Miller Mayer immigration attorney Nicolai Hinrichsen recently received approval of an I-485 adjustment of status (AOS) application for a Vietnamese client with an approved I-526 EB-5 immigrant investor petition. Our client filed their AOS application shortly after passage of the EB-5 Reform and Integrity Act of 2022, which reauthorized the EB-5 program for 5 years. The Act also allows for concurrent filing of AOS applications while I-526 petitions are pending with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for investors for whom a visa number is available. Our client’s I-526 petition was pending at the time their AOS was filed. After USCIS approved the underlying I-526 petition, it also approved the client’s AOS application, which was pending for less than 6 months.

If you have a pending I-526 petition and are interested in whether filing an adjustment of status application may be an option for you, or if you have an approved immigrant visa petition and are ready to begin the AOS process, Miller Mayer’s extensive experience in immigration law can help you navigate this important process.
