Miller Mayer immigration attorney Kristal Ozmun recently received approval of a green card petition and concurrently filed an application for adjustment of status in less than 3 months without an interview for a Peruvian spouse of a U.S. citizen. After submitting a response to a request for additional evidence issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), both the immigrant visa petition and concurrently filed adjustment of status application were quickly approved. The beneficiary is now a lawful conditional permanent resident of the United States. USCIS’s recent move towards waiving interviews in many marriage-based green card applications is a welcome change that leads to more prompt approvals for our clients.

Permanent resident (“green card”) applications are filed for either employment-based categories or family-based categories. Miller Mayer has decades of experience with both and we proudly represent families in their immigration journeys. Spouses of U.S. citizens are immediately eligible to pursue a green card with the submission of their I-130 petition. If you have an immigrant relative for whom you would like to petition to help them obtain permanent resident status in the United States, please consult with a Miller Mayer attorney regarding next steps.
