Adjustment of Status
Under the Immigration Nationality Act (INA), individuals have the opportunity to adjust their immigration status from temporary to permanent; this is called “adjustment of status.” In order to accomplish this, you will first need to determine which immigrant category you fit into and you will need to file the proper petition and forms.
Many have applied for and obtained Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). It is a process whereby certain qualifying individuals may request consideration for deferred action for two years, subject to renewal. However, in order to request consideration for deferred action, one must first meet key guidelines which are based on the person’s age, education, criminal history, and more. On September 5, 2017, the Trump administration ended new applicants to the DACA program.
Naturalization & Citizenship
Provided that you can meet the strict qualifications, you may be eligible to apply for citizenship through the process of naturalization. Citizenship carries extensive rights and responsibilities, including the right to vote in elections, hold federal employment, and help your family members come to the U.S. on immediate relative visas.
