Helping Foreign Nationals Obtain Their Green Cards
“Adjustment of status” is the method by which legally admitted foreign nationals are changed from one category of immigration status to another without returning to their country of origin. Most commonly, this occurs when someone who entered the United States on a visa (such as a nonimmigrant K-1 visa or tourist visa) is applying for their permanent resident status (also called a green card). Adjustment of status enables such individuals to remain in the United States while this process takes place.
Because the stakes are high and the process is complex, it is easy to become overwhelmed and frustrated. Seeking the assistance of a qualified immigration attorney can reduce the stress you may be feeling during this time.
