Adjustment of Status Services We Provide

Petitioning for an adjustment of status (AOS) is normally the final step an alien physically present in the United States takes in order to obtain a green card.

On a superficial level, it seems as though the process would be easy enough to handle on one’s own: submit a Form I-485 to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). While some applicants who handle their own AOS petitions may ultimately meet success, these individuals amount to a minority of AOS applicants. In reality, there are several tricky issues applicants must consider, including, for instance, the age-out problem; compiling reams of documentation, such as evidence to convincingly demonstrate financial support; and connecting an applicant’s nonimmigrant status to his subsequent, prospective permanent resident status. Accordingly, we urge AOS applicants to seek the assistance of an experienced legal team. At Zhang & Associates, we have spent the last two decades successfully representing thousands of AOS petitioners.
