Testimonials

" During the process of getting my Green Card, my husband and I had so many disastrous experiences with the immigration lawyers we were referred to; some were way too expensive, while others were just plain unprofessional. Out of desperation, we came across the website for staylegally.com and decided to give them a call. Meeting with Jessie Thomas was a refreshing change. For one, she was very flexible and worked with us, she was even willing to meet with us on Sundays! Jessie Thomas was the perfect combination of personal and professional. We connected with her almost immediately, Jessie makes it easy for you to feel like you've known her all your life. Above all, she was very professional and had such great attention to detail. The immigration process is stressful enough as it is, so it was a relief for me to have a lawyer who was all about the details and I knew I didn't have to worry about it. I will not hesitate to refer The Law Office of Jessie Thomas to any of my friends that I know are in need of such services because I know they would not be disappointed. "...More

Adjustment of Status Lawyer - Richardson, TX

Adjust to Legal Permanent Residence Status

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) permits the change of an individual's immigration status while in the United States from nonimmigrant or parolee (temporary) to immigrant (permanent) if the individual was inspected and admitted or paroled into the United States and is able to meet all required qualifications for a green card (permanent residence) in a particular category. The common term for a change to permanent status is "adjustment of status".

Eligibility for Adjustment of Status

Adjustment of status eligibility is based on being in one of several different immigration categories. In most of the cases approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the applicant submits his or her petition on a family-based visa in one of the following:

  • in the immediate relative visa category, or
  • with one of the family preference visas, or
  • on an employment-based visa

In each case, the petitioner must be sponsored, either by a permanent resident or U.S. citizen relative or by the prospective or current employer. For employment-based visas it is often necessary for the employer to first obtain labor certification to ensure that the hiring of foreign nationals will not deprive local workers of jobs or depress local wages. In addition to family-based and employment-based immigrant applications, adjustment of status is also available for other special classes of immigrants including asylum seekers.
