If you are lawfully in the United States, you may qualify to file USCIS Form I-485 for adjustment of status. After you file USCIS Form I-485 for Adjustment of Status, there are several things to keep in mind while you wait for your final interview. It is important to keep copies of any submissions and I-797 notices for your records and to respond in a timely manner to any USCIS requests. We review the adjustment of the status process and what to expect below.
After you have filed an application, petition, or other benefit requests with US Citizenship and Immigration Services, USCIS schedules a biometrics appointment at a local Application Support Center (ASC). During a biometrics appointment, USCIS may take your photo, signature, and index fingerprint for purposes of a background and security check.
