Navigating the adjustment of status process

Understanding the adjustment of status process can be important for those looking to adjust their immigration status. Individuals who lack lawful permanent resident status, or green card, can remain in the United States through the adjustment of status process provided they meet certain necessary criteria. Those seeking to do so should be familiar with the adjustment of status process.

Your options if you disagree with an adjustment of status ruling

Some immigrants living in Georgia or elsewhere in the nation do not have a green card. To remain in the country as a lawful permanent resident, however, they may request an adjustment of status from the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services. In general, a decision by the USCIS on an application for an adjustment of status cannot be appealed. However, applicants may be able to move the court to either reopen or reconsider the case. It is important to understand what these two terms mean, so that those who find themselves in this situation can make an informed decision.

What is needed to seek an adjustment of status?

If a person was born in another country and is residing in Georgia or elsewhere the U.S. without a green card, it may be possible for them to remain in the country if they meet the requirements for an adjustment of status. Basically, this qualifies them to pursue a green card that will allow them to remain in the country as a lawful permanent resident. There are several requirements that must be met to qualify for an adjustment of status.
