For a one-step application, the process can take between four months to a year or longer. The time it takes to get your green card will depend on whether there are any special issues with your case and the backlog at your local USCIS office.

Many cases will take just over four months to complete, but there is no guarantee that you will get your green card this quickly. If you are asked to submit additional evidence or need to submit a waiver application, the process likely will take longer.

What is a one-step application?

In a family immigration case, a one-step adjustment of status application involves submitting both the immigrant visa petition and the adjustment of status application at the same time. Not everyone will qualify for the one-step adjustment of status process. You should make sure that you qualify for the one step process before you submit your package. If you don’t qualify, you may lose at least part of your application fee (most likely over $1,000) and your adjustment of status application will not be approved.

How do I check the timing at my local USCIS office?

Every USCIS office operates a little bit differently. Some have far more adjustment of status applications than others. Some have more immigration officers than others. The best way to check how long you can expect to wait for an interview is to check the official USCIS processing times.

Other green card / adjustment of status timing…

If you don’t qualify for a one-step application but you qualify to obtain your green card while in the United States through the adjustment of status process, you’ll be able to file your adjustment of status application when a visa number becomes available. You can find out when a visa number will become available by checking the monthly visa bulletin. After filing the adjustment of status application, the process can take between four months to a year or longer. The time it takes to get your green card will depend on the type of family relationship you have with the permanent resident or United States petitioner, whether there are any special issues with your case and the backlog at your local USCIS office.

      Hola Sonia,

      En primer lugar te agradezco por haberme escrito a través de esta página. Quisiera por favor que te tomes el tiempo de enviarme tus dudas a través de la “Contact Form” que tengo en la página web para que me llegue un correo tuyo y podamos discutir tu caso en privado. De antemano te digo que tienes opciones de inmigración, pero quisiera tener más información sobre tu caso para hablar con propiedad de cuáles son éstas opciones. Necesitaría saber el status de tu esposo, el de tu padre y que me expliques brevemente cómo estás trabajando con información que no es “real”. Todo esto es importante para poder estudiar tu caso y ofrecerte la mejor opción migratoria para ti y que no tengas ningún problema. Espero tu contacto a través de http://immigrationvirginia.com/request-virginia-immigration-lawyer-consultation/ y hablaremos más sobre ti pronto.
      Una última pregunta: ¿tú hablas inglés? Si es así, te agradecería también que lo escribieras en inglés porque mi español no es muy bueno.
      Saludos.
      Kimberley
