Adjustment of Status in Houston Immigration Court

What Is Adjustment of Status?

An adjustment in status allows immigrants to change their status to lawful permanent residency while residing in the U.S. Usually this process takes place for those who have entered the U.S. on some type of visa through family-based immigration laws under the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The Adjustment of Status Process in Texas

The family-based adjustment of status is done through the USCIS for the majority of individuals. In these cases, the person has not had any contact with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. These are immigrants who affirmatively file the application through USCIS which adjudicates the matter.

The adjustment of status in court is typically filed after a person has been detained by ICE and placed in deportation proceedings. Sometimes, these individuals have to proceed while in custody, which can take anywhere between three and six months before a decision is made. In other cases, these individuals are released under bond and are on the non-detained docket with the court.

Can an Immigration Judge Adjust Your Status?

Their case will then proceed in court as a defensive application. In the court version of adjustment of status, the matter is not decided by USCIS but by an immigration judge.
