Our client, a citizen of China, entered the US on a valid B-1/B-2 tourist visa, and was inspected and admitted as a nonimmigrant visitor. She later married the petitioner, a US citizen, and hired our immigration lawyers in Charlotte NC to assist with obtaining Lawful Permanent Resident status.
During our first consultation, we assessed the situation and advised that as an immediate relative of a US citizen the most appropriate course of action was to apply for an adjustment of status process. This process permits a person to obtain LPR status while being physically present in the US and avoids the expenses and inconvenience of travelling to the home country to obtain an immigrant visa. We further advised that as an adjustment of status applicant our client was eligible for work authorization and travel document (advance parole). These are temporary work/travel permits that USCIS provides in case the case takes an unusually long time to adjudicate.
We also provided a realistic processing timeframe, identified the responsibilities of each party and reviewed any potential risks involved in the proposed course of action. Furthermore, we provided a comprehensive list to assist our client in gathering the required supporting documentation.
At the subsequent stages of the process, we prepared all the forms, reviewed and organized the supporting documentation, assemble all the materials and submitted our client’s package by courier (Federal Express) to ensure delivery. At the proper time, we thoroughly prepared our client for the adjustment interview. During our pre-interview meeting we discussed the documents they need to bring with them, reviewed the kinds of questions they will be asked, the possible outcomes, and the role the attorney will have during the interview.
Our client’s green card was approved at the conclusion of the interview. Less the 2 ½ months took for this case to be processed from the time it was officially filed with USCIS.
