Adjustment of Status & Consular Processing

Whether or not undergoing an adjustment of status is right for you can be determined by considering an alternate way of receiving a Green Card called consular processing. While an adjustment of status can be more expedient, no matter which method you choose, it’s recommended you hire an attorney to guide you through the process to increase your odds of success.

There are certain qualities that significantly differentiate these processes:

Adjustment of Status

  • Quicker processing time of about six or fewer months
  • Temporary employment and travel benefits are possible
  • Applicant can obtain a social security number and driver’s license if given employment authorization documentation
  • You may have an attorney present during a Green Card interview
  • Application denials can be appealed by your adjustment of status attorney in Fort Lauderdale

Consular Processing

  • Can take a year or longer to process your application
  • No ability to obtain work authorization
  • No visa for entry into the U.S. during processing (this can be emotionally difficult for families)
  • Involves the U.S. Consulate office, National Visa Center, and USCIS
  • Slightly less expensive than an adjustment of status
