Adjustment of Status for Permanent Residents
When an individual is present in the United States and wishes to become a permanent resident with a Green Card, they will be required to go through the Adjustment of Status process. Anyone who wishes to adjust his or her status to become a permanent resident will have to first determine if they are eligible for a Green Card. A few of the many reasons that an individual may be eligible to adjust their status include employment, family, refugee, asylum, or humanitarian reasons. Of course, it is always best to consult with an experienced attorney that can help determine which category is best for each individual and then guide them through the process of adjusting their status to achieve a Green Card. Please be aware that individuals who wish to obtain permanent resident status but are not currently in the United States will have to go through consular processing instead of adjustment of status.
There are many requirements that one must meet to obtain a Green Card. Some of the requirements include the following:
- Attend a biometrics appointment and/or medical exam
- Submit to a criminal background check
- Interview with a USCIS agent
