Section 245(i) Adjustment of Status

Dedicated Orange County Immigration Attorney

If you entered the country unlawfully, or failed to maintain a lawful status, you may be eligible to apply for a change of status under the Legal Immigration Family Equality Act. However, this LIFE Act also extends to a number of other immigrants who were previously ineligible for an adjustment of status. To discuss your eligibility under this program, contact our Orange County immigration attorney today.

We provide skilled guidance to immigrants in Orange County and the surrounding communities. Call (949) 478-4963 today to get started.

Who is covered under section 245(i)?

At its core, the 245(i) amendment essentially allows those who do not have lawful status, entered the country without an inspection, or violated a non-immigrant visa to apply for an adjustment of status. The person must meet other requirements to qualify for a green card, but the aforementioned issues will be overlooked with the payment of a $1000 penalty.

You may be eligible to apply for a change of status if you:

  • Entered the United States unlawfully
  • Worked in the U.S. unlawfully
  • Did not maintain a continuous lawful status
  • Entered under the Visa Waiver Pilot program
  • Entered as a foreign crewman
  • Entered the U.S. as a foreign traveler without a visa

However, not all immigrants who fall into one of the above classes will be eligible for adjustment of status under this program. 245(i) will only apply if you meet the following:

  • You were physically in the U.S. on December 21, 2000
  • A labor certification application, or immigration petition was filed on your behalf on or prior to April 20, 2001
  • This application or petition must be eligible for approval at the time of filing.
