Adjustment of Status Archives

Seeking a change of status after a disaster

When you first began your efforts to seek temporary residency in the United States, you probably learned quickly that the progress is complex and slow with no guarantees. You may have completed what seemed like reams of paperwork, gathered documentation and checked off other requirements to gain entry into the U.S.

Comparing consular processing and adjustment of status

If you want to work in the U.S., there are two ways you can apply for permanent resident status (to get your green card): adjustment of status and consular processing. In this post, we examine the core differences between these two application methods.

USCIS marriage interview: a booby trap for deportation?

Marriage used to be a trusted way to gain legal residency in the U.S. As long as you could prove your marriage was legitimate, you were free to stay. However, in the wake of the current administration’s push to oust illegal immigrants, marriage is no longer the safe route to legal residency that it once was.

Form completion, organization may help your status application

As someone looking to make the United States your permanent home, you may feel anxious about all of the steps involved in the process. Because adjusting your immigration status and pursuing the road to citizenship can often involve many challenges, your feelings of anxiety are not unwarranted. Even simple mistakes can derail an otherwise well put together application.

The barriers between you and permanent resident status

If you are not a citizen of the United States, you know that marriage to a citizen may be a way for you to secure permanent resident status. However, there are still many challenges standing between you and your goal of legally and permanently residing in the United States, specifically Texas. 

Getting the green light on your family green card

Immigration issues of all kinds are complex and difficult to understand, especially if you do not have an immigration law degree. Due to the ever-changing, constantly evolving laws and regulations that pertain to immigration, if you have questions or concerns about green cards and what they mean for the status of your family in Texas and elsewhere, you would be wise not to navigate these issues on your own.

How should you fill out Form I-864? Carefully, very carefully

It's an exciting time in your family when a member is ready to apply for a green card. Because his or her application relies on a family visa, a sponsor is required, and you stepped up to fulfill that role. After all, you support your loved one's aspirations of becoming a citizen one day, and this is the next step.

What to do if your visa is denied

Whether someone is trying to get into another country for work, school or personal reasons, a visa denial can ruin extensive plans and cause the applicant to lose thousands of dollars. Before giving up, rejected persons and their family members in Texas should learn what steps they can take to overcome a refusal.
