Deferred Action

The adjustment of status process allows the immigrant to obtain the legal permanent resident status, also known as the green card, here in the U.S., without having to return to their home country. To qualify for this process, you will need a petition filed by your lawful status spouse, immediate relative, or an employer and your last entry must be a lawful entry. While your green card application is pending, you can apply for a work permit to legally work in the U.S, obtain a driver’s license, and social security card.
