Adjustment of status, also known as AOS, is the process by means of which a foreigner applies for the permanent legal resident status in the United States. For family-based petitions, the applicant can qualify for AOS through a permanent U.S. resident or a U.S. citizen petitioner. The applicant can also qualify for a Permanent Resident Card, also known as Green Card, based on employment. The process duration varies. A correct submission of applications and supporting evidence are the basis for approval. Once the application is approved, the foreigner will receive an I-551 Permanent Resident Card. The foreigner can wait for approval in the United States.
As a firm, we represent the applicant in his or her petition. We accompany you throughout the whole process with USCIS. After the application is received, we carefully follow-up on all notifications received from USCIS, and will keep you up to date during the whole process. Once the interview is scheduled, we will accompany the applicant and the petitioner, so that we can obtain the best results possible in your case.
