The Adjustment of Status Process:
Spouses of U.S. citizens are considered "immediate relatives" and are exempt from quota limitations and will be granted immediate residency when the documents are processed. Applicants married to permanent residents may have a much longer waiting period.
If both the US resident and the foreign spouse live in the US, a petition with supporting documents is filed with the appropriate USCIS office. The USCIS will generally issue employment authorization and permission to travel outside the U.S. ("advance parole") to the foreign spouse shortly after the application is submitted and while it is pending. Thereafter you will receive a notice of an interview conducted by the USCIS. The final issuance of the permanent residency (green card) may take between 5 or 6 months depending on USCIS workload; however, the foreign spouse may remain in the US, work and travel (with appropriate permits) while his/her application is being processed.
Thereafter, the foreign spouse is granted Conditional Permanent Resident status. The conditional status is removed by submitting a joint petition within 90 days before the 2 year anniversary of the granting of the conditional permanent resident status; however this may be waived if there has been a divorce or death of the US citizens spouse before the two years are completed.
This is the total flat fee charged by AmeriLawGroup for the Adjustment of Status with Green Card, temporary work and travel permits is: 1500.00.

Question: Are you a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA)
Question: Many other law firms have much higher fees. How can you afford to do a professional job for such a low fee?
Answer: I work personally with each of my clients. Each client has a direct phone number and email address to contact me. I keep my overhead low and use the latest in technology to make the process very efficient. My 35 years of legal experience has taught me how to do a professional job in a fast and efficient manner. This benefits both myself and my clients and allows me to offer these services at a reasonable price.
Question: Where is your law office located?
Answer: My law offices are located in St. Helena, California, USA, which is just North of San Francisco, California.
Question: Does it matter if you are in California and I am in some other state or country?
Answer: No, I service clients from many states and countries by using the latest in electronic tools such as special immigration software, email, fax and telephone. This makes the process fast and efficient for me and my clients
Question: Who would be handling my case?
Answer: I will be personally handling your case. I do not use paralegals. I will be available for personal phone or email consultation with you about your case.
Question: How long have you been in practice?
Answer: I have been admitted to practice law in California and before the Federal Courts of the United States since 1972. If you would like to verify my California State Bar status please go to the California State Bar site for my listing here.
Question: How much time does it take to get my Adjustment of Status (Greencard)?
Answer: It normally take 1–2 weeks to process the required forms and supporting documents and to file the application. The actual issuance of the green card will take approximately 5-6 months. While this application is pending the applicant may remain in the US. I also include a filing for a temporary permit and travel permit in the flat fee stated below. It takes approximately 30 days to receive the work and travel permits. Upon receipt of the work and travel permits the applicant may work in the US or travel outside the US while the green card application is pending. The applicant may travel within the US before receiving the travel permit.
Question: How much are the total fees, when are they paid and what do you do for that fee?
Answer: The fees paid to the USCIS for an Adjustment of Status is $1070 if you have already filed the form I–130 (Application for permanent residence) and $1490 if you have not filed a form I–130 previously. These fees are paid to the US government at the time the first Petition is filed. Our fees are in addition to this and are as shown below. If you are here on a K–1 or K–3 visa your total fee to the USCIS will be $1070.
My flat fee for an Adjustment of Status (Greencard) application + the travel and work permit is $1500 (past and current clients are eligible for a discount; please call for details). The fee is the same whether you have filed the form I–130 previously or not. This includes assistance with preparation of all required forms and all supporting documents. You will also have access to my direct phone and email to discuss your case as needed and assure your case is filed promptly and correctly the first time.
