Adjustment of Status

Chicago Immigration Law Office- Adjustment of Status Lawyers

Our Chicago immigration attorneys can help you file for a green card based on employment or family based petition. 

Noncitizens who are outside of the U.S. and seek permanent residence in the U.S. can apply for an immigrant visa at U.S. consulates abroad and are then admitted into the United States as lawful permanent residents. Under certain circumstances, noncitizens who are present in the U.S. may become permanent residents without having to leave the US. This process, which is administered at the discretion of the USCIS, is called "adjustment of status." It differs from the "change of status" process where an noncitizen present in the U.S. changes from one nonimmigrant classification to another.

In order to qualify, eligible noncitizens generally must be in legal immigration status on the date of filing the permanent resident application and must have maintained lawful status since admission into the United States.

The determination whether you are eligible to file for adjustment of status requires professional analysis as a potential denial of an adjustment of status application may result in placing you in a process to remove you from the U.S.

If you have any concerns regarding your eligibility to adjust status in the U.S. call us at 773-516-4100 or contact the Chicago immigration lawyers of Zneimer & Zneimer P.C. online for a consultation to discuss your immigration issues or questions.

Client Reviews
Someone rear-ended my car last spring and I was injured. Peter and Sofia Zneimer and they staff were professional and were always available by phone. I knew that the insurance of the other driver wasn't very good but they were still able to settle my case promptly and I was satisfied with the money I received. Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
