Adjustment of Status

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) for Adjustment of Status allows changes to an individual's immigration status while in the United States. This change in status can be from Nonimmigrant (temporary) with Conditional Permit to Immigrant (permanent) if the individual was inspected and admitted or granted conditional permission to enter the United States and may satisfy all the requirements for a Green Card in a particular category.

US Immigration Laws provide several ways for people to apply for the Green Card. Eligibility requirements for adjustment of status may vary depending on the category of immigrant under which you are applying. The first step in the adjustment of status process is to determine if you fall under a special category of immigrant.

File Form I-485

If you are in the United States and eligible to adjust your status, you can file a Form I-485. Go to the Form I-485 instructions page and your immigration category website for instructions on how to complete your application and properly file it with USCIS.
