Adjustment of Status is the process of changing an individuals’ immigration status to that of a lawful permanent resident inside the United States. Consular Processing is the process of applying for an immigrant visa at a U.S. Consulate abroad and entering the U.S. as a permanent resident. Sometimes determining which path to take is pretty straightforward, but at other times, a complex legal analysis is needed. Keep in mind that each case is unique and each case includes particular facts that determine the right legal strategy for your case. We recommend that you consult an experienced immigration attorney before moving forward with your case.
