There are many reasons for visa overstays. During your time in the United States you may have developed relationships and built a life for yourself that you cannot bear to leave. Conditions in your home country may have deteriorated to such an extent that you’d face danger or severe hardship by returning. If you’ve overstayed your visa and are facing a removal action, the immigration attorneys at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP in New York City are prepared to help. Since the 1980s, our immigration team has fought for clients here on nonimmigrant visas to obtain adjustments of status enabling them to reside permanently in the United States. If your visa has expired, or the expiration date is approaching, we can help you avoid deportation so you can pursue your American dream.
Adjustment of status is the process under U.S. immigration law that allows a nonimmigrant residing here to apply for a green card representing their lawful permanent resident status. The process is commonly used by nonimmigrants who are in the United States and wish to remain once their work visas or student visas expire. In many cases, a nonimmigrant who has overstayed and is facing a removal action can apply for the adjustment to avoid deportation. Even some undocumented immigrants who entered the country illegally can apply if they have lived in the United States since 2000 and are beneficiaries of visa petitions or labor certifications filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or U.S. Department of Labor between January 15, 1998, and April 30, 2001.
The process of applying for an adjustment of status to the USCIS consists of several steps:
USCIS will mail you notice of the decision made in your case. Generally, you are not permitted to appeal a denial, but you may be able to file a motion to reopen or reconsider the case. You can rely on our professionalism and our determination as we pursue the result you seek.
