Introduction to Adjustment of Status Applications
Jun 13, 2023
Refugees, asylees, and other recipients of humanitarian relief may apply to become Lawful Permanent Residents (“LPRs”), or “green card holders” in the U.S. through a process called “adjustment of status.” This process is an important step in a person’s immigration journey because LPRs enjoy significant benefits, including the ability to work, the freedom to travel abroad, and the ability to petition for certain family members to join them in the U.S. This process also represents a significant step toward becoming a U.S. citizen. For many, having a green card is a true measurement of permanency and stability in the U.S. HIAS pro bono attorneys play an important role in this work by assisting refugees, asylees, and others who are eligible and ready to become LPRs.
Please join us for a virtual legal training to learn more about when and how individuals with humanitarian protections in the U.S. apply to adjust status. We will also discuss opportunities to get involved in these types of cases. Please register in advance below. You must be registered to receive the webinar information. A recorded version of this training will be available on a later date. Many thanks to Loeb & Loeb and Morgan Stanley for their generous sponsorship of this webinar. CLE credit may be available for live participants in certain jurisdictions.
