Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status in MA

Skilled Representation from Our Wakefield Immigration Lawyer

When you marry a U.S. citizen, you can apply for a marriage-based adjustment of status. This essentially means that person can apply to be a lawful U.S. permanent resident. DiSisto Law, P.C. is an immigration law firm that understands the process of marriage-based adjustment of status and the unique challenges that can arise during that process.

Attorney DiSisto will dedicate the time and resources needed to assist with your adjustment needs. Contact our firm today to learn more.

Filing a petition entails a number of important steps, such as:

  • Filing a petition and getting approval
  • Appling for a green card
  • Completing a fingerprinting and photography session
  • Having a personal interview to prove validity of the marriage

There are several complications that can arise. If someone has entered the United States without inspection, that person could be subject to a three to ten year bar if he or she leaves the country. If fraud is suspected based on wrong or inconsistent answers the parties may be separated and interviewed alone and their green card status can be denied.

Preparing for an Interview

The interview can and will be personal in nature and it is best to be prepared and understand what kinds of questions may be asked. The personal interview and filing process also requires certain kinds of documentation, including statements showing shared bank accounts, mortgage or lease statements, or photographs. Wedding photos, vacation photos, and other proof of a shared life can all be invaluable resources to ensure a smooth meeting. Sworn statements from others, such as family and friends, can be helpful also.

Avoid Complications During Your Adjustment Process

Marriage is an exciting time for any couple. Ensuring a spouse can stay in the U.S. legally is part of the process. While fairly simple for most couples, immigration can still entail unforeseen complications and pose challenges that require legal guidance.

Attorney DiSisto understands the importance of handling a marriage-based adjustment of status legally and efficiently. She also knows the intimidation factor that may be involved with the personal interview. She can dedicate the time and resources needed to ensure a smooth process and help you move forward as a couple.
