    Answered . What is the adjustment based on? If this is a marriage based adjustment and any kind of fraud is found, it could mean trouble. For example, say you are granted the adjustment and then you do get married to your ex-wife. Well, that might result in another investigation at that time and your current case might get reopened.

    if your current marriage is genuine, a lawyer can help you give the necessary proofs, represent you at the interview and get your adjustment approved.
