Adjustment Of Status

Related Topics

Foreign nationals here on a temporary visa often want to make their temporary situation more permanent. Options exist for them and family members who want to keep loved ones in the United States and employers who want to retain skilled staff. In cases involving the adjustment of an immigration status, skilled and experienced legal counsel is paramount.

At the law firm of Taylor Lee & Associates LLC, our attorneys help residents in the Atlanta area and northern Georgia secure a green card and become permanent residents of the United States.

Helping Temporary Visa Holders Secure Permanent Statuses

For eligible people residing in the United States on a temporary visa, adjustment of status is one of two options — the second being consular processing — to apply for permanent resident status and complete the entire process without having to return to their home country.

An individual's immigration status can be changed from temporary to permanent resident based on the following:

  • Inspection, admission or parole into the United States
  • Meeting all required qualifications for a green card in a particular category

Upon receiving their green cards, recipients possess all rights and protections granted in the United States, specifically to live and work in the country. They can also sponsor family members in other countries.

The process can be time-consuming, complicated and frustrating. Our focus is on the end goal of obtaining permanent residency for our clients. Time is of the essence, as in many cases we are going up against temporary visas about to expire. Our lawyers are timely in the steps they take and attend to every detail.
