There are two paths to legal permanent resident status through a family member: adjustment of status or consular processing.
Adjustment of Status is available to some, not all, individuals who are physically present in the United States. Adjustment of status is a procedure that allows a qualified applicant to become a lawful permanent resident in the United States without having to go abroad and apply for an immigrant visa at a consulate. Failure to maintain lawful status and entering on certain nonimmigrant visas or without inspection may render an individual ineligible to adjust status. A wrongly filed adjustment of status application could result in the initiation of deportation proceedings against the applicant. Therefore, it is important to consult with an experienced immigration lawyer before filing an adjustment of status application.
The lawyers at Nayar & McIntyre, LLP have over 18 years combined experience assisting individuals with adjustment of status. Our lawyers will review your eligibility for adjustment of status, and answer your questions about the process, timeline, and required documentation. We will prepare the application and ensure all supporting documents are included to avoid unnecessary delays. You will work directly with a lawyer, not a paralegal, throughout the process, and we will keep you informed about the status of your case every step of the way. Importantly, an experienced adjustment of status lawyer will attend any interviews scheduled at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services with you.
Waivers: If an applicant for adjustment of status has triggered any grounds of inadmissibility due to past crimes, immigration violations, fraud, or unlawful presence in the U.S., an immigration lawyer at Nayar & McIntyre, LLP can also help prepare a waiver to submit to the Department of Homeland Security. We will evaluate the need for a waiver at your initial consultation. See latest developments in waiver processing by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
