Adjustment of status vs consular processing

If you're here in the U.S., you may be able to have your immigration interview in the U.S., even if your visa has expired and sometimes even if you entered the country illegally.  This is known as "adjustment of status."


If you're not eligible for adjustment of status, then you will have your immigration interview at a U.S. consulate.  This is known as "consular processing."

We can help you become a lawful U.S. resident

Fiance(e) visa

VAWA petitions

Removal of conditional status

If you were married less than 2 years when you got your green card, removal of conditional status lets you get a permanent green card.


I-130 petitions

If the family relationship already exists, an I-130

petition starts the process to a green card.

If you are engaged to  marry a U.S. citizen, you qualify for the fiance(e) visa to enter the U.S. to get married.

If a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident relative commits domestic violence against you, you can get a green card without relying on that relative to sponsor you.


The most common way for someone to become a lawful permanent resident is through a relationship with a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident.  We have helped hundreds of families be here in the U.S. with the people they love most.
