U.S. Adjustment of Status Attorney

The United States of America offers a path to citizenship for many immigrants through a process called Adjustment of Status. You can qualify for Adjustment of Status if:

  1. Your employer has filed an immigrant petition on your behalf (also known as employment-based immigration.)
  2. You are the immediate relative of a U.S. citizen or have a family relationship with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident that qualifies you for a family-based immigrant visa.
  3. You are a refugee or asylee who has been physically present in the United States for at least one year.
  4. You meet the requirements for a special immigrant category.
If you are eligible to adjust your status, you must file an application with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The application process can be complex, and it is important to have an experienced immigration attorney by your side.
At Olubusayo Fasidi PC, we have over a decade of experience helping immigrants navigate the Adjustment of Status process. We will work with you to ensure that your application is complete and accurate, and we will represent you in any interviews or hearings that may be required.

Family Based Immigration

If you are seeking to adjust your status based on your relationship with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, you will need to file a family-based immigrant visa petition. There are four preference categories for family-based immigrant visas:

  • Immediate Relatives of U.S. Citizens

    You may be eligible for an immigrant visa if you are the spouse, unmarried child under the age of 21, or parent of a U.S. citizen. There is no annual limit on the number of immigrant visas available in this category.

  • First Preference

    You may be eligible for an immigrant visa if you are an unmarried adult child of a U.S. citizen.

  • Second Preference

    You may be eligible for an immigrant visa if you are the spouse or an unmarried son or daughter over the age of 21 of a lawful permanent resident.

  • Third Preference

    You may be eligible for an immigrant visa if you are the married son or daughter of a U.S. citizen.

  • Fourth Preference

    You may be eligible for an immigrant visa if you are the sibling of a United States citizen regardless of your age and marital status.

The number of immigrant visas that are available in each preference category is limited each year. This means that there may be a wait for a visa to become available, depending on the demand in each category. With the right representation by a skilled adjustment of status attorney, you don’t have to worry too much about the wait.
We will help you navigate and seal any loopholes in your application to give you the best chance possible of success.

Asylum and Refugee Status

Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, is the form used to apply for asylum in the United States. You may also use this form to apply for withholding of removal, similar to asylum but with a higher burden of proof. To be eligible for asylum, you must demonstrate a well-founded fear of persecution because of your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. Withholding of removal is available only in removal proceedings. If you are granted asylum or withholding of removal, you will be allowed to live and work in the United States. You may also be eligible for certain benefits, such as food assistance and medical care. If you are applying for asylum, you must file your application within one year of your last arrival in the United States unless you can demonstrate that there are changed circumstances that materially affect your eligibility for relief or extraordinary circumstances relating to your delay in filing.
