Adjustment of Status

Adjustment of Status is an application filed by an individual already in the United States who wants to get a green card without returning to his or her home country. This process helps the individual to become a lawful permanent resident if the individual meets certain qualifications.

How do you file for an Adjustment of Status?

The first step in the process is to determine into what immigrant eligibility category the individual most appropriately fits.  Typically, an individual becomes eligible for a Green Card through a petition filed on their behalf by either an employer or a family member.  In addition to family-based and employment-based categories, there are also special classes of immigrants and humanitarian programs that render an individual eligible to adjust their status in the United States. 

It takes a skilled and seasoned immigration lawyer to uncover all of the possible ways an individual may legalize his or her status.

How can The Shulman Law Group help you?

At The Shulman Law Group, we take our consultation process very seriously.  It is during this time that we learn the full immigration background of our clients and ask detailed questions about the nature of their entry into the United States and other important facts about their family history, relationship history, professional history, and criminal history. We listen to all of our clients very carefully, because certain historical facts guide us in fully advocating for their immigration needs. 

Why The Shulman Law Group?

Our office is not a factory like some other immigration law firms. We value each and every one of our clients and take the time to understand their individual issues and unique circumstances.  Our immigration attorneys feel that it is critically important to educate our clients about all of the possible programs for which they may be eligible to adjust their status. Indeed, there are many times where there are multiple avenues a client may choose to take and we will explore all of the potentialities so that they can be as informed as possible in their decision-making.

To make the long story short - I wouldn't be here now writing this review if it wasn't for him. He fought with me and for me as if he was defending himself and not some stranger from a foreign country. I will highly recommend him - if your case has any chance at all he is the one you need.
