Adjustment of Status (AOS)

AOS is an abbreviation for ‘Adjustment of Status’; it occurs when the I–485 form is completed by the primary applicant with the USCIS. Also, immigrants currently living in the US on a valid visa and are looking to obtain legal permanent residency on conditional basis, based on accepted or pending immigrant petitions, can use this process as well. Using Form I-485, EB-5 investors living in the US and have an approved Form I-526 can put in an application for Adjustment of Status. Further, the principal alien’s approved I-526 enables their immediate family members, i.e. spouses and children aged 21 and below who are unmarried, to apply simultaneously.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing. Because of the recent court ruling that reversed the 2019 Modernization regulations, the investment level has shifted temporarily from $900,000 back to $500,000.

If the program is reauthorized before the regulations are updated, there may be another window of opportunity to file at $500,000.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in December, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
