STEP 4: Complete all the USCIS Forms

Obtain all the US Immigration (USCIS) Forms that you need to complete for the Adjustment of Status petition.

Most mistakes are done in this stage. People apply with the wrong forms or they miss some forms. Then they find out in 3 to 4 months. This stops them from getting their work authorization, travel permt and delays their Green card by another 6-8 months.

Here are some questions to ask yourself :

  • Do I need to file the I-130 Form?
  • Do I need to file the I-485 Form separately?
  • Do I want to be able to start working immediately?
  • Do I want to be able to travel abroad before my Green card arrives?

These are questions that will determine which USCIS Forms you need to complete and how to apply. Don't make a mistake here.

Do you know which USCIS Forms to file and how to complete them accurately?

ANSWER: Yes. Great! Go to Step 5 for your Adjustment of Status.

ANSWER: No/Maybe. No problem. Use the Visa Streamline System to complete your Application.
