P2 Visa to Green Card

Asked over 1 year ago - Key West, FL

Currently my wife is a background singer for a musician in Key West. However, she'll be applying for a separate P2 as a headliner singer in the next coming months through AFM as she has some venues booked solid. Can she apply or adjust status to PR after she obtains her P2? Please help.

    Answered . Not on the basis of having a P-2. She would most likely need an employment based sponsor.

    You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues, to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case.
