Adjustment of Status

Houston Adjustment of Status Lawyer

Serving Clients in Texas For Over a Decade

Getting a green card (permanent resident status) in the U.S. allows you to live and work in the U.S. virtually free of restrictions and to file for a travel document, which allows you to travel outside the U.S. and return. Obtaining a green card and becoming a permanent resident of the U.S. also allows you to help other relatives secure family-based visas, and you may sponsor relatives immigrating to the U.S.

Adjustment of status petitions (Form I-485), petitions for alien relatives (Form I-130) and other family-based immigration issues require careful legal work and counsel to ensure petitions, supporting documentation and other evidence to prove eligibility are thorough and completed properly. It is important to work with an immigration lawyer who can guide you through the process and help you with any necessary appeals and motions to reconsider cases.

As a Houston immigration attorney, Mana Yegani is aproven advocate and respected representative of immigrants seeking adjustment of status for themselves and family green cards for immediate family members and relatives.

Minimize Delays & Legal Problems

Changing immigration status is not designed to be simple and straightforward. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) may require extensive additional information to make a decision in your case, the process could be delayed, your petition could be denied or your visa could expire. Petitions for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident (LPR) status must be filed before your visa expires, and it is recommended that you file Form I-485 well before your visa expires. Failing to do so could result in deportation/removal proceedings.

Factors influencing your eligibility and successful petition for a green card include age, health, country of origin, criminal history, work history, visa history, education, job skills, finances, length of stay in the U.S., immigration backlogs and the abilities of your Houston immigration lawyer.

Green Card Through the LIFE Act

Certain individuals may also be eligible for a green card through Section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act and the Legal Immigration Family Equity (LIFE) Act regardless of the manner they entered the U.S., working in the U.S. without authorization or failing to continuously maintain lawful immigration status.

However, you are only eligible if you are the beneficiary of a labor certification application (Form ETA 750) filed by an employer or immigrant visa petition filed on or before April 30, 2001, have a visa immediately available to you and are admissible to the U.S.
