245(i) LIFE Act Adjustment of Status

Green Card Help in Illinois & Nationwide

How can you obtain a green card through adjustment of status under the Legal Immigration Family Equity Act (LIFE Act) and LIFE Act Amendments of 2000?

Section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) allows certain individuals who would not normally qualify to apply for permanent residency, regardless of the manner they entered the United States, whether they worked without authorization, and even if they failed to maintain lawful status in the U.S. since their entry.

To learn more, call (312) 883-9944. We offer experienced help with LIFE Act adjustment of status matters in Illinois and across the U.S.

What Are the LIFE Act Eligibility Requirements?

You may be eligible for an adjustment of status under Section 245(i) of the INA if:

  • You are the beneficiary of an immigrant visa petition as an alien relative, alien worker, alien entrepreneur, widow(er), or special immigrant received or postmarked to INS on or before April 30, 2001.
  • You are the beneficiary of an application for labor certification filed with the Department of Labor on or before April 30, 2001.
  • You were physically present in the United States on December 21, 2000, if the qualifying visa petition or labor certification application was filed between January 14, 1998 and April 30, 2001.
  • You are admissible to the United States.
  • There is a visa immediately available to you.

In some cases, a spouse or child may be eligible for a green card through adjustment of status under Section 245(i).
