One of our most frequently used services is adjustment of status for the spouses, children, and parents of U.S. citizens who are present in the U.S. and seeking permanent residency. We are pleased to say that, for the most part, these applications are being processed very swiftly in New York. On average, it takes about 6-8 months for spousal cases and about 8-12 months for parental cases. This is a marked improvement over previous years where there was a significantly longer wait time. We encourage anyone one wanting more information on this process to come in for a free consultation with our staff. We are happy to review with you the steps that need to be taken and the documents necessary for your particular situation.
