Adjustment of Status
Some individuals who are currently in the United States can adjust their status to become a lawful permanent resident (and obtain a “Green Card”). The laws are complex on who is eligible to adjust their status in the United States. For example, sometimes a spouse of a U.S. citizen can file a one-step adjustment of status application if they entered with inspection and have no other grounds of inadmissibility. However, if the spouse has multiple immigration violations or certain criminal convictions, they may not be eligible to adjust their status. Although some immigration violations and criminal convictions can be waived.
