country. Whether you are here on a nonimmigrant visa through employment or family connections, our team can help you better understand and navigate the complexities of the U.S. immigration system.

Consult a Baltimore Adjustment of Status lawyer about your case by calling our office at (410) 883-9157 or through our online contact form. Hablamos español. 

Requirements for Adjustment of Status

Requirements for Adjustment of Status may vary depending on the specific immigrant category and visa type you currently hold. 

Generally, to proceed with the process, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Eligibility Category: You must fall under an eligible immigrant category, such as family-based immigration, employment-based immigration, refugee or asylee status, or other special categories.
  • Valid Immigration Status: You must have entered the United States legally and have maintained a valid nonimmigrant status.
  • Admissibility: You should not have grounds for inadmissibility, such as criminal convictions, immigration violations, or public health concerns.

The Adjustment of Status Process

The process of seeking a green card through an Adjustment of Status involves many steps. The first is to determine your eligibility under the type of immigrant category under which you entered the U.S. Depending on the category, you may need to file an immigrant petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to establish your eligibility for a green card.
