Best Answer

You will need an I-485 Adjustment of Status form, but there are other forms that you will need to submit depending on your case. Please consult an immigration attorney in your area. One small mistake trying to go through this process without an attorney could cost you many thousands of dollars, and many years, trying to correct the problem later.

Answering questions on Avvo does not create an attorney-client relationship. In order to create an attorney-client relationship, the potential client must schedule an intake appointment, meet with an attorney, execute a contract for representation, and pay a retainer fee.
