ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS BASED ON MARRIAGE TO A U.S. CITIZEN

TRUST A LEADING EVANSTON IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY FOR YOUR MARRIAGE-BASED GREEN CARD

As an immigrant living in the United States or wishing to relocate to the States, there are a multitude of ways you may be able to gain legal status. If you are in a bona fide relationship and intend to marry your U.S. Citizen or permanent resident partner, green cards based on marriage are one of the more streamlined ways through which to gain status in the United States. Adjustment of status helps to change a non-immigrant status to immigrant status (Green Card), but there are many steps and nuanced factors, including timing issues, to keep in mind as you begin your journey.

It is important to work with a reputable and leading Evanston Immigration lawyer from Takhsh Law, P.C. throughout the process to ensure you approach it the most effective, efficient and cost-effective way.

MARRIAGE TO A U.S. CITIZEN OR GREEN CARD HOLDER

In order to be eligible for a Green Card through marriage to a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident, you must have been admitted or paroled into the country. You must be admissible and eligible under all of the relevant rules and regulations to obtain a Green Card. Adjusting status is not a simple process and requires the assistance of a knowledgeable and effective attorney to guide you through the twists and turns of the process.

A few specific issues which can potentially affect your adjustment of status process include:

  • Intent issues
  • Criminal convictions
  • Crimes of moral turpitude
  • Medical issues
  • Inspection issues
  • Unlawful presence or overstay
  • Fraud issues
