Adjustment of Status

Louisiana Adjustment Of Status Lawyer

Obtaining legal permanent residence status — a green card, which can enable a person to remain in the United States indefinitely — is an important step for many people who enter the country with visas and wish to stay. This process is referred to as adjustment of status. Timely action is crucial because failure to file for an adjustment of status before a visa expires can result in removal from the United States.
