ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS VIA APPROVED U-VISA
U-Visa grantees are eligible to adjust their status to that of a Legal Permanent Resident if they have been in U-visa status for three years. In addition, the applicant must continue to be eligible for U-Visa status at the tile the Adjustment of Status was filed.
Eligibility for Adjustment of Status for U-Visa Grantees is as follows:
Have been continuously physically present in the U.S. for three years or more
Have not unreasonably refused to assist law enforcement in investigating and prosecuting the crime against you
are not inadmissible to the U.S. due to participation in Nazi persecution, genocide, or extrajudicial killings, and
can demonstrate to USCIS that allowing you to become a permanent resident is justified on humanitarian, public interest, or family unity grounds.
In addition, if you have a qualifying family member who has never held U-Visa status, they can also apply for a green card if he or she is in the United States, can show that the U-1 principal would suffer extreme hardship if he or she were forced to leave the United States, and is not inadmissible to the United States due to participation in Nazi persecution, genocide, or extrajudicial killings.
