Dates are important when seeking adjustment of status

Wanting to become a permanent resident in the United States may have been a lifelong dream. Of course, the process for those in California and other states can be immensely complex, and knowing the right time to take certain steps is not always clear. Unfortunately, if a person fails to file an adjustment of status petition or take another step of the process at the right time, he or she could face difficulties.

What steps are involved in the adjustment of status process?

Many people enter the United States on various types of visas. However, they may come to feel that this country could act as their new permanent home. Of course, individuals cannot simply choose to live in California or other states without following the proper steps, including working toward an adjustment of status that allows them to pursue a green card.

Many immigrants want to do their best to obtain a permanent place in the United States. Unfortunately, the task of seeking an adjustment of status can be difficult. Without the right information, some individuals may think that they are taking proper steps toward obtaining a visa, but in reality, they may not be helping themselves as much as they think.

Interviews now required for employment-based adjustment of status

Many individuals come to the United States in hopes of finding work. It is not unusual for parties to gain entry to the country due to obtaining a work visa or through other employment immigration means. This process can often help individuals improve their lives and opportunities, and they may even wish to seek an adjustment of status in hopes of obtaining a green card.
