Adjustment of Status

General Requirements

Adjustment of status is a process that allows elligible applicants to gain lawful permanent resident (green card holder) status without being required to leave the United States. Adjustment of status is different from consular processing, which is the traditional method of gaining permanent residence status.

Adjustment of status is available for alien residents of the U.S. who were inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States. In order to qualify for adjustment of status to that of a Lawful Permanent Resident, an alien must:

  • Submit an application for adjustment of status,
  • Be eligible to receive an immigrant visa,
  • Be admissible to the United States for permanent residence, and
  • There must be an immigrant visa immediately available at the time the application is submitted.

Immediate Availability of an Immigrant Visa

There must be an immigrant visa immediately available to the alien at the time the application is submitted. This is determined by the Visa Bulletin which is published monthly by the United States Department of State. The Visa Bulletin shows the priority date for each immigrant category.

Statutory Bars to Adjustment of Status

There are several statutory requirements that prohibit Adjustment of Status. Consult an experienced immigration attorney to determine if any of these prohibitions apply to your specific case. Some categories of statutory bars apply to individuals who are currently out of status and not authorized for employment.
