Selected Issues in Adjustment of Status

For beneficiaries residing in the United States and otherwise eligible, adjustment of status provides an avenue to gain permanent residence without having to travel abroad. This workshop will cover strategies and challenges in establishing eligibility for adjustment under INA § 245(a) and § 245(i), including: proof of admission for 245(a) eligibility; parole, including travel on advance parole by DACA recipients and TPS holders; maintaining lawful immigration status for preference category applicants; qualifying for 245(i) adjustment as a grandfathered or after-acquired derivative beneficiary; and demonstrating the applicant deserves a favorable exercise of discretion.
