Adjustment of Status
Adjustment of Status through MarriageIf you entered the United States legally (whether you still have legal status or not) and married a United States Citizen, then you could be eligible to adjust status, i.e.: obtain your green card through marriage without leaving the United States.
Adjustment of status through a parent-child petition:If you are an unmarried, under 21 years of age child of a United States Citizen, and came to the country legally, you could be eligible to adjust status without leaving the US through a petition from your US citizen father. Similarly if you are over 21 years old and file a petition for your parents to live in this country and your parents entered the country legally, they could be eligible to adjust status without leaving the United States.

AsylumIf you have a reasonable fear that your life or freedom will be threatened in your country because of something you cannot change in your life, then you might be able to apply for asylum. It is important that, if you are in the United States already, you apply within one year from entering the country. We can help you with the entire process from beginning to end.
- The U visa was designed for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity. This is a powerful visa. If you were helpful to an investigation and the crime you were victim of qualifies, you might be eligible. Unless you have certain crime of your own for which there is no waiver, you could qualify for a waiver, which is filed simultaneously with the U visa application.
- The O-1 nonimmigrant visa is for the individual who possesses extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements.
