Adjustment of Status (AOS) in the United States

Adjustment of Status (AOS) is the process that allows a person to become a lawful permanent resident in the United States without having to return to their home country. The whole process is conducted in the United States and it requires an in-person interview with an officer at your local United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) office.

You may be eligible for AOS if you entered the United States with a Visa or if you are protected ("grandfathered") by Section 245(i), which means that an I-130 (family) or I-140 (employment) petition was filed on yours or your parent's behalf before April 30, 2001. You may also be eligible for AOS under other circumstances, including an approved U-Visa or VAWA request.

We can help you file for AOS. We will prepare you and all of the required evidence in a manner that will allow the USCIS officer to approve your case and give you permanent resident status here in the United States. We will also attend the interview and help guide your case to an approval.
