One of the most important duties is preparing the application for status adjustment. As you begin to prepare the documents, the stack grows significantly. It becomes burdensome for applicants to simultaneously file Form I-130 and Form I-485 Application to Adjust Status. Just keep that in mind

It is not sufficient to just put the documents in an envelope and send them to USCIS. So that USCIS can quickly comprehend your intents and locate your supporting documentation, papers should be prepared and delivered. Therefore, it is evident that putting together your adjustment of a status package requires careful thought.

What is not advisable to do

Use of binders or folders that USCIS finds difficult to deconstruct is not advised. Use fasteners or sturdy clips instead than heavy-duty staples.

How to assemble AOS Package

Keep everything simple and well-organized. There will be less danger of misplaced documents and Requests for Evidence if the package is organized and simple to use, which will allow USCIS to process your case more swiftly (RFE).

Paralegals and immigration attorneys are skilled in these positions. They organize the applications and accompanying documents in the file using a two-prong folder or ACCO fastener.

Minors errors on the Form I-485 application result in expensive delays and rejections?

However, if you find it difficult to employ an immigration lawyer for your case due to high fees that you cannot afford and believe you can handle it on your own with expert advice. Ask a law firm about their specialized services, such as hiring a paralegal to assist you with your application by giving you personalized filing instructions.

Please take note that not all applications for status adjustments require the completion of the forms specified above.

How to proceed if you have several Cases

If you have many family members, you must exercise greater caution because it is crucial to accurately combine their applications and submit them, even though USCIS will process each one independently. We are aware of USCIS’s penchant for misplacing items, which delays all applications if the paperwork of applicants becomes unorganized or a fastener malfunctions. Use rubber bands or other fasteners to clearly separate the cases if you’re sending more than one case in an envelope.
