    Answered . The USCIS likely denied the visa lottery based adjustment, but you may want to have someone inquire and do a Freedom of Information Act request for copies in your alien file. Perhaps, it was approved, but you didn't receive the notice. Your file may still be pending, but it should be denied if it was not closed out and approved before October 1 after you filed for adjustment.

    You should seek an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
