permanent residentFor many immigrants, the ultimate goal is to become a permanent resident or citizen of the United States. Though this is what many aspire to achieve, it should be known that there is a process to go through to get an Adjustment of Status. If you are considering applying to become a permanent resident, it is best to contact Maryland immigration lawyers to help you. Interested applicants have to determine if they qualify for the application and to learn the next steps they need to take.

When To Apply For Adjustment of Status
Each stage in the immigration process requires you to apply for certain applications at certain points in your immigration journey. Once you have reached the point where you’d like to apply for a green card or permanent residency, you’ll be required to submit an Adjustment of Status application. This will change your immigration status and have an official card issued for you.

Adjustment of Status can be applied for when your priority date is current. A priority date is given when an immigrant petition is filed on your behalf, such as Form I-130 or I-140. Maryland immigration lawyers will help you understand how these petitions apply to your specific case and how to know when your priority date is current. An attorney will also assist you with the Adjustment of Status application by helping you complete the necessary forms and gathering the supporting documentation. There are other requirements that have to be included that an attorney can give guidance on.
